Any of you complaining, does this even affect you?

And it makes sense that Apple would be ranked that high. Those who like Apple, love Apple, so as soon as something comes out with the Apple name on it, those who like/love it, go crazy.

Well I prefer generic, same thing or better...just costs less.

As in medicines, food, and other things. "Name Brand" is many times less quality than the generic items....but you pay out the wazoo for that "Name Brand"

Anyone else surprised to see McDonald's so high on that list? I mean yeah I know how recognizable those golden arches are, but in the circles I run with McDonald's is about the last place on earth we'll pick to eat at. Even when we decide it's going to be fast food and there is little nearby.

Not to mention up 23% from a year ago, I just don't get it.

Surpising Nike or Ford aren't there. At one time they were top. Surprised Coca-cola has hung on so well.

Kinder isn't on there?

Psh, what a terrible list.

It's at #9. And you have to consider this is a global survey. China Mobile, being in China, and having about 1.4 billion people is almost 4 times what all of the United States has.

I'm pretty sure that their spot on the list is fairly accurate.

And it doesn't surprise me about Apple's spot. When I bought my 2nd Gen iPod (a 10 gig for 400 bucks), nobody knew what it was. People were like "what the hell is that?" Two years later and damn near everyone owned one.

Their products and marketing have struck a chord with a LOT of people. Fair to say since they have a lot of really good products, and their customer service is top notch should you ever have to deal with them.
