Interesting comparison. It would be great to see the absolute figures next to the relative ones. What strikes me most is that Apple is still way up there and even accelerating its growth. It has by far the most revenue out of the top 5 companies. Very impressive indeed.

Jason Fried from 37signals recently spoke in Chicago about Scaling Startups. Insightful and well worth watching.
Here is a presentation I held a couple of days ago. It’s about product and business development based on the lean startup principles.
More background information for this talk you can find on my blog leanentrepreneur.com. If you have remarks or questions please share in the comments.

For all those social media junkies. Here are some charts and numbers from 2011 about the use of social media around the world.
