Forbes names Apple world’s most valuable brand for the year, Microsoft and Google follow

Forbes today released its list of the world’s most valuable companies, putting Apple at #1 with a valuation of $124.2 billion. That total puts its worth at almost twice that of any other company on the list, including Microsoft and Google, which came in second and third place, respectively.

Forbes factored in items such as how many products Apple moved in 2014, which pushed the company’s brand value up 19% over last year’s. That Apple would top a list of most valuable brands for the year likely comes as no big surprise to most readers. The company launched two new iPhones, updated versions of both models of the iPad, a new mobile payment system, and showed off its upcoming entry to the smartwatch market.

As for the competition, Microsoft’s brand was valued at a mere $63 billion, while Google came in at $56.6 billion.

    Apple, Google, or Microsoft? Who will be our overlords? Well, it’s neither. I know what happens. I’m from the future. Apple and Google will continue to dominate, until one year, Google starts to becomes evil. Apple was evil, but Apple will fight the worse evil off as long as it can stand, but it’s not much later Apple succumbs to the worse evil as well. Microsoft will quickly fling to the top and be the nice place to store my cybernetic life in. But the good reminants of the Google and Apple’s ashes will rise. Together, along with most of Microsoft, will formed one company called Heaven. At this point, we’re plugged into the 4th dimension, hanging out in the multiverse.
