It’s official. Apple’s market capitalization of $159.37 billion has surpassed Google’s $157.56 billion. Allegedly, Steve Jobs personally called Sergey Brin and said "Eat my iShorts". Apple’s market cap only exceeded $100 billion in May of 2007, and made it into the S&P 100 index around the same time. Apple bloomed in record speed.
Microsoft, however, is worth $255,648,204,000, a hundred billion more than Apple. So while Jobs is ahead of Brin and Page, he’ll still be calling Bill Gates uncle (if he can find him).
