Just when you think things can’t get anymore ridiculous when it comes to Apple, you’re wrong.  Apple just released their 2015 Q1 earnings and let’s just say, it’s mind blowing. The tech company made $74.6 billion in revenue and $18 billion in profit. That’s a 30% increase in revenue in less than a year. Just typing that out blows my mind.  I decided to do some cool math to show you how absurd this is.

Apple sold 74.5 million iPhones, 21.4 million iPads and 5.5 million Macs just in this quarter alone.  The company’s international appeal is at an all time high with international sales representing 65 percent of Apple’s revenue. China was responsible for $16.1 billion of Apple’s total quarterly revenue.  Now, brace yourself, because these numbers will make you want to smack yourself.  Apple’s quarterly revenue was more than what Google made in total revenue throughout all of 2014….but it doesn’t stop there!

If you combine the revenue of Amazon, Google and Microsoft for the same quarter, you get $73.9 billion. Apple made $74.6 billion. Need I say more?  On top of all of this greatness, Apple announced that the Apple Watch is set to begin shipping in April.

Plain and simple, Apple is a force to be reckon with and we just don’t see anyone slowing them down.
