In the time it took you to type the words “Cult of Mac” into your web browser and read up to here in this article, Apple made approximately $162,585.

That’s the amount the Cupertino company earns every 30 seconds according to a new data visualization created on behalf of WorldPay Zinc — showing just how much revenue and profit Apple and its fellow tech giants make on a rolling basis.

The figures were amassed by pulling each company’s financial data based on the 2013 fiscal year, and then dividing the yearly totals by seconds.

Below is a table showing how Apple stacks up against its rivals:

Company
Total Revenue, $m
Total Profit, $m
Apple$170,910.00$37,037.00
Google$59,825.00$12,214.00
Microsoft$77,849.00$21,863.00
Amazon$74,452.00$745.00
Ebay$16,047.00$2,856.00
Yahoo!$4,680.38$479.89
Facebook$7,872.00$1,500.00
Twitter$664.89-$645.32
Samsung$214,968.60$28,576.00

The data visualization itself can be seen by clicking on the below link. It’s strangely hypnotic in its own way — particularly as the Apple “circle” continues to expand on screen.

      Yes, I can see how making more profit than any other tech company is a real issue for Apple.
