Apple tops Microsoft market cap, revenue, and profits • The Register

Too bad for Microsoft that Wall Street doesn’t “throw out the outliers;” Microsoft’s latest financial results would look pretty strong, if it weren’t for Apple…

After surpassing Microsoft's market capitalization and its quarterly revenues, Apple has now surpassed its quarterly profits. In the Apple quarter ending March 26, Steve Jobs and company stacked up profits of $5.99 billion, while Microsoft's most recent quarter managed (only) $5.23 billion.

Apple topped Microsoft's quarterly revenue total in October, and it did so again this time around. And then some. Jobsian revenues reached $24.67 billion, as Microsoft revenues maxed out at $16.43 billion. Apple's market cap first topped Microsoft's in June of last year.
