Apple's last quarter profit the biggest in history for any corporation


Read that headline again.

Apple's most recent quarter (Q1 2015) profit of $18.02 billion is now the biggest ever for all corporations on Planet Earth, ever.

The previous winner was Russia's Gazprom (a natural gas extractor), with measly profits of $16.2 billion. Our buds at TechCrunch bring up the fact that this means Apple makes about $8.3 million in profit each and every hour of every day.

I think Tim Cook deserves a raise.
