    Default Apple Deemed World's 8th Most Valuable Brand


    On Monday, Bloomberg reported that Apple's brand value has increased exponentially during the last twelve months.

    According to the top 100 global brands ranked in Interbrand’s Best Global Brands 2011 report (which excludes privately held brands), Apple was the eighth most valuable brand in the world last year.

    It should be noted that Apple claimed the No. 17 spot in 2010.

    For 2011, however, Apple's brand (estimated to be worth in excess of $33 billion) was bigger than numerous industry giants, including Disney and Budweiser. Microsoft still remains substantially ahead of Apple at No. 3. with a brand value of $59.1 billion.

    Once again, Coca-Cola took top honors in the report with an estimated brand value of $71.86 billion.

    wholly cow!!!! 58% increase from last year and apple is still complaining about not making enough money by going after jailbreakers......talking about greed!

    Sony and Nintendo on the other hand are hurting really bad. I would be shocked if those companies folded specially Sony. Sony is going to get bought if they keep on loosing this bad. I admire psp's vita specs and all but who really wants to play with that thing when you have the iphone or the galaxy 2s around, specially with games costing less than $1. I truly think that dedicated portable gaming is a dead market. The next iphone with the bigger screen(hopefully) and quad core cpu and quad gpu is going to destroy the dedicated portable gaming market. The only advantage the psp has over the high end smartphones is the controls for gaming.

    Why would you be shocked? Nintendo is still selling to a market that is shrinking at a rapid pace. Sony's movie industry is hurting. Both are destined for failure, because they cannot adapt to new and changing markets.

    stereo speakers at the bottom and have a dual mic(stereo recording) relocated somewhere else
    use a new kind of lithium ion polymer battery with twice the capacity
    3g/4g lte
    12mp camera with larger optics zeis lens and night shot/ 1080p video rec

    I'm surprised by a good margin of that list.

    Anyone else notice the 5.0.1 jailbreak already in there. Good on you Corona!

    Plus sidewinder missiles
    Metal cutting lasers
    Intergalactic communication modular

    Oh and not forgetting to make it transform into a Bugatti

    Hope I'm not asking to much ;0)

    4.5" SAMOLED 1080P retina clearly you have no working definition of retina and 1080p
    2gb dd3 ram Also no working definition of ram
    16,32,64 gb with micro sd slot this could potentially work, but apple thinks we don't need removable storage on their phones
    A6 quad core @ 1ghz Overkill IMHO, but could happen
    quad core gpu Did you already forget you posted that above?
    stereo speakers at the bottom and have a dual mic(stereo recording) relocated somewhere else could happen, but I am sure most wouldnt even notice
    use a new kind of lithium ion polymer battery with twice the capacity Sorta needs to be invented first. If pigs could fly... I;d eat pig wings. I love ribs and chicken wings. Imagine how the two together would tase
    3g/4g lte Probably the most realistic item on your list
    12mp camera with larger optics zeis lens and night shot/ 1080p video rec
    dual led flash/ with 1 infrared led for nighshot illumination. We aren't all porn photographers.

    am I asking too much????
    You are basicall asking for the moon and stars. Most of the stuff we wouldn't need. Most of the stuff would make productions costs sky high and I doubt it would have enough of a bearing on the general populous to boost sales. You listed a bunch of specs. The average iPhone owner doesn't even know what speed their processor is and why.

    I once prayed to God for an iPhone, but quickly found out He didn't work that way...so I stole an iPhone and prayed for His forgiveness.
