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.
