Now that Google has reported earnings, we can add another incredible stat to Apple’s mind bending fourth quarter performance.
For the December quarter, Apple generated $US74.6 billion in sales.
For all of 2014, Google generated $US66 billion in sales.
That’s really impressive. So is this…
The combined fourth quarter revenue of Microsoft, Google, and Amazon was $US73.9 billion.
That’s less than Apple did over that same period.
Just as impressive? Apple, against a bigger number, is growing faster than these companies.
- Apple’s sales were up 30% for the quarter.
- Microsoft’s sales were up 8%.
- Amazon’s sales were up 15%.
- Google’s sales were up 15%.
We could be here all day marveling at Apple’s quarter. It’s nuts how much better Apple is doing than the rest of the tech industry right now.
