Apple Is The New Microsoft; Apple Is Now The Biggest Tech Company


Apple today overtook Microsoft as the world’s biggest tech company. Apple’s value went up to $227.1 Billion overtaking Microsoft which had a value of $226.3 billion.

Most of Apple’s success has been attributed to the success of its iPods, iPhones and most recently, the iPad.

Microsoft is having an uphill climb with its new mobile strategy with Windows Mobile 7 and its Zune product which is far from catching the iPod anytime soon.

Microsoft still dominates with its Windows and Office products but Apple’s strategy with its products which all feature touchscreens for got more success overtimes.

With Apple being the top dog now, will it continue to innovate or become complacent like Microsoft did?

With Google slowly coming into the picture, the competition is becoming bigger.
