” In the five seconds it has taken you to read this sentence, Samsung has earned a staggering $32,430.
This converts to £20,200 and is what the average university graduate in the UK earns in a year.
To highlight the obscene amounts of money the world’s major tech companies earn, a money-saving website has created an interactive infographic that shows exactly how much each firm makes in real time.
The site, designed by UK-based Happier, is also interesting because it highlights how successful the companies are in comparison to one another.
Phone makers Samsung, Apple, BlackBerry and Nokia all make the list, as do other hardware and software manufacturers Microsoft, Google, HP, Dell, Foxconn, IBM, Oracle and Cisco.
Facebook is the only social network on the list, earning $230 (£143) a second, and Amazon is the only online retailer and earns $1,996 (£1,247).
Apple is in second place, earning $4,539 (£2,835) per second, with BlackBerry floundering at the bottom of the list earning a relatively small $205 (£128) every second.”
