Apple now worth more than Microsoft and Dell combined

Invisible Shield for Apple iPhone 4!Shares of Apple Inc. (AAPL) closed today at $269.00, putting the company’s market value at $244.77 billion.

Microsoft Corp. (MSFT) currently has a market value of $219.10 billion. Dell Inc. (DELL) has a market value of $25.32 billion.

Add them both together and Apple is worth more than Microsoft and Dell combined, $244.77 billion vs. $242.42 billion, respectively.

Now, let that headline percolate around in your brain and roll it off your tongue a few times – it’s really quite satisfying.

Congrats, Apple, for a job well done! Congrats, Jobs, for an Apple done well!

Posted from a nice, warm schadenfreude bath. Ahhh!

  1. That’s an interesting factoid. And it happened on a down day too. Probably something that only MDN would have noticed. ” width=”19″ height=”19″ alt=”smile” style=”border:0;” /> I hope the news aggregators pick up on it.

  2. If I was in charge at Dell I would sell the company and…sorry couldn’t resist.

    I must have missed the shot at AT&T;, hope someone takes the time to explain why they are the problem.

    BTW, my new iPhone 4 hasn’t dropped signal regardless of how I hold it.

  3. That antenna effect is odd – doesn’t seem to affect everyone – so maybe it is to do with earthing. The variables, which are the
    conductivity of the feet or shoes, and flooring, and even body composition, especially the state of the hands, will have some effect on the efficiency of an aerial touched by the hand.

  4. @PC

    you must be talking about all the PC folks who have been buying iPods, iPhones, and iPads, downloadind Safari and iTunes, making Apple richer by the day.

    Thanks PC people!
