  1. Honey, I’m home!

    Daddy, daddy, what’s in your pocket.

    Why $10 billion dollars son.

    Wow dad, Mikey next door will be so upset.

    Why son? Who’s Mikey anyway?

    You know, Mikey Dell, the kill who hit me in the face, in 4th grade.

    That little twerp. Well son, here’s some pocket change, go put it in your little piggy bank.

    Daddy, you’re so silly, you know that won’t fit.

  2. wow. remember, back in the good old days, what a big deal it was to pass exxon and it switched back and forth several times? and before that how we celebrated every integer multiple of dell’s value when they occurred? and now we get to celebrate the integer multiples of value over microsoft! wow.

    1. And now we can count happily count how many of the top tech firms that Apple is worth more than combined. For example – its worth more than all three of its old nemeses combined: IBM, Intel, and Microsoft! Its also worth more than its newer internet frenemies combined: Google, Amazon, and Facebook… well, almost – just another $20B to go for this one. And of course we can tag Blackberry on to the end of any of these lists).

    2. That wasn’t such a long time ago. I remember the thrill I got when Apple passed Microsoft in market cap value. Unbelievably, Apple left all those other companies in the dust. I would never have imagined something like this would happen. I never expected dividends, either. Now I’m waiting for Apple to double Google’s market cap. It’s very, very close to happening. As soon as Apple announces Google is no longer the default search engine for Safari, I feel certain Google’s share price will take a nice hit.

  3. Memo to Apple: Thanks for the 2 15″ MBPs my wife and I purchased last year with long term capital gains on a the sale of few shares of AAPL stock, and thanks in advance for the Apple Watches you’re going to buy us this year.
