Apple just became more valuable than Microsoft.

Apple Surpasses Microsoft as Most Valuable Technology Company. Apple, the maker of iPods, iPhones and iPads, overtook Microsoft, the computer software giant, on Wednesday to become the world’s most valuable technology company. In intraday trading this afternoon, Apple shares rose 1.8 percent, which gave the company a value of $227.1billion, while Microsoft’s value is about $226.3 billion. This changing of the guard caps one of the most stunning turnarounds in business history, as Apple had been given up for dead only a decade earlier.
My “PC-Fanboy” opinion (warning exaggerated):
As our country moves closer and closer to a 2 class system of only the rich and the poor, it’s amazing that a company which serves only the rich with “premium” products (Apple) can overtake a company which is built around serving all with affordable multi-option product sets (Microsoft).
In Rome the gold crafters did very well, those selling cheap but edible bread only scraped by. I think this situation is similar.

The “Apple-Fanboy” Opinion (The MAJORITY of people at this company):
Wait a minute. Apple makes everything they do more intuitive, better looking and easier. And then Microsoft tries to catch up and the rush to buy new and better gets turbo charged. Apple does the heavy lifting of actually inventing & producing well designed products and software, and MicroSpit reaps the benefits of being a so-so copycat.
If those bread sellers in old time Rome just added croissants and bagels and sticky buns to their offerings before anybody else, they would have cleaned up, too.

What do you think?
