I love it when members of the new media use new tools to present old information in new ways. MacDailyNews on Apple now worth seven times Dell’s market value.
Michael Dell, founder and CEO of Dell in 1997, when asked what he would do if he was in charge of Apple:
What would I do? I’d shut it down and give the money back to the shareholders.
It is remarkable how things change. From MDN today:
In NASDAQ trading today, Apple gained $7.57 to $210.64 to hit a market value of $189.72 billion or more than 7 times that of Dell’s current $27.03 billion. Apple is also a debt-free company and currently has significantly more cash and short-term investments on-hand ($39.8 billion) than Dell Inc. is worth.
Honestly, I think Steve Jobs is saving all that money so he can buy Microsoft.
