This week’s poll question is: Which Major Company Is The Best Of 2011?


2011 is over, and it’s time to think back on everything that’s happened.

So taking all this into account, which is your favorite company of 2011? Who made the greatest progress? Who launched the best products? It’s time for you to choose!

Explain in the comments why you chose the company you did. Further more, if you chose “none of the above”, which do you think should be the best company of 2011?

    By good I would a company that gives as much as it takes...all companies are in it for the money; Google for me seems to me to offer so much more "free" services that any others...okay I accept they make money from the consumer, these ads are harmless. Privacy?? well lets hope the anti-googlers are wrong eh?

    I voted for Apple. They have been consistently innovative over the years and have raised the bar for others to follow. My close second choice would be Google, followed by Amazon. These are my "top 3" tech giants who I believe will continue to have significant leverage in a dynamic marketplace.

      Thanks Dave! I think Amazon had a pretty good year too, especially if you live in the US. :)

    Totally expected Google to be #1 here, but I'm surprised by Apple being #2. I thought Amazon would be there instead.

      Yep, so far Apple is leading over Amazon by far. I'm curious to see how it shapes out.
