Nice framing of the numbers. I've gotten so used to hearing numbers like this ($28.8 billion) that it doesn't even impress me all that much. I just looked at the list of the most recent US States budgets on Wikipedia to find that 28.8 billion ranks Apple at 23 compared to the most recent annual budgets. And 61 for national revenue for all countries in that list. Just wow. Absurd.
The other thing that blows me away is Apple's bonds. Just immense.
"The iPhone-maker has $148 billion of its record $257 billion cash pile invested in corporate debt alone, according to a company filing from Wednesday. That’s enough to buy all the assets in the world’s largest fixed-income mutual fund, the Vanguard Total Bond Market Index Fund, which has about $145 billion of assets including company, government and mortgage bonds."

Really looks like Apple is working hard on this. Good for them. And everyone using their products.

Just got my iPad Pro 128 GB via UPS!
Can we also talk about the amazing logistics? Got from EPZ (?)/Chengdu to my little town in one week. Well done, Tim Cook.
