Sign of the times: Apple now world's most valuable company

Apple_logo_rainbow_6_color Even with all the problems the US economy has been suffering the past three years, technology companies have somehow been able to keep themselves in the black. Well, tech companies, and big oil ones, too. 

ExxonMobile, the former world's most valuable company, was passed today on the stock market not once, but twice, by Apple, Inc. They're still very close, with the gap between the two companies only being about $5 million.

I wanted to bring this story to your attention because this is a really big deal. A tech company such as Apple passing a big oil company on the stock market seems absolutely crazy. Not everybody uses Apple products, but every single person I know uses gas and oil. So that means that more and more people are getting into having technology all over their house. 

Anyway, I thought this was really cool. At the time of this article's publication, Apple is still number one. That can change, but even just the thought of Apple being so close to a company like ExxonMobile is still amazing.

  • Apple needs to be VERY CAREFUL…and GEt rid of the extra cash fast!
    That is how/ why the givt went after Gates & microsoft….
    please someone tell Mr. S. Jobs!

  • Um… Microsoft was a monopoly engaged in unfair business practices against competitors. The government didn’t siphon off Microsoft’s cash, either.

  • Few use Apple products, but every single person I know uses gas and oil- Apple stock bubble ready to pop

    It doesn’t surprise me that Apple’s making lots of money.
    They found their niche- selling overpriced crap to idiots with money, and they’ve exploited that niche beyond anyone’s wildest expectations.
    Does it matter that the stuff they sell is glossy-white junk?
    Not really. People still buy it anyway.

  • the sad cries of the envious of apple. Just because you don’t have one, doesn’t mean its not good. Anyway, I have a mac with a dual core processor and its i5, most pc’s don’t even have an i ! Most people think its just glossy computers, but you have to stop and look at specs!

    Besides, everyones allowed an opinion, does it matter what you like more. You can’t say pc’s are better, because you said so. Everyone is allowed an opinion.
