Google leaps over Apple as the most valuable brand name
posted by Alan F. / May 21, 2014, 2:28 AM
Dropping to second after three years on top, is Apple. The value of the brand started all those years ago in a garage, is now worth approximately $147.9 billion. But unlike the rise in Google's name, the value of the Apple brand declined by 20%. With all of the talk about a larger-screened Apple iPhone and a Apple iWatch, neither had hit the market by the time the report was published.
Other major players in mobile that are included in the top ten include Microsoft, fourth with a brand valuation of $90.2 billion, up a healthy 29%. The value of the AT&T name rose 3% to $77.9 billion as the operator finished eighth. And at number ten is Amazon, which saw the value of its brand soar 41% to $64.3 billion.
A couple of mobile carriers show up in regional lists. In Continental Europe, T-Mobile has the second most valuable brand, while the same honor is given to China Mobile in Asia.

How do you figure this is a Google article??? Apple's name is also in the title and there are literally 5 other companies listed in the article. You fan-boys are ridiculous seriously. Not to mention they DIDN'T even say Android in the article they gave praise to Google Glass!!! You people really need to get a life. So now you have taken the stupid comment award congrats.

And you saying it is a mostly Google-Android article is any different a statement? If you wanted to negate him you should have just said this article has nothing to do with OSes, since its speaking of the companies as a whole.

ok, this isn't about iOS vs Android, this is about Apple vs Google. Right now, Google has several dozen different projects going on from Android, Chrome OS, modular smart phones with Project Ara, Their Loon project where they have weather balloons deliver internet to remote reigions of the world, Google Fiber, wearable tech with Android Wear and Google Glass, driverless cars, phones with 3D mapping of environments, they've purchased a drone manufacturer, artificial intelligence firm, Boston dynamics (Robotics), Nest thermostats and smoke detectors, not to mention the countless web properties they have like their search engine, maps, youtube, gmail, chrome, Google Drive, Docs... Google is expanding in every possible direction, where Apple has personal computers and iDevices. their product is good, but there's absolutely nothing to get excited about other then next years phone with the processor and larger screen. And the sales of those products pail in comparison to Android devices. So you may like your iPhone, but if you're excited about this years model because it has a screen size that has been the standard for Android phones for the past few years, you might be able to understand why Apple's dropped to number two on this list.
