that's revenue you are talking about.. we are talking about market capitalisation i.e how much the company is valued at ..

Joking! Joking! :D

They deserve it they've put much efforts and taken a lot of risks with Blu Ray and Ps3

zootang2970d ago (Edited 2970d ago )

Well they do have some of the biggest film and music studios with artists like Elvis, Michael Jackson and Bruce Springsteen. Not to mention the electronics division with TV's, Blu Ray, DSLR's and HD camcorders used by the film, music and sport industry. Then you have the Mobile Phones (Sony ericksson) and Playstation.

Sony are HUGE!

Nice to see that Apple overcharges their products and doesn't pay dividends for investors so one could see why they have that much capital

lowcarb2970d ago

Yeah if that's the case then most definitely.

Viddharto2970d ago

Actually, apple doesn't overcharge it's products. It's just that all programs and such stuff are already included. If you buy a windows computer, you have to buy office etc. separately.

last I checked my mac only came with a 30 day trial of iwork suite, no other office suite preinstalled.

Bnet3432970d ago

Nice try, but Macs are the same way. FinalCut Pro = $99. Windows Movie Maker = Free.

PS: I got Microsoft Office for free, mostly every college student gets it free or discounted.

plb2970d ago

I hate Apple and Apple products

Leafhopper2970d ago

I sell Propane and Propane accessories

Wanna be buddies?

Remember what Apple says Be A Leader Not A Follower!

Yet Seven reached 15% market share in less than a year while it took MacOSX decades to grow to 5%

Monkey5212970d ago

Seven reached that because people were in a hurry to get rid of Vista.
