The following video is part of our "Motley Fool Conversations" series, in which technology and media editor/analyst Andrew Tonner and consumer-goods editor and analyst Austin Smith discuss topics around the investing world.

The rise of Apple has been one of most documented, marveled, and widely watched stories in technology over the past five years. The company's swath of iDevices continue to further ingrain themselves in consumer's hearts and minds, which of course has driven Apple's stock to insane heights. Recently, the company, currently the largest public company in the world, eclipsed a market capitalization of $600 billion. Is this a sign of things to come or an unsustainable high point? See what our technology analyst has to say.
