What so big fuzz about this? There is nothing special in this. Next year apple will go down another 100 places. They have been in this position by copying other mobile companies especially Samsung. Now they are unable to copy much. There is a limit in everything.

Proctor Gamble, Colgate Palmolive higher than Google? The list must be based on innovative offshore tax dodges.

Think how microshit's doing! Microcalypse because they struggle like you to reach the top like your ads only comparing your pointeless feature crap, you're number 200 just you wait someone who thought of flat squares and colors for windorks 8, do you even tell what other companies on the list are, it depends on something other than pointeless craplets and fuckias like yours, it involves flat screens, air conditioners, windmills! Did you ever read microsuck on the innovative list? No, then suck it! Androcalypse and Microcalypse all the way, you don't even have hd and what's the fucking point of 2 apps at the same time, and do your cases clean rt and have better battery, no! I rest my case! Like yours was easy! Get lost wannabe!
