    Impressive!

    But a company does not have the same responsibilities a nation have, so comparing is a bit stretch.

    But Apple worth more than that, because Apple sells its own creation, so its employees ad values to the company compared to those companies that chose to sell licensed OS.

    more than the 32 largest banks in EU. This is impressive.

    Yikes, apples getting expensive.

  4. Christian says:

    It is not more then the 32 largest banks in all their value, it is only in free-float shares.

    There’s your answer for Greece and Italy. Who needs German to bail out those countries. Apple can just buy those countries and end their debt crisis. Don’t get me wrong…may the universe bless Steve Jobs for his imagination, innovation and changing the way we communicate. But How much money does a corp need to make?
    With all that money…Apple should be pricing iPads for $150.00,.
    Hell they release a new ipad every six months…and people keeping buying them. It’s called planned obsolescence. “Just throw you old ipad away…the new one comes in white. Oh Boy! I can’t wait to spend my $400 on the one that will come in green. I just bought an -x-10 Android 2.3, TABLET 4GB INTERNAL STORAGE, 7″ FOR $200 thousands of free aps available on Android market.
