Apple surpassed Microsoft in market value on Wednesday, becoming the world’s most valuable technology company.

Now that Steve Jobs has won the battle of the Pirates of Silicon Valley, technology analysts expect Google to step up as Apple’s latest challenger. As the two tech giants get ready to go head-to-head, lets take a look at some other worthy adversaries.

Apple v. Chiquita Brands:

Apple versus Chiquita Brands stock values over the past five years

Apple (red) versus Chiquita Brands (blue) stock values over the past five years

Apple’s value increased more than 500% over the past five years. Chiquita’s decreased almost 60%. Crispy apple crumble wins over squishy banana cream pie.

Google v. InfoSpace:

Google versus InfoSpace stock values over the past five years

Google (blue) versus InfoSpace (red) stock values over the past five years

Google jumped more than 80% during the same time period. InfoSpace, owner of the search engine Dogpile, crapped out a decrease of 75%. The Don’t be Evilers win over dog poop.

Microsoft v. New Frontier Media:

Microsoft versus New Frontier Media stock values over the past five years

Microsoft (red) versus New Frontier Media (blue) stock values over the past five years

Microsoft dropped less than 1% while New Media Frontier, a porn video producer, went limp with a 70% fall. “I’m a PC” wins over Penthouse’s finest.

Verdict: Microsoft’s gone soft, Apple has the vision, and Google has the cash. Shit’s about to get crazy.
