The iPhone is now worth more than Microsoft

Forbes:

One Apple product, something that didn’t exist five years ago, has higher sales than everything Microsoft has to offer. More than Windows, Office, Xbox, Bing, Windows Phone, and every other product that Microsoft has created since 1975. In the quarter ended March 31, 2012, iPhone had sales of $22.7 billion; Microsoft Corporation, $17.4 billion. Now when we say “worth” there’s a number of different things that we can mean.

Agreed. “Worth” may be a bit misleading but there’s no argument about the sales numbers.

    Why is Ballmer still the CEO?

      Anyone who tries to show him the door gets a chair thrown at him.

      Why would we WANT Ballmer to get booted? Him running MS virtually ensures Apple’s success in the computer market – and provides great comic relief for everyone who follows tech in general.

        How about for the sake of the economy and jobs and. . .just for the sake of having some semblance of a worthy “opponent” so that there can be some healthy rivalry?
