FORTUNE -- I can't vouch for the accuracy of the data in this infographic, created by business insurance provider Simply Business and posted Friday on TechCrunch, but even if it's a little off it gives you a good feel for how Apple's (AAPL) relatively small, targeted acquisitions compare with such multibillion dollar deals as Google (GOOG) buying Motorola ($12.5 billion) and Facebook (FB) trying to buy WhatsApp ($19 billion).

If you go to TechCrunch, that site's live version offers some cool interactive features.
