Apple Bigger than Microsoft?

In Pirates of Silicon Valley, the epic late-‘90s TV movie about Bill Gates, Steve Jobs, power, passion and pocket protectors, Anthony Michael Hall's Gates bellows at Noah Wyle's Jobs during a heated discussion, "I got the loot, Steve!"

Uh, not so fast, fictional Bill. Apparently one analyst thinks that Apple could be generating more revenue than Microsoft in five years time. Maybe Steve will end up with the loot -- and the coolness -- after all. It hardly seems fair to have both.
