Poll: Google is the most beloved tech firm in the U.S.
posted by Alan F. / Jun 08, 2013, 6:51 PM
Apple trailed Google with 72% responding favorably to the iPhone and iPad manufacturer, followed by the 60% that gave Facebook a favorable rating. The numbers are extremely similar to last year's ratings when Google received a favorable rating from 82% of respondents, followed by Apple's 74% favorable rating and the 58% scored by Facebook. The poll results have a 3.5 percentage point margin of error and were conducted from May 29th through June 2nd with 1007 adults surveyed.
Google scored highly among all demographic groups, although those over 65 years old gave the company only a 64% favorable rating. And Apple seems to be losing its cool factor. Last year, 81% of those under 30 years old gave Apple a favorable rating. This year, that number was down to 71%. And something like that is not going to be addressed by releasing a smartwatch.

"Lol apple losing its cool factor!" Apple already have lost its cool a few years ago. P.S. Google for "lost its cool" and look at all search result titles, you will see Apple name almost in all results. ;)

They have a lot of really good products so I could see that happening. Can't think of any other companies whose name is now used as a verb for the service it provides... "Google it!" Wait, People do say you can "TiVo" a show.

i still don't get y ppl say apple "the iphone or ipad maker or manufacturer " that is a false statement . apple doesn't built sh*t. they're like a spoiled white little girl with a credit card. lg, samsung, sony, r manufacturers.. apple has 1 building where they design on napkins in which a lot of those designs r stolen from other real manufacturers anyways.

I am not convinced since google does a lot of questionable things that seem to go unnoticed.

Amazing when you think where Google started...a lil ole search engine.... Apple....maybe its time to ease up off the lawsuits and redesign iOS. It hasnt really hurt OS X. Dont be scared Apple, yall need something more than an extra row of icons. Yall took a chance with the orig iPhone and it paid off, dont be scared to do it again.
