Survey names Apple as the second coolest brand in the UK
Although Apple finished behind Aston Martin, they still are viewed as the coolest technology brand throughout the UK. Finishing behind Apple in the technology category was BlackBerry, who finished sixth overall in the top 20 cool brands. Another technology brand known as Bang & Olufsen just edged out BlackBerry for a place in the top 5.
There were other cell phone manufacturers such as Samsung and HTC that were also subject to the CoolBrands survey, but neither of them was able to gain enough votes to push them into the top 20. For a full list of the top 20 cool brands in the UK as determined by the survey then hit the link and tell us what you think.

"Dr. Who" is cooler than Apple in the UK.
That's just my two cents.

Hey corporateJP, Dr. Who is very cool! Thumbs up for you!
To me Waste Management (WM) is a cooler company than Apple. I imagine if there weren't any garbage men in the U.S. we would all live in sh*t. lol Waste Management is something we need, depend on. Apple not so much, then again that might be a different story to the typical iSheep though. Some iSheep like that fool in the UK who is camping out & living like a hobo in front of an Apple store for the new iPhone, might see the iPhone as a necessity though. lol

This seems like a well thought out posts. Garbage companies have huge brand recognition throughout the world. Wait a minute THEY DON'T.
Apple is popular, people love it, they make great products.
Get over it.

its not because apple makes great products, Its becauese their products are expensive.
samsung and htc didnt make their way to top 20 coz they make their devices affordable for every one.
you know peaple think whats unreachable, is cool. Its after they manage to buy iphone ( or any other apple device ) that they find out its not that cool. well, beside from those who never had anything real and fall in love with their idevice the first night...

Hmm that's interesting because iPhone has the highest retention and customer satisfaction rates. Studies seem to fly in the face of what you're saying.

taco50 I love how I can make a comment & you are right there to let me have it. I was trying to be funny but thank you for your lesson I will never forget it! lol I guess what I was trying to say is that actual garbage is more important than fancy garbage like the iPhone 4! lol

35. SuperAndroidEvo (Posts: 4747; Member since: 15 Apr 2011)
nincompoop is from the Looney Tunes, Porky, Daffy say it a lot, it was very funny! I was quoting Foghorn Leghorn when he was trying to tell the chicken hawk that the dog is the chicken. lol That was a funny cartoon!
Dude I got 110 full length Looney Tunes cartoons on my HTC Evo 3D. I got like over 60 Bugs Bunny cartoons, & everything from the Road Runner, Porky, Daffy, Pepe, Speedy, & even the classic black & white WW2 cartoons. It's sweet. As a child those were the cartoons I grew up with from my earliest age to about 6 years old I also liked the Yogi Bear, Huckleberry Hound, Snaggle Puss, Hong Kong Phooey, Underdog, Woody Wood Pecker, Droopy, & Chilly Willie. Then I got into He-Man, Thundercats, Heathcliff, Silver Hawks, GI Joe, Transformers, GO Bots, & Voltron. Yes as a kid I had all those action figures!

It's interesting how Google wasn't even mentioned in the article, while they place 7th overall...
26. dacastrator (Posts: 232; Member since: 22 Sep 2011)
Why can't Apple mess directly with Google? Because they are afraid of loosing a lot of Google services like the Maps, YouTube etc..

"This is a discussion for a news." Huh? This reads like it was written for a simpleton. Oh wait it's an Apple news article. Fits with that demographic just fine.
