Apple Market Value Bests Intel And Microsoft Combined

As the market closed on Friday, something pretty remarkable (but believable) happened: Apple’s market value was more than Intel and Microsoft, combined.

The tally as of Friday was “Wintel” $US316.8 million, Apple $US317.6 million. To “celebrate” the milestone MacDailyNews dusted off this gem from June 1998:

“What I can’t figure out is why he [Steve Jobs]is even trying [to be the CEO of Apple] ? He knows he can’t win.” – Bill Gates

Indeed. [MacDailyNews]
