Exxon, as of writing has $417.45 billion in market cap compared to Apple’s $412.61 billion. The companies traded titles of the most valuable company back and forth in August of 2011. As Apple’s stock price continues to fluctuate, expect the titles to go back and forth between both companies again.

    Apples needs to take a page out of RIM’s book…

    Weather the storm…but more importantly, do not follow RIM’s footsteps and prematurely release your next product unfinished. Do that and they won’t get annihilated like RIM has to the point where they’re facing a DO or DIE situation.

  • With RIM, they talked like nothing was going to change and their product was better than the competition. Heck, their CEOs even downplayed apps. That was their failure.

    Yup. Lack of innovation killed RIM. Same thing will happen to Apple, if the next iOS and iPhone/iPad are a disappointment. They need to stay a step ahead of the competition, and quite frankly, I think they are falling behind.
