Holy batman: Apple now worth $469 billion

From a company which went from being worth peanuts to being now one of the largest companies in the world. A legacy built upon advancements in technology which has involved design, touch screen functionality, innovative ideas, new smaller processing capabilities etc.

To put this into perspective, Microsoft is worth $255.01 billion, while Google is worth around $158 billion as of 2012’s latest figures – a combined total of $413 billion, while the worth of Apple Inc is valued at $469 billion, blowing its competitors out of the water.

I remember in 2009, Microsoft being a much larger company than Apple Inc, however I would have never have thought that Apple could have surpassed Microsoft, Google or any of the other big players. To me, it looked as if Apple Inc was the underdog, now it is the top dog in the technology industry.

There are people who literally paid peanuts for Apple stock,  which are now worth $500 per share, the same price as a basic iPad.

I first first started creating websites back in 2005. This led me to creating a free web hosting business in 2007, which still exists today. I ventured into creating types of websites such as blogs and forums using Wordpress, vBulletin, Invision Power Board, Drupal and Joomla. I've since worked on some of the leading brands in the UK finance sector, in the Search Engine Optimisation (SEO) field, and now work for MoneySuperMarket, the #1 price comparison website in the UK. Social: Google+ and Twitter.
