Slate‘s Jordan Weissmann puts Apple’s product lines into perspective versus other large companies (Tech or not).
iPhone revenues alone eclipse that of either software behemoth Microsoft or online retail giant Amazon. Businessweek (September 2013):

iPhone = Google + eBay
iPad = Yahoo + Facebook + LinkedIn + Twitter + Group + Tesla
