Don’t trust Forbes, they’re well and truly wedged up Apple’s arse. and again, Value is different depending on who you ask. For profits, of course it is apple, they’re a brand, their job is to sell their products. Google however, A LOT of people depend on Google for so many things. The world would lose a lot more if we lost Google, than if we lost Apple.

Except you don’t judge a brand just by how much profit it makes because let’s say apple has always charged a lot more in the past for an iPhone then what Samsung has charged for a Samsung flagship in the past it’s only recently that the prices I’ve gone up to nearly the same level that is why you can’t judge a brand by its profits he should really be judged by how many units is sold because that then he says how popular brand is. Just my opinion.
