Google surpasses but then falls behind Microsoft in value Earlier this morning, search giant Google surpassed Microsoft in terms of market value before failing to keep the title of world's second largest tech company.
Google ended the day valued at $247.56 billion, slightly below Microsoft who closed at $248.8 billion.

Both combined still remain below the somewhat bloated valuation of Apple, at $620 billion, the world's largest public company.

Google has seen its shares soar this year, up 35 percent since July, alone. Microsoft has also seen gains, about 11 percent for the year.

I blame their mapping software...it just works too well. How can they ever expect to surpass Apple with software that works?
