[TheStreet] 10 Top Innovative Companies - Page 2

innovative huh... not really...

I like seeing Ford on that list. You have to admit, they have revamped their entire lineup over the past few years.

I expect to see Google at 1 or 2 for 2011.

Ford is the only US car company that I would call remotely stable/successful. Up until a year or two ago, GM had so many brands it couldn't work out where the profit was coming from...

Thats not completely true.
Sometimes Google will go out and buy a company for the idea they have and it takes off and becomes a big thing (android).
Other times they buy a company and let them go with the idea, and if it doesn't work out they just let it die.
And then sometimes they do there own in house innovation.

Apple isn't very innovative. They tend to come out with products that have been out for a while (MP3 players, Tablets) but they improve upon them and market them enough so that they become successful.

There were MP3 players before the iPod and Tablets before the iPad. The difference is they weren't successful. I wouldn't necessarily call that innovative but it's alright I won't lose sleep over it.

Apple's products aren't innovative, but the way they sell/market them certainly is.

It's effective, I'm not sure about innovative. They use the same tactics luxury watch/car makers use. You just need to have the "street cred" to pull it off, not many companies do.

When your product is left in a bar, completely torn down by Gizmodo, completely revealed to the world two weeks before launch, plagued with bad press over antenna problems immediately afterward and more than 14 million people still want one, that's the sign of a great marketing department.
Fixed.

Ford brought the Fiesta back. Granted they didn't bring the diesel they have in Europe. Why do they deny us 70 mpg? There are many other things they did. Surprised the crap out of me when I worked there for a bit (and they let me go just in time for Christmas a few years ago).

As for Disney, Hulu helps. They are a much broader company than you think and I can't argue with a company being called innovative that is actually gone from kids cartoons and crap to having all sorts of sectors including real video games. Then again I don't think the person/people that wrote this article know the definition of "innovative".

LMAO. Quote from article.

and "Why do we need an eReader?" as they snapped up 7.5 million iPads in six months en route to a record $20.4 billion
I'd love to be the eye care profession right about now. I wouldn't be suprised if your eyes were worthless after reading an entire book on the iPad. Also try to read it on the beach. Kindle and Nook with the e-ink will always be a better choice.

Uninformed journalist is uninformed...and probably blind right about now.
