In NASDAQ trading at 2pm today, Microsoft (MSFT) had a market value of $274.04 billion.
Double that and you get $548.08 billion.
Also at 2pm, the value of Apple (AAPL) was $549.22 billion or more than double the value of Microsoft.
Just look at what Steve Jobs hath wrought!
This milestone reminds us of a quote uttered by a confused man nearly 14 years ago:
What I can’t figure out is why he [Steve Jobs] is even trying [to be the CEO of Apple]? He knows he can’t win. – Bill Gates, June 1998
One more thing… Boom!
Apple now worth more than Wintel (Microsoft and Intel combined) – June 3, 2011
