California just beat Texas by one business measure.
That measure? Most valuable company in America.
In trading Tuesday, the value of Apple -- the California technology company -- surpassed that of the previous #1, Exxon Mobil, the Texas oil giant.
The markets now value Apple at $338 billion, and Exxon Mobil at $337 billion, according to the Associated Press.
This could change as soon as, well, Wednesday. So Californians should celebrate while they can.
