The milestone reached Thursday marks the latest triumph of a trend-setting company that two mavericks named Steve started in a Silicon Valley garage 42 years ago.To survive, Apple brought back its once-exiled co-founder Steve Jobs as interim CEO and turned to its archrival Microsoft for a $150 million cash infusion to help pay its bills.Jobs eventually introduced popular products such as the iPod and iPhone that subsequently drove Apple's rise.Another company, Saudi Arabian Oil Co., could eclipse Apple if it goes through with plans for an initial public offering.Cook's hiring may have been one of the best things Jobs did for Apple.Although Apple has yet to produce another mass-market sensation since that changing of the guard, Cook has leveraged the legacy that Jobs left behind to stunning heights.Cook has capitalized on the continuing popularity of the iPhone and other products invented under Jobs' reign to sell services tailored for the more than 1.3 billion devices now powered by the company's software.
