Apple Sells Apps Faster Than McDonald’s Sells Hamburgers [Infographic]



Apple recently announced that they’d sold just over 15 billion apps in just three years, which got ZDNet’s Eric Lai doing some number crunching, and it turns out that the App Store has just passed a big milestone: Apple’s now selling apps faster than McDonald’s can sell hamburgers.

That’s actually nine times faster than McDonald’s sells hamburgers. Of course, a lot here has to do with delivery method: if McDonald’s could squirt out cheeseburger’s through a smartphone screen, I’m guessing they could match Apple’s App Store numbers. That’s one thing to look forward to in the future, right?
