Apple Is Now Bigger Than Microsoft: The Most Valuable Tech Company

Quote:
Apple is now bigger than Microsoft. Apple's market cap passed Microsoft's today, just two months after edging under Walmart. The latest showing from Google Finance puts Apple's market cap at $225.98 billion to Microsoft's $225.32 billion.
All the news is about Google, and Apple slides into the lead.

If I remember what I learned from economics class correctly, market capitalization is equal to the number shares times the price of each share.

While Apple may be bigger than Microsoft by looking at market capitalization, market capitalization itself is only one way to measure how powerful a company is and it's influence.

Also, this might be only temporary as what's driving Apple's market cap is the price of the stock currently which can fluctuate very easily.

It is still sad that apple (at least in one sense) is bigger than Microsoft...*turns away crying*
But like you said, it could just be temporary. *sniff*

It's the iWant factor driving it up.

They can get some healthy margins on each iPad as they did on the iPhone. A better business model than Microsoft's, there's nothing more one can say...

Apple is now bigger than Microsoft. That's physically impossible. There's no way an apple can be bigger then Microsoft.

Meh, it's Apples turn to be to be one of the most hated conglomerates for a change.

The Apple 'underdog' schtick got old, real fast...

They won't be realistically toppling MS dominance where it counts any time soon, no matter how many iThings they release.
