IN BRIEF: What's Happened Today? (August 21st 2012)

August 21st 2012 is unlikely to live long in most people’s memories. That’s unless you’re an Apple shareholder, of course.

For it was revealed today that Apple has now officially become not just the richest company in the world, but also the richest company the world has ever known, overtaking Microsoft’s previous record that it claimed in 1999.

It could be that Apple is in fact the richest company in the entire universe, but without any conclusive answers about the existence of extra terrestrial life we cannot be absolutely certain about that for the time being.

Here’s all the stuff that’s happened:
