Apple 9th in 'Best Brands'

Apple has taken the number 9 spot on Harris' "Best Brands" poll, which is based on the results of a nationwide Harris Poll of 2,372 U.S. adults surveyed online by Harris Interactive between June 5 and 11, 2007. Survey responses were unaided and a list of brand names was not presented to respondents. Microsoft ranked one spot ahead of Apple, at number 8. Other brands on the list include Ford (No. 5), Kraft Foods (No. 6), Pepsi Cola (No. 7), and Honda (No. 10). Two brands dropped out of this list this year, Hewlett Packard (was No. 7) and General Electric (No. 8). A previous brand survey from Brand Channel placed Apple as the number 2 brand behind Google but ahead of YouTube.

    this isn't news...

    2400 people out of 300 million [ -13 million illegal aliens from Mexico and Cuba] to declare what brand is "best" or not - bullshit !

    This ins't even a rant about Apple being on top or not - Don't give a s*** about that_ I just don;t agree with 2400 people dictating poll speculation when myself and 267 million other people were not asked to bee a part of the poll_

    Listen to guest, and, in particular, take a couple of classes in Statistics. Then you'll realize that, with a properly sized and picked sample, it actually does work out correctly (do you think people would be listening to polls like this if it wasn't based on some fundamental math?)

    There are reasons why, say, the census bureau wants to use statistics to determine the US population. Because they know they'd get a more accurate set of numbers then the way they do it now, which is attempting to count all 267 million people.
