Apple rich enough to pay everyone $556

Posted: Updated:
(NBC) -

U.S. technology giant Apple is so rich, guess how much it could pay you and every other American -- if it wanted to?

That would be $556 each. 

How is this possible?

Apple generates its money by their ability to get consumers to buy high-priced phones.

And that in turn has helped Apple generate a record pile of cash and investments of nearly $178 billion, enough to place $556 in the hands of each and every American.
