    According to the fourth annual BrandZ top 100 global brands ranking, Google is now worth 25% more than Microsoft and is the first company to surpass the $100 billion value mark.

    Microsoft is number two at $76.2 bn, and Coca-Cola enters the top three for the first time at $67.6 bn.

    Microsoft are increasingly the brand everyone loves to hate. I guess it's the bad PR because of Bill Gates's anti-competitive practices.

    Despite that, Microsoft has transformed the lives of pretty much everyone. Google is just a really good search.

    I'm just disturbed that McDonalds and Marlboro are in the top ten.

    Google has become a lot more than just the perfect search engine.

    Google Advertising Program AdSense and AdWords its what made Google number one brand in the world. Google search engine its what gave them the basics to start build upon.

    Google Analytics its one of the best services of its kind..on the web, and its the best you can find for FREE.

    Google Mail (Gmail) has become one of the best email services and also the safest.

    Google Picasa its a great photo aplication.

    Blogger its the best blog service outhere.

    Google Maps and Google Earth are also pioneer aplictions, which have become best world wide in their field.

    These are just a few of the best known google aplications and software outhere icon_smile.gif

    It's not that Google aren't good, it's just that Microsoft has revolutionised the way we live.

    Give it some time. Google will be the one to hate soon enough.

    Google definitely has some great products. Unfortunately, they're very invasive and lack privacy, and restrictive on user development (IP issues). I negotiate software deals for my (behemoth) company and they're just too hard to work with and we can't get past our security concerns with most of their products.

    Google will always be a big player, but I think everyone is too busy hating microsoft to realise how much they've changed the world.

    When did those other brands ever change the world?

    It's a common preception that these brands are currently over-valued in terms of percentage value of the company as a whole


    I have a particular dispassion for microsoft...no one should be able to turn out such crap products and expect a god given market dominance...their empire will fall
