Not sure why this is event a relevant metric for anything. I get the feeling the author had to write a story about something and decided an Apple/Microsoft article would get the most hits.

I should do an article on how Saudi Amarco has a market capitalization bigger than all of the technology companies listed in the US combined. It won't tell you anything though.

Am I surprised? Nope.

Do I agree with it? Absolutely not.

Well Apple's stock is overvalued at a Price to Earning Ratio of around 16x when Microsoft and Intel are around 9 - 10 respectively so this makes perfect sense, that doesn't mean Apple is better than them, just over valued

Apple's name will not go down anytime soon and people will still go crazy over Iphone 5 and Ipad 3. Slowly people in the US are seeing sense as Android has overtaken Apple but I aint gonna hold my breathe.

The funny thing is, most people that buy Macbook's are Apple fans who think they look "cool" or "sexy". Now I have to admit they do look good BUT the only thing Mac's are usefull for are audio and video editing but majority of buyers are average joe's using it for internet use when you can go and buy a netbook that will do exactly the same job and cost £250 verses £1,200.

Sheep will always be sheep. Marketing is Apple's secret weapon and they know how to use it.

Overall Intel makes a lot of profit however you dont get as much profit from making chips as you do from a computer thats silver and market up 200%
mostly this. marketing also goes a long way

Well, did you hear about the Chinese kid who sold his kidney to get the money to buy a ipad2?

Let all not forget when Microsoft bought Apple shares to keep the company afloat in the 90's.
