Apple is Now the Worlds Most Valuable Brand

Apple has been around even before I and many of you were born, when you search for Apple in Google you more results on Apple Inc., not the Wikipedia page about the Apple fruit. The fruit results lie somewhere in 6th or 7th position. Now that’s something quite hilarious to be honest. Since Apple Computer’s, as it was known before, startup on April 1st 1976, the company has gone through many ups and downs but has still managed to be one of the top technology brands.

Apple

Now, according to a study by Millward Browns, Apple Inc has grown to be the most valuable brand in the world, overtaking Google, which had the crown for 4 years in a row. Looks like this is not Google’s year, as Apple’s products have given the company a huge boost to attain this status. Even though the Apple products such as the iPhone, iPod, iPad, MacBook, iMac and Apple TV are priced way higher than competitive brands, people are still showing more interest in Apple products. As Millward Browns director, Peter Walshe puts it;

Apple is breaking the rules in terms of its pricing model. It’s doing what luxury brands do, where the higher price the brand is, the more it seems to underpin and reinforce the desire. Obviously, it has to be allied to great products and a great experience, and Apple has nurtured that.

Apple brand value grew over 80% whereas Google’s dropped by 2%, making Apple’s value a good $153 billion and Google’s $111 billion. Below is a picture showing the Top 5 most valuable brands in the world lead by Apple.

Apple Most Valuable

For the complete list and other information please visit Millward Browns.

This is a very important news, as you can see that Apple has a huge lead over Google in terms of value. But hey, Google doesn’t make any awesome consumer products, they just run the internet, so it doesn’t really matter much to Google. The above earnings are calculated using figures from all over the world.

We can expect much more from Apple, they’ve been giving us truly spectacular and easy to use products.Hope they will keep doing that.

I am an Apple fan, are you?

Locate Your Stolen Camera Using StolenCameraFinder

When you read the title, some of you will go ‘Yeah right!’ and some will be like ‘Really? Wow’, but you won’t really know what it means unless you read the article. It sounds unrealistic, but it’s not, the application StolenCameraFinder will actually find your stolen or lost camera if it gets enough resources to look for it.

StolenCameraFinder

The StolenCameraFinder software is something out of the box as it’s not a software but rather a web based application that promises to perform a task that normal softwares won’t even try to. The web app is one very clever application that helps you find your stolen camera using previous pictures taken by it. Most cameras leave some information such as serial number, date, model of the camera etc when a picture is clicked. StolenCameraFinder uses this information, known as EXIF data, to search the internet for pictures that have been uploaded using the same camera.

Every day millions of pictures are uploaded to the internet, hence it is possible that the person who stole your camera does the same. If you’re lucky enough you might have your stolen camera in your hand soon enough.

How this web app works?

To get this working and hopefully find your stolen camera, you will have to visit the StolenCameraFinder website. Once you’re there, you’ll need to upload a photo that was previously taken using the Camera that was stolen or lost. Once uploaded, the web app searches its directory of stored serial numbers to match the ones from your picture. If a match is found, you can then report about your stolen camera and perhaps get re-united with it.

Isn’t this a very interesting web app? I mean, I would surely use this to try my luck if my camera gets stolen or I somehow manage to lose it.

What do you think of this interesting little web app? Have you ever lost or had your Camera stolen? Do you know of any other such apps?
