Inexorable march to domination

The WSJ this morning published the latest installment of the Googometer, showing Google’s market cap. At $190 billion, Google has passed HP, Coca-Cola, Intel, IBM and now Wal-Mart. Next up: Cisco. After that, SBC (aka AT&T) and Microsoft. GE and Exxon Mobile are still a ways off.

At one point, there was a satire article about Microsoft buying a small country. When Google’s stock goes up another 50% or so, that baton will pass to Google.
