Apple’s new quarterly earnings in perspective

Very interesting read on TUAW about Apple’s earnings report, it puts the plain figures in a very interesting perspective.

During the last quarter, iPhone sales reportedly exceeded sales of all Android handsets, from all vendors, combined.
Apple earned almost $34 billion in revenue from iPhone and iPad sales — in three months. Google’s revenue for 2011 — all of Google, for the entire year — was $37 billion.

The iPad by itself, in one quarter, brought in more revenue than 230 out of the Fortune 500 companies earn in an entire year.

The iPhone by itself, in three months, brought in more revenue than McDonald’s made in all of 2010.
