It’s official — we’re bigger than IBM

Yup. Stock’s at $185 and our market cap has hit $160 billion, meaning we’re now worth more than IBM as Fortune points out. Of course Fortune can’t resist asking, “Who’s the Big Brother now?” Fair enough. But I like to think of us as a kinder, gentler Big Brother. Unlike IBM, which used its monopoly and market power to abuse customers, we at Apple are using our monopoly and market power to make the world a better place. It’s just simpler when everyone can focus their attention on one vendor. As long as that vendor is not doing evil. Like us. And Google. Okay. Now fasten your seatbelts, friends, because we are going to have one hell of a wild holiday season. Peace out.
