Apple has penetrated virtually all forms of major communications used in everyday life -- it seems that its products are everywhere, so to gauge the sheer magnitude of their influence, use this 'Just How Big Is Apple?' infographic.

As of late, big things have been dropping for Apple: Steve Jobs passed; they became the largest company by market capital (overtaking Enron) and they are set to distribute their first dividend in over a decade. On a more creative note, this infographic avoids using dry statistics, like showcasing their quarterly earnings or prospects. Conversely, these statistics delve past the glossy exterior to reveal the selling power of big products such as the iPhone, iPad and IOS operating system in relation to babies born, cars sold and even the weight of the Eiffel Tower.
