Microsoft’s is about 257 billion dollars and Google’s weighs in at about 197 billion dollars, The Washington Post reports.

According to the paper, tech bloggers have been coming up with all kinds of statistics to put Apple’s market cap in context.

Fortune’s Philip Elmer-Dewitt pointed out that Apple’s now worth more than the gross domestic product of Sweden, which is 458 billion dollars.
