Another striking visualization from Asymco
Nobody covering high tech today is better at turning raw data into colorful, expressive visuals than the Asymco team of Horace Dediu and Dirk Schmidt. On Tuesday Schmidt marked the end of the second Steve Jobs era by graphing the market capitalizations of Apple (AAPL) and 16 of its peers from 1997 (when Jobs returned to Apple) to 2011 (when he stepped down as CEO).
For Schmidt’s analysis and a second graph showing Apple’s share of the companies’ combined market caps, click here.
NOTE: An earlier version of this piece attributed the chart and the analysis to Dediu. This work, however, appeared under Schmidt’s byline.
