To no one's surprise - Apple was named by Forbes as the most valuable brand in their powerful brand list.
The bigger surprise is that Google as a brand is #2 and Facebook #5. It states that the Google brand is worth 82.5 Billion and Facebook 52.6 Billion. Do people really go, oh it's made by Google or done by Facebook, I can trust it, it's quality? I find this list to be a bit off, with Sony languishing in #76 coming in 24 spots below....wait for it...eBay at #52. Strange list.
