I Understand that Apple is now worth more than Microsoft.
Anyone got a link to confirm it ?

Re: Apple & Microsoft

That's just a share thing, I'd take it with a pinch of salt.  Microsoft make more money than Apple, more assets, more profit.  Apple though is sitting on $50 billion in cash, which the shareholders want Apple to give out to the shareholders, would you sell your shares in Apple if you could see a share of $50b coming your way?  Me either!  Put into context though, Bill Gates personal wealth is $54 billion, he as a person has more money than Apple as a company.
