Business magazine Fortune has released the 2013 edition
of its list of the 500 biggest corporations in the US. One of the most significant shifts in the list is the ascendancy
of Apple, which has jumped from 17th place to sixth, breaking into the top 10 for the first time. Fortune comments that while the company has "maintained more than disrupted" its product line, and even had to apologize for iOS 6 Maps and its Chinese warranty services, it "remains an innovation icon."
