41 of the Fortune 500 companies are tech companies

Apple’s in the top ten for the first time ever, Facebook hits the list, and Dell sells more than Google.

Fortune Magazine released its Fortune 500 companies today, ranking the top 500 companies by global income.

Notable this year is Apple, with its whopping $156 billion in 2012 sales, jumping into the top 10 for the first time ever. And Google, with its big $50 billion year, bulled its way up almost 20 spots to hit #55. Perhaps most impressive, however, is Facebook which, with the youngest CEO in the Fortune 500, made the list for the very first time, clocking in at 487.

Ranking companies by income is a fairly arbitrary measure, since it reveals little about how much companies actually earn, but it does show scope and scale. A grain of salt is definitely indicated, however, as Google’s profits, for instance, are many multiples of Dell’s, despite the fact that Dell is ranked #51, and Google is #55.

Here are the 41 technology companies that Fortune included on its list.

  • 6 Apple
  • 15 HP
  • 20 IBM
  • 35 Microsoft
  • 49 Amazon
  • 51 Dell
  • 54 Intel

One interesting note: While Facebook has the Fortune 500′s youngest CEO, Dole Food’s David Murdock, at 90 years old, is the Fortune 500′s oldest CEO.
