Holy crap that's a lot of money...

Move over, Microsoft. Your record as the most valuable public company ever has been topped.
Apple today set a new mark as the most valuable publicly traded company of all time, reaching more than $622 billion in market capitalization, a measure of a company's stock price times the number of shares it has outstanding.

Microsoft had long held the record for the most valuable public company, having hit $618.9 billion at the end of 1999. Since then, the software giant has watched its market cap fall to its current $258.2 billion.

I just bought an iPad yesterday... It's worth a little bit more now.

That's crazy though

Your iPad isn't worth more, but Apple is... you pushed them over the edge with your purchase... be happy.

All of that worth is tied up in promise of future growth that just can't be there.


Unless they start making blenders and sex toys.

That's what I meant... After re reading my post I see how it sounded though.

Apple is taking over the world. This apple TV thing looks to be getting ready to take of too. Steve Jobs just went down in history as the most successful business man of all time!

Suck it Trump!!

Apple products are all overpriced. You can almost always get a windows computer or android phone/tablet with better specs for a lower price. What apple excels at is advertising. Their products are trendy and we live in a culture where style is more important than substance.

I have an Ipod Touch 4th gen. I will say the Apple OS operates smoothly. I never have any errors pop up or have strange pauses on the IOS 5 device.

But I think people who are more knowledgeable about their phone or computer will prefer the level of customization and control offered by Windows and Android devices.
