Apple’s marketcap surpasses Dell

Apple’s strong run with the iPod has lifted the company’s market capitalization to $72bn, or just slightly higher than Dell.  Engadget has a snippet from an internal email that Steve Jobs sent out marking the moment:

“Team, it turned out that Michael Dell wasn’t perfect at predicting the future. Based on today’s stock market close, Apple is worth more than Dell. Stocks go up and down, and things may be different tomorrow, but I thought it was worth a moment of reflection today. Steve.”

Kind of funny.  Here’s the Engadget link: Jobs calls out Dell, challenges to pistols at dawn .
