Samsung earns the most, by a considerable amount.Apple is in second place, earning $4,539 per second

According to money-saving site Happier’s infographic. Samsung, left, earns the most, by a considerable amount, making $6,486 (£4,051) per second. Apple, right, is in second place, earning $4,539 (£2,835) per second, with BlackBerry floundering at the bottom of the list earning a relatively small $205 (£128) a second

In fact, BlackBerry, Nokia and Facebook were the only companies to make less than four figure amounts.

The figures are all based on the companies’ official respective earnings from the most recent quarterly reports available.

Happier took these earning amounts for each firm and worked out exactly how many days had passed in that quarter.

This can vary slightly between 90 and 92 days depending on when a company files their report.

To get to the amount each company makes per second, Happier divided a company’s earnings by days in this quarter.

This ‘day’ amount was then divided by 86,400 – the number of seconds in 24 hours – and the final figure was rounded.

According to the graphic, Microsoft makes more money than Google – $2,331 (£1,456) compared to $1,873 (£1,170)

Technology firm IBM does well, earning $3,166 (£1,978) a second, while Taiwanese electronics firm Foxconn is shown making $3,815 (£2,383) a second, and chip maker Intel makes $1,628 (£1,017) every second. 

When a user first clicks on the site, the counter next to each firm is reset to zero. As a visitor stays on the site, seconds tick by at the top of the page.

The amount each company makes – based on Happier’s figures – is updated in real-time in conjunction with this counter.
