    Thumbs up Apple fourth on BusinessWeek's Info Tech 100
    To compile the Information Technology 100, BusinessWeek began with financial data from Standard & Poor's, a division of The McGraw-Hill Companies that has computerized information on 10,000 publicly traded corporations. We trimmed this universe to information technology companies and then added non-U.S. tech companies recommended by our network of foreign bureaus. To qualify, companies had to have revenues of at least $500 million. We divided this collection of about 500 companies into eight industry categories, such as software and semiconductors. Companies whose stock price has dropped more than 75%, whose sales shrank, or where other developments raised questions about future performance, were eliminated from contention. We also dropped some phone companies whose monopoly or near-monopoly power in their countries gives them an unfair advantage over competitors. The remaining group of companies was ranked on four criteria: return on equity, shareholder return and revenue growth (which were given equal weight), and total revenues (which was weighted). Then, the top 100 companies were reranked as a group. Click on company names for more information.

    Sounds good... Microsoft is pretty far down there These lists mean nothing to me, however. Apple was one of my favorite companies before this came out

    When I said that I meant that it was and still is one of my favorite companies; the list didn't sway that.
