Apple recently went past the $370 billion in revenue and the company has definitely hushed many of its competitors and haters. We just thought we would share the infographics on what companies are smaller than Apple. While the infographic does make this look as if Apple is some Greek god and that no one has ever been so highly valued, it sums to be interesting overall.

Though these devices are really smart bringing the functionality of a Desktop Computer in to your palms, they do need some serious energy to keep on with it.
