"Apple, already the world's most valuable company, hit the $600 billion level for the first time Tuesday.Business & Technology | Apple market value hits $600B | Seattle Times Newspaper
Only one other company has been worth $600 billion - Apple's old sparring partner Microsoft Corp. It reached that valuation for 13 trading days around the turn of the millennium, at the peak of the technology stock mania.
Apple's market capitalization is still well below Microsoft's 1999 record if inflation is taken into account. The $619 billion then becomes $846 billion."
