    Now down in third place for worldwide smartphone sales though. Still, third place is not bad for a company that apparently has no idea how to even make a functioning charger never mind a functioning phone.

    such a big number i don't know what it actually means, but apparently not just me:
    'In British English, a trillion used to mean a million million million (i.e. 1,000,000,000,000,000,000). Nowadays, it's generally held to be equivalent to a million million (1,000,000,000,000), as it is in American English.'

    A bit more perspective. If you'd invested 50 grand in Apple shares 10 years ago (Dec 2008) your shares would now be worth about a million quid.

    I believe there are a couple of current Urbs who did exactly that.

    Mazel tov!

    Someone on here - I forget who - said Apple were a flop. They’d failed.

    I can remember a few years ago when they just made macs for graphics people and never looked likely to produce a mass market product, just goes to show what some genuinely popular products can do for a company. Apple are no longer niche!

    I also remember those times. It was a lot more than 'a few years ago' :D
