Apple's market value is now about $245 billion -- just shy of Microsoft's (MSFT, Fortune 500) $270 billion. And Apple's revenue this year is expected to be on par with Microsoft, at around $61 billion.

I never knew that. Interesting.

I had no idea Apple had grown so large. Imagine what their market share would be if they priced their equipment compatible with that of Microsofts?

UPDATED: Apple Deposes Microsoft to Become World's Biggest Tech Company (http://www.dailytech.com/UPDATED+Apple+Deposes+Microsoft+to+Become+Worlds+B iggest+Tech+Company/article18532.htm)

Apple has at least brief briefly become the world's largest tech company in terms of market cap. That spot has been held for over a decade by Microsoft (http://www.dailytech.com/article.aspx?newsid=18532#), makers of the Windows operating system.

In trading Monday, Apple Inc.'s shares slipped $1.11 to close at $244.11, making its market cap about $222 billion. Microsoft's shares dipped even more, falling to $1.06, or 4.1 percent, to close at $25.01, for market cap of about $219 billion. Market cap is the dollar value of a company's outstanding shares, and is commonly used to compare companies in terms of size.
