Apple Just Keeps On Growing!

Here are some of the stats from today’s Apple Event:

  • Year-over-year growth is 27% for the Mac compared to 11% for the PC
  • There are 600,000 Mac developers
  • 33% of Apple’s revenue comes from the Mac. That’s enough to fund a Fortune 500 company on its own, and would rank 110th on the list (though it was made clear Apple has no plans to spin the Mac off)
  • More than 75 million people have visited an Apple Store within the last business quarter
  • The stores in China have the highest traffic of any Apple Store, signifying lots of potential in that company

Looks like Apple is a company on steroids! At least compared to its competitors. Makes you wonder how much longer before those rivals start to cry foul…. oh, wait, they already have! Apple is being taken to court by mobile phone companies left right and center it seems, whilst Microsoft and Adobe are supposed to be conspiring to bring it down a notch or two.

Guess Steve Jobs and crew must be doing something right.
