Amazing. Apple is a rare company that can achieve 40% gross margins. Hats off! And $100 billion turnover is incredible! If the average apple product is $500, that means they are selling 200 million devices per year. It means "everybody" owns an apple product.
There were two schools of MBA business thought:
1./ Make a million $ off each customer (and only have a few customers), or
2./ Make a few $ off each customer (and have millions of customers)
But apple broke the rules:
3./ Make hundreds of $ off hundreds of millions of customers.
... some things in life just drive you bonkers. Especially the rubbish you see in forum posts
