So it must have been with an exhilarating sense of satisfaction that Steve Jobs and the Apple brass watched another dazzling set of quarterly financials push the company's stock price up to around $187 a share today, vaulting Apple's market cap past IBM's by about $6 billion.

And while Google-watchers go gaga over its soaring share price (see "A six-letter word for bubble? Try gasbag"), note that an investor who bought Apple on the same day Google stock debuted in 2004 would have, as of the close of market yesterday, made 40 percent more than if the same money had been put into the search sovereign's shares.

From: Apple now bigger than Big Brother
That's a remarkable performance for Apple, founded in 1977. Steve Jobs is Silicon Valley's Babe Ruth.
