I'm a bit surprised Apple is not on the list.

I thought the exact same thing, but when you think of it, apple uses mostly supplied parts (screens from samsung, processors, just recently A4? they started tweaking samsungs processors, might be mistaken though)

Why? What was the last thing they invented or radically changed? Even Jobs himself was fond of the "great artists steal" comment...

 

Doesn't take a lot of R&D to put a plastic case on a phone that has hardware that looked cool in 2010.

Heh, I see the company I work for in that list. Although they appear to have dropped quite a bit compared to last year. In fact, looking at the trend across the years I think I can see why. :laugh:

PRetty much my response, they just gather technologies, slap them onto a metal container (phone) and slap their proprietary software and make millions :P

Again, makes  you wonder why they're not on that list.

Er...because Sony, in 20th, spent way more than $4b?

Apple spends on marketing, not R&D.

 

You don't need to develop anything new when you can just convince people the same old stuff from four years ago is something new and revolutionary.
