A Relative Look at Apple’s Cash Reserves

There was much discussion in the tech community last week following Apple’s record-breaking earnings report. One highlight was the Cupertino-based company’s announcement that they now have over US$97 billion in cash. 

While Apple doesn’t have any immediate plans for the money and the company isn’t “letting it burn a hole in [its] pockets,” as CFO Peter Oppenheimer commented, it is still a difficult sum to comprehend. Luckily, the folks over at MBA Online have created an infographic that puts Apple’s cash reserves in perspective, while paying homage to the great Johnny Cash.
