After a 3-year run as the world's most valuable brand, Apple was supplanted last year by Google, but this year it came back with a vengeance to reclaim the #1 spot, leaving Google trailing in its dust.

7 of the top 8 brands are companies that sell primarily services, mostly in tech and comm. The highest-rated brand that sells mainly a physical product is Coca-Cola, at #8.
