Apple Is The Worlds Second Largest Company

I would have thought Microsoft be a close second place but apparently according to reports Apple pulled ahead right behind Exxon in company worth.

Currently each share of the Apple company goes for 293 per, and the total cap is 267bn. These are the numbers from some of the top companies around the world giving Microsoft their total cap of 214.5bn and Exxon leading with 314bn. 

This came as a surprise to me to see how far ahead Apple is from competing companies given that Microsoft has it's fingers in more industries than Apple is doing very successful with all of them. You do have to give credit to them though, to have come so far in the industry and pull ahead of gas companies and all, Steve Jobbs has no problem putting out any product he wants because apparently he has the money for it.

Microsoft is the biggest in the world of PCs, but I think Apple has their fingers in more areas. Yes, Microsoft has stuff like Zune, etc. but Apple is way more successful in those areas. On the other hand, I'm not sure how Xbox figures into all that.

Microsoft has it's game studio, music player and OS and currently coming out with a new phone, and the game studio actually makes games as well as makes the consoles. There is also all the software from Microsoft including office and outlook.

I do know that Apple has it's hand in Dreamworks so that is a big income for them.

I find Apple to be somewhat of a hipster phenomena atm, it's a good company and they do make quality products but meh.

I can't stand Apple's tech. It's too locked down in its own proprietary bullshit and doesn't "just work".

And he also has no problem sending all the work to China and India, where salaries amount to ... oh ... about $10/day? Easy to make billions when you're raping everybody else back home.
