Google has been officially announced as ahead of Apple according to a new survey. Google’s investments and inventions like self – driving cars, Google glass, and new android apps have led to astronomical profits. Google is also designing new smart watches, which will bring in even more bucks.
Apple’s brand value fell by 20pc in the past year to just under $148bn, conceding the spot it held for three years to Google, whose value increased by 40pc to $159bn, according to Millward Brown’s BrandZ Top 100 Most Valuable Global Brands ranking.
Technology brands are taking over the top position with the fastest growth in brand and value. Several other top businesses are bringing in high profits, too. Look at Facebook, and Twitter, for example.
Facebook’s brand value rose 68pc to around $36bn, putting it 21st in the rankings, while Chinese Internet portal Tencent is now worth just over $53bn
New entries to the ranking include Twitter, worth $14bn and LinkedIn, with a value of $12bn. They were ranked 71st and 78th respectively.
It is surprising to hear that Google has surpassed Apple as the top leader. People have always looked up to Apple as the world super power of technology, but it seems that’s changing rapidly.
