Apple Certainly is on a Roll

"Apple's been on a roll lately. They sold a record 18.65 million iPhones in the first quarter and for the first time zoomed past Microsoft in terms of profitability. The 49,400 Apple employees helped the company earn $14 billion annually and pull 30 percent growth in earnings per share."

Apple beat Microsoft in revenue and profit, tops Google as most valued brand and now comes this little gem that says Apple is closing in on Nokia and has reached the number two spot in global smartphone maker list. Not to be stopped there though, Apple is also now number 35 on the Fortune 500 list [link]. To hit number two, they had a 114.4% growth spurt versus the industry rate of 79.7%, achieving 18.7% of the global market versus Nokia's 24.3% share.

Apple Breaks the Fortune 100

"Apple's long been highly-ranked in a number of business-related lists, but on Monday, Fortune announced that the company had jumped into the Fortune 100 list for the first time since 1994, coming in 71st place. That's a 32 spot improvement on last year, when it ranked just outside of the crème de la crème at 103."

The last time Apple made the top 100 was during the OS 7 days in the early 1990s. Seems so long ago doesn't it? These rankings are for the largest companies based on their gross revenue and adjusted for certain taxes. Also in this years list Exxon-Mobile edged out Wal-Mart for the top spot. You can see the entire Top 500 at the Fortune site.

And before we get too excited, keep in mind this was before the Windows ads came out. Just sayin'.....
