    Ah history ...

    Still - IBM Today 387K employees, market cap $ 108 Billion, revenues last year $ 105 Billion

    Apple: 32K Employees, market cap 80.1 billion , revenues 32.5 billion

    10x Employees to produce about 3x the revenues

    Market cap not the far off :)

    Apple is way more cool regardless :)

    Remember, at one time Apple actually had a bigger market cap than IBM. Damn this financial crisis. :(
