Apple Dethrones Microsoft As World's Biggest Tech Company

Apple has surpassed Microsoft as the largest technology company in the world by market capitalization.

"Today Apple surpassed Microsoft in market capitalization, a metric of the perceived worth of a company. At around 2:30 pm EST, the total number of Apple shares were worth $227 billion, whereas Microsoft's were worth $226 billion. Both companies stock ended the day in the red, and have dropped in value since the greek crisis began, but Apple's share price has been falling less quickly. Of American companies, only Exxon-Mobil has a higher market cap at this point at $278 billion. According to the article: 'This changing of the guard caps one of the most stunning turnarounds in business history, as Apple had been given up for dead only a decade earlier. But the rapidly rising value attached to Apple by investors also heralds a cultural shift: Consumer tastes have overtaken the needs of business as the leading force shaping technology.'"

Maybe I should have bought Apple stock instead of gold coins.... :bonk:

It must have been my purchase of a Macbook Pro and my son buying an iPad that did it...tipped them over the top!

Andy, I must confess that I do not own Apple products, but I respect this organization tremendously.
Had the iPhone been on the Verizon network, I would have become an Apple guy...

My Macbook is hands down the single most usable computer I've had in nearly 20 years. I know that's not saying much about the old clockwork 386 powered Phillips I first bought - more an indictment of the not so good HP/Compaqs/Toshibas I've had since.

My son's recent purchase and demonstration of an iPad - for his business - convinced me that it is a great tool.

Speaking of iPads: For the past 4 weeks our Quality Supervisor has had an iPad on the shop floor on a pilot program and it has been great for everyone involved.

He is using the iPad to consult in real time QMS docs, work orders (our part drawings and specs) and material requisitions. There's no document in our system that is more than a few cliks away. Even better, he contributes to the QMS and the CAPA database several times more than before, when he had to go to his office to access the system. Magical indeed.

I had an Apple 2e that put me through college. ;):agree1: It was kind of the "It was the computer, when computers weren't cool".:lol:

I have always liked Apple products, including my Iphone. I wish I had more shekels to get the Itouch and upgrade my home computer to a Mac.
