Apple (AAPL) just reported its Q4 numbers. And, um, I think I just wet my pants.
"The company sold 37 million iPhones in the quarter, 15.4 million iPads, 5.2 million Mac computers, and 15.4 million iPods, it said."
Q4 revenues at Apple came in at a whopping $46.1 billion. In just one quarter! And this $46B in sales represents a 76% surge over Q4 2010's revenue figure.
I love Google. I love Amazon. There are many other companies out there growing at an extremely fast clip, offering the best products or services in their niche, and fulfilling a consumer or business need that is totally pervasive today. But whether or not you love the fanboi-ism that Apple has either deliberately or unintentionally created all across the country and the world today, there is one thing that these numbers simply do not permit denying at this point:
Apple is the single greatest company in America today.
There is just nobody even close.
