Apple's market capitalization hit $222 billion on Wednesday, leaving it ahead of rival Microsoft as the largest technology company in the world when the closing bell rang on Wall Street.

The dethroning of Microsoft now makes Apple -- for now -- the second largest American company, behind only Exxon-Mobil. Apple has a ways to go to catch the oil giant, which has a market capitalization of nearly $280 billion

While market cap is but a single metric, it's an interesting factoid all the same...

Totally irrelevant when it comes to talking about computers. If Apple's numbers were based only on it's computer division and you moved the iPod, iPhone etc... to a different area, it wouldn't even be close. Besides, Apple sells hardware while MS sells software. To get a more realistic comparison you would have to combine all companies who sell Windows based computers and hardware together to get the real picture.
