Only Apple can save Europe now | The Daily Dust delivering the best bric a brac, daily news and events with a British flavour

If the continent needs a do-over for money, lets ask Steve Jobs nicely.

Tucked away in the wonderful Things Apple Is Worth More Than Tumblr site is this lovely statistic from Reuters:

Earlier on Friday the DJ STOXX euro zone banks index fell 4 percent, valuing its 32 members at $340 billion. In contrast, Appleā€™s market capitalization has soared to $340 billion on the back of the success of innovative technology products like iPods, iPhones and iPads.

So the 32 banks that control the European currency could start again if Apple were to "see them good". Throw in a balanced budget proposal in each National Government and you’ve solved the problem.

Okay, we’d never be able to run a Windows 8 device on the continent, but that seems a fair exchange, doesn’t it?
