In case you haven’t noticed, Google has gotten very, very big. Bloomberg reports that Google has recently surpassed Exxon Mobil to become the second most valuable company in the United States behind, you guessed it, Apple. Based on Bloomberg’s data, Google is now worth $393.5 billion, just a smidgen over the $392.6 billion valuation of Exxon. Apple, on the other hand, has a market value of $465.5 billion, a significant leap over the silver and bronze candidates. Microsoft has taken fourth place on the list, but falls far short of the top three with $302.1 billion. It’s only been a few years since Apple claimed the top spot from Exxon, but this latest development is another sign that the tech industry is becoming more prominent than ever before.
