Did You Know Every 60 Seconds Apple Sell’s over 1000 iDevices.

If you didn’t think much could happen in just one minute take a look at this. It will give you a new perspective next time someone says, give me just one minute.

For instance in that one minute it took you to get ready, Apple just sold over 1000 iDevices. That’s pretty insane. But that’s not all. The folks over Go-Gulf produced this incredible infographic displaying some interesting things that happen every 60 seconds. It’s pretty crazy.

Some of the staggering numbers I found most interesting were that 2 million internet users watched porn online and yet only 232 computers got infected by malware. Which is the number one way people get viruses.

Besides the 1,000 iDevices sold every minute, the most surprising thing to me was that PayPal recieves almost a quarter-million dollars in transactions every minute!

Do you think that people are feeling more and more comfortable paying for more expensive things with Paypal?

Here’s a complete rundown of the infographic.
