From Phandroid: "Today marks one historical event that Google will probably be celebrating. For the first time ever, Google now has a market cap higher than rival Microsoft’s. Investors pushed Google about $1 billion ahead of the Washington tech giant with $248.82 billion for Google and $247.23 billion for Microsoft as of the time of this writing. Google is said to have reached this point because of their ability to offer a multitude of successful computing products, most of which are designed to drive internet traffic back into Google’s bread and butter: ads and search." Congrats, Google! Glad to see them continuing their way up I think Larry Page has been doing great ever since he took over as CEO. Has made things more focused for Google. Which is something the company definitely needed to do, focus on key strong/services and products and axe out any extra baggage. A leaner and meaner Google is a good Google.
