Apple surpassed Microsoft's market cap last week. Microsoft 's revolutionary windows and its user friendly user tools took the world by storm and made computing reach the masses. Bill Gates and Microsoft were the innovation icons in the last decade of 20th century.
Apple which was literally bailed out by Microsoft in the last decade has bounced back because of it's innovation. iphone, itouch and ipad are to a great extent shaping the future of computing tomorrow.
Innovation and making the innovation reach the masses makes great companies. Innovative computing , wireless data connection and cloud computing are the mantras of today which have got companies like Apple and Google to the fore.
Most of these companies have a R&D centre in India and hope a few of the next generation innovations comes from India or from Indian companies themselves which are now more dominant in the IT services sector. Hope some day we will have a company from India doing the same feat that Google and Apple are doing today.
