Google didn't knock out anybody. Google has been number one, no one else is close.

not really... u don't say let me go buy some nestle.. u don't really use mercedes benz or toyota as the go to name for cars... u do use google as a the go to name for search.. apple is just a ubiquitous name now.. and microsoft and ibm for obvious reasons... they have a lot of brand knowledge that ur examples do not. .

I find it sorta ridiculous that consumer electronic companies' brand names are worth more than the brand names of automobile\food\pharmaceutical companies. What, one would rather buy a shiny new gadget than a car, a loaf of bread or a vaccine against some disease? Besides I don't recall loafs of bread requiring tech support, or vaccinations having reception issues...

With all due respect to consumer electronic products - theses are not the cornerstones of our existence in terms of goods we consume on a daily basis.

a study a few years ago said that cell phones ranked behind "a place to live" as the #2 top priority in most people's lives. That was before android became top dog.. we live in a funny funny society.
