A new infographic provided by Statista charts the growth of Apple in relation to other tech companies from the fourth quarter of 2011 versus the fourth quarter of 2010.
A couple of interesting things to note from the data:
Apple’s growth of 73%, compared to Microsoft’s 5%. Once up a time, that would have seemed like a joke. Apple had gambled on the educational sector for its sales growth of computers, and that gamble was not paying off. Microsoft dwarfed Apple in the personal computer market.
Netflix and Amazon both outpaced Google.
HP, RIM and Nokia went into the red.
