Many folks think of Apple as a “small” computer company. Wrong.
It’s small when compared to the entire bunch of firms that make Wintel systems. But of the regular, standard 500 largest companies in the
list, Apple comes in at number 236.
That, according to the 2001 list, makes Apple bigger than Pepsi, NBMA, Corning, Chubb, Rockwell, Charles Schwab, Kellogg, AOL, Unisys, NCR, Nextel, Southwest Airlines, B.F.Goodrich, Litton Industries, 3Com, LTV, ITT Industries, AMD, Black & Decker, Pitney Bowes, Brunswick, McGraw-Hill, Mutual of Omaha, Maytag, Bethlehem Steel, Barnes & Noble, FMC, TWA, New York Times, Hilton Hotels, Qualcomm, ACE Hardware, Ralston-Purina, Coors, Silicon Graphics, Borden, Polariod, Dun & Bradstreet, Dow Jones, Tiffany, and more.
We just thought you’d like to know. And thanks to Tracy Valleau, CEO of
Digital Light Studios, for sending this our way.
