Infographic: Cash. Apple's got it

So after Apple's Quarterly profits report, it's fair to say that the old saying 'made of money' goes some way to describing the state of the company at the moment.  It seems rather difficult to question just how far $400 billion could really be used, likened to asking similar questions such as "how long is a piece of string?"  If split evenly, how much can Apple pay each of it's employees?  How much of this money is 'reserve cash?'  And, most interestingly, how many countries' worth of public debt can the reems of profit pay off?  All this and more in our favourite infographic of the moment, courtesy of MBAonline.com.

Infographic of the day: Michael Bay

Lets be honest, even though the simple title "Infographic of the day" seems menial enough, the fact that the name "Michael bay" has been put just a colon and space to the right of it just makes the whole affair seem more epic.
