Interesting trends in the stock market.  Apple is bigger than
Microsoft.

For some big name software companies, here's the market
capitalization (shares times price),  the one year share price
trend, and where stocks might be in two years at current trends:

                    2010  2011      2013
                     $B    $B    %   $B
Microsoft     MSFT  261   214  -18  144  #1 -> #2 -> #5
Apple         AAPL  238   324  +36  599  #2 -> #1 -> #1
Google        GOOG  178   169  - 5  153  #3 -> #5 -> #4
IBM           IBM   158   205  +30  346  #4 -> #3 -> #2
Oracle              133   176  +32  307  #5 -> #4 -> #3

Numbers are approximate - the 2011 market cap is accurate,
the other numbers are estimated from graphs.  But then, 
this is wild speculation anyway.
