Google market value overtakes Microsoft.
Google has overtaken Microsoft for the first time in terms of market value, becoming the third-most valuable company on public markets behind Exxon Mobil and Apple.
Based on closing prices yesterday, Google's shares ended the day to value the company at US$249.1 billion, nearly US$2 billion more than Microsoft. Google is in an escalating arms race with Apple (US$628 billion), the next company in Google’s sights, after Apple launched its own less-than-stellar maps application that replaced a Google-powered version on the iPhone.
