Something appears to be amiss in the numbers--INTC market cap is not larger than MSFT. It looks like the post-split number of shares for INTC was used with the pre-split price. I ran the numbers again using all pre-split numbers--If my calculations are correct INTC would look something like this:

INTC 1,657,500,000 $118.25 195,999,375,000 312,500,000 $18.13 16%

This of course assumes that the options were not adjusted for the split in the original calculations. This number also makes more sense because it falls in line with the percentages of the other "techno" companies I haven't had the chance to check any of the other numbers--the market cap was an easy catch. (Sorry if this was already identified--I haven't had the time to keep up, but I did check for follow-ups to Elann's post)
