Written by


Outpaces Google
According to a report published by WPP Plc on Monday, Apple has become the world’s most valuable brand, with an estimated value of $153.3 billion.

After a four-year lead Goggle dropped to second place, with an estimated $111.5 billion brand value. The fruity toy makers is also ahead of stroke-inducing McDonalnds, which ranked third. It is also worth noting that Apple surpassed Microsoft as the world’s most valuable tech company back in May 2010.

In addition to Apple, several relative newcomers have also done well in the brand value department. Facebook saw a 246 percent climb in brand value, ending up 35th in the rankings, at $19.1 billion. Baidu also jumped to 29th place with an estimated brand value of $22.6.

Interestingly, Amazon.com managed to overtake Wal-Mart for the 14th spot, making the e-commerce giant the world’s most valuable retail brand.

Nooooo... what has happened with you people? You need to read 1984, and watch Network, and perhaps look @ Apple back in 1983! Where have your morals and ethics gone?

Aside from phones, tabs, and some lappies/deskies... what more do they offer? Compared to so many other companies?

Baaah!

For the price of a £1000 iMac I could put together the same spec system with all peripherals, monitors, case, Windows 7 OS etc, costing only around £514, tell me where the extra £486 goes
