Apple now worth 100 Billion

That puts the Cupertino-based company's perceived market value at nearly twice that of long-time rival Dell, which was valued at $59.8 billion as of noon eastern time, and approximately a third of that of Microsoft, which has been teetering around $295 billion.

Coincidentally, it will be ten years this October since Dell founder Michael Dell weighed in with his thoughts on how he would fix the then beleaguered Mac maker.

"What would I do? I'd shut it down and give the money back to the shareholders," he told a crowd of several thousand IT executives at the time.

Hi drhayden1,

You better start thinking in plane loads of apples not in plain loads. Not bad for a guy that started out as a real FFOS-type of hacker, not on speaking terms with Bill Gates in those days because the latter wanted to keep all his apples for himself, and did not offer a "bite" to others.
