Apple is doing pretty well. It’s reached number six on the Fortune 500′s top ten list.
HP, which formerly held that spot is now down at number 15. That means Apple is now the top technology company on the Fortune 500. Mega retailer Walmart is at number one.
According to TUAW, Apple was 17 last year and 35 the year before that, a spot that Microsoft now holds. Rankings are based on Revenues, says the report.
Either way, we’re sure the folks at the top of Apple are very happy right now, and enjoying the fact that the company is about to reach 50 billion apps downloaded from the App Store. It’s nice to be Apple.
