Kim Kardashian scores $17. 9 Million during marriage to NBA locked out player Kris Humphries.

The New York post pinned Kim’s earnings from the wedding at $17.9 million, a figure derived from adding up her various sponsorship deals and freebies. That’s overly simplistic, given the amount she’d have had to shell out to various agents for their cuts. But this is a woman who made $12 million the year before her wedding extravaganza and charged $2,500 entry to her birthday party. Using the $17.9 million figure as a crude estimate, Kim raked in just under $250,000 a day, and over $10,000 an hour, for her 72-day marriage.

Apple revealed it has a staggering $81.5 billion of GWOP in cash in the bank, according to reports.

That’s more  GWOP money than the United States government according to documents.

The tech giant disclosed parts of its 10K filing earlier this week, claiming it has 13.2 million square feet of building space, employs 60,400 full-time workers and made more than $37.5 billion in GWOP cash profits during the last fiscal year.

But Chief Executive Tim Cook said that money is not “burning a hole in his pocket” and that he wasn’t going to do “silly things” with it.

Cook, who took over for Steve Jobs in August, told investors in a call Wednesday he was in no hurry to decide what his company will do with the money.
