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.
