Apple Now Worth More Than Microsoft, Google, Amazon, and Facebook Put Together!

Posted in Apple, Apple News on 28/08/2012 by J. Glenn Künzler


Apple’s stock has been performing extremely well leading up to what should be a very exciting fall season for the company. New record highs are being achieved at incredible frequency, and the stock price and market cap just keep skyrocketing!

Twitter user @counternotions put the matter into perspective in a very eye opening manner:

As of the market opening this morning, Apple was worth more than four of the leading tech titans combined: Microsoft, Google, Amazon, and Facebook! That’s some serious punch that AAPL is packing! Yowza!

    I still cannot, for the life of me, understand how Apple has come to make so much profit. Too many people lacking the intelligence to choose products with far superior open source capabilities. Google, for example, realised this by bringing out their Android system; a system with endless possibilities. That is all for now. Come at me butt hurt Apple fanatics.
