Today, Microsoft became the most valuable company in the world, surpassing Apple for the first time in years.

But with all this movement, those top players are snapping at each others heels, and nowhere is this more evident than yesterday, when Microsoft briefly overtook Apple as the biggest tech company by valuation.

As per Business Insider, the move was a surprising one as less than two months ago Microsoft's market value reached at $887 billion, whereas Apple's reached a peak above $1.12 trillion, marking itself as the first United States company with a $1 trillion valuation, but soon lost the status.
