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 $74.6 billion in sales.
For all of 2014, Google generated $66 billion in sales.
That’s really impressive. So is this…
The combined fourth quarter revenue of Microsoft, Google, and Amazon was $73.9 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 percent for the quarter.
- Microsoft’s sales were up 8 percent.
- Amazon’s sales were up 15 percent.
- Google’s sales were up 15 percent.
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.
