The iPhone did not exist five years ago. And now it's bigger than a company that, 15 years ago, was dragged into court and threatened with forcible break-up because it had amassed an unassailable and unthinkably profitable monopoly.

Microsoft's whole company, meanwhile, from Windows to Office to servers to XBox, generated $20.9 billion.
