Apple is having a bit year. A line of successful products has helped propel its market capitilization value to past Microsoft. In other words, from a total stock price point of view (number of shares multipled by stock price), it is now larger than Microsoft. Apple is so big, that rumors surrounding its upcoming annual developers conference (WWDC) included an appearance by Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer
This was, however, denied by Microsoft via tweet from its official Twitter account (@Microsoft) and reported by Engadget.
However, while it is clear that Microsoft’s Steve Ballmer won’t make an appearance at WWDC, I wouldn’t be surprised if a less senior Microsoft executive made an interesting announcement or two there. Microsoft Office for Mac 2011 is an obvious announcement. A port of Microsoft Silverlight for the iPhone and iPad seems unlikely, but, who knows?
