I love when tech companies go to war. And this one is going to be huge. No, not huge: Gigapocalyptical. The domination of a new age of computing is at stake, and Apple, Google and Microsoft want to win.
This is the money they can play with. First, Microsoft with $US40.4 billion in the bank. That's actual rupees plus short- and long-term securities. Apple follows up closely with $US39.8 billion, while Google trails way behind with only $US24 billion. And the almighty Intel? $US18.9 billion.
Yes, baby. I can't wait for the nuclear ballistic missiles to start filling the skies. [Silicon Insider]
