A market research firm called YouGov Brand Index has come up with a top-10 list of brands listed according to how loved and satisfied they are by their consumers. The list is interesting…

  2. Amazon – I recently discovered Amazon and love it.
  3. History Channel – I watch Pawn Stars and Chumlee is an inspiration. ‘Nuff said.
  4. Google – Google+ is meh, but I still search on Google multiple times every day.
  5. Cheerios – Honey Nut Cheerios are da bomb.
  6. Lowe’s – I’m not much of a Mr. Fix-It, buy I’d rather go to Lowe’s instead of Home Depot.
  7. Ford – Strong, quality vehicles with cool new features make Ford a no-brainer. My 1st new car will be a Ford.
  8. Discovery Channel – Bored? Discovery Channel to the rescue! Cash Cab or Mythbusters anyone?
  9. Target – Red is my favorite color. Their stores have Starbucks in them.
  10. Apple – iPhone, iMac, iPod, iPad … user friendliness ftw!
