#1. Apple ($544 B):
Yes you read it correctly its $544 Billion which is more than equivalent of total worth of the companies at the bottom 5 of the Top 10 in this list. This amount is double the Forex reserve India has. Apple and Microsoft were core rivals at one point of time but Steve Jobs Innovation iPhone put Apple in a position where rest of the 9 companies at the bottom can only dream to over come. The only way in which other companies can overcome Apple now is when Apple commits consistent blunders for a very long period of time. That doesn't seem to be happening any time soon and Apple is having a league of its own.

The total worth of all the Top 10 companies is about $1.8 Trillion which is more than half of China's Forex Reserves and almost double of Japan's Forex reserves.
