Apple briefly bigger than Exxon

Apple's market cap briefly rose higher than Exxon today, temporarily making Apple the most valuable company in the world.

Whether or not Apple again rises above Exxon, and whether or not they manage to stay that way for a while, it's still a huge milestone for a once-struggling tech company unsure if it could remain in business, let alone surpass the glories of their past.

Not that they'll read this but... Congrats, Apple!
I'm not their biggest fan but they deserve it if only by comparison. These other companies are doing absolutely ridiculous things (or doing nothing) marketing-wise.

This is a silly criticism.
