Apple co-owner Steve Jobs has more money than God by now, which is why Apple has unlimited options for what they could do with everything they've earned from iTunes alone.

According to Hypebot, it costs around $75 million per month for Apple to operate iTunes. Prefix pulled together a solid list of ways Apple could spend that much money that most people can only dream about.

Thank goodness for this list because now I know how many pairs of those fugly Alexander McQueen lobster claw shoes I could buy if I had $75 million.
