There were, oh, about a million article when Microsoft briefly rose above Apple in market cap last week to become the “World’s Most Valuable Company.”
It seems those articles had a short shelf life.
In Monday trading, share of Microsoft dropped $4.31 (-1.30%) to $327.31 giving the company a market value of $2.456 trillion. Share of Apple also dropped, but not as precipitously, down $1.12 (-0.75%) to $148.68, giving Apple an market value of $2.457 trillion.
Of course, you probably won’t see a million news reports stating this fact, but it’s a fact nonetheless.
Google News won’t cover our article stating this factual news because, we believe, they are a monopoly abuser about whom we have been highly critical in the past (myriad privacy violations, knocking off iPhone’s operating system look and feel, etc.). So, it seems Google and/or their algorithm blocks our site from appearing under their “News” tab (since circa 2009).
Which should make you wonder what other facts aren’t showing up in under Google’s so-called “News” tab.
MacDailyNews Take: Yes, we’re likely to see the title swapped as the company’s market caps are so close.
No, Microsoft does not deserve to be worth more than Apple.
Without Apple, there wouldn’t even be a Microsoft today.
