Between Panda, Penguin, and the latest EMD change, Google has been continuously reinventing itself as of late – and it has paid off! Yesterday Google surpassed Microsoft to become the world’s second largest tech company. Google is a distant second from the number one monster tech company that is Apple. According to Bloomberg, Google’s stock value rose .7% with a total of $249.2 billion. Although this is an impressive increase for Google, they still trail Apple by hundreds of billions of dollars. Many stock analysts are speculating that Google’s leapfrog over Microsoft is somewhat of a coming of age for Google. As a sign of the times, it makes sense that a company who specializes in web search would overcome a company that focuses on the PC. Google is still pursuing the mobile market for search while Microsoft is trying to boost the PC market with their launch of Windows 8 in the near future. Stay tuned to see how the battle for second place in the world of tech companies plays out.
