What was that about AAPL? Apple (AAPL, Fortune 500)'s $450 billion-plus market capitalization means it is the world's most valuable company (again). The gadgets giant is still riding high off the popularity of its iPhones and iPads, which helped fuel its $169 billion in revenue. The question now is, what will Apple do next? A cheaper iPhone is rumored to be on the way as well as a partnership with China's biggest mobile phone carrier. Both would be a healthy start.
