Don't you mean Billion?

Sales in the region of $30M is a mere drop in the ocean.

Then, I have to ask what chips Apple sells to others. Apple does not posess a foundry so everything it makes has to be made by others. So Samsung and others are used to make them for Apple but I really struggle to think of what chips they sell on the open market.

Samsung on the otherhand makes chips for many people including Apple. Do these count in the sales figure? Many companies use Samsum Ram in their products. I find it hard to think that Someone the size of Samsung has only sold just over $30M worth of chips in the past year.

It would be really nice to know the real metrics for the calculation of these figures.
