Apple has snagged fourth place in The Info Tech 100 list, BusinessWeek’s rankings of the top performers in the industry. Of Apple, the magazine says: “Apple has been so successful in recent years that it’s almost boring, until you look at the numbers. As iPods become standard equipment for an increasing portion of the citizenry, the company’s sales grew 56%, to US$17.3 billion. No doubt there are threats on the horizon, such as European legislators’ push to force Apple to make songs purchased on iTunes work with non-iPod players. But with no credible rival on the scene to steal its music thunder and with interest in the Mac rising fast, 2007 is shaping up just fine for CEO Steve Jobs.”
