You Won’t Believe How Much Money Samsung And Apple Make Every Second

Anyone in the loop regarding the tech industry knows that major tech companies make a ridiculous amount of money.

But just in case the billions they take in each year didn’t get this message across, Happier.co.uk has broken down their success to figure out how much these giants make literally every second of the day, and the results are even more disturbing than their yearly revenue.

Samsung earns $6,486 per-second, while Apple earns $4,540, and Foxconn comes in third with $3,815.

Then there’s Hewlett Packard with $3,459 per-second, followed by Microsoft at $2,331.

Of the largest tech companies, the two that make the least per-second are Amazon with $1,996 and Facebook with just $230.

We can expect Tim Cook, Jeff Bezos and Mark Zuckerberg to use these statistics to confuse their workers into believing they still aren’t making as much money as their competitors and need to work harder.

Happier.co.uk has also created an interactive infographic that tracks how much money each of these companies have made since you’ve been on the site.

This can obviously be either very good or frighteningly bad news, but we’re going to go ahead and guess that it makes you depressed considering you’re probably calculating how much you make each second and are now slipping into a miserable black hole.

So here’s some good news!

According to Opposing Views (always the bearer of good news cough::Edward Snowden::cough), Occupy Wall Street activists have somehow bought nearly $15 million of the national debt.

They reportedly did this through a program called Rolling Jubilee, which buys up debt from random people through the secondary debt market, where banks sell people’s personal debt to third parties.

Since its launch one year ago, Rolling Jubilee has spent approximately just $400,000 to buy up $14,734,569.87 worth of personal debt.

“We thought that the ratio would be about 20 to 1,” said team member Andrew Ross. “In fact we’ve been able to buy debt a lot more cheaply than that.”
