Apple Is Not THAT Valuable

This guy puts the whole "Apple the most valuable company in America" thing into perspective. I'm sure this will piss off more than a few Apple fans but, for the rest of us, it is refreshing to hear someone talking common sense.

Just because Apple’s market capitalization exceeded everyone else’s market capitalization for a short time, that doesn’t make it the most valuable company in America. There are too many other factors, intangible factors, that make up a company’s value. Especially a technology company like Apple. As business owners, many of us fantasize about the millions we’ll make one-day when we sell our companies or retire comfortably as we pass our assets down to deserving family members. Like Apple’s valuation, much of this is fantasy.
