AP­PLE OF­FI­CIALLY BE­COMES THE FIRST EVER TRIL­LION-DOL­LAR BUSI­NESS While Ap­ple was hov­er­ing just be­neath the his­toric 13-fig­ure num­ber since late July, it wasn’t un­til early in Au­gust when its stocks rose 2.7% to US$207.05 — the high­est in com­pany his­tory — that it be­came of­fi­cial. Ap­ple is now the world’s first tril­lion-dol­lar busi­ness (US dol­lars, that is). Fol­low­ing the Cu­per­tino gi­ant is Ama­zon on US$878 bil­lion, Al­pha­bet on US$854 bil­lion and Mi­crosoft on US$824 bil­lion.
