Google voted favourite tech brand, ahead of Apple and Microsoft

The ThinkDigit Weekly Poll recently asked readers to pick their favourite of the three biggest personal technology companies in the world – Apple, Google and Microsoft.

Over 2,522 readers ThinkDigit readers, subscribers and fans have responded, and the results are in – of the three, Google is the people’s choice, with more votes than the other two combined, and more than twice the votes Apple and Microsoft each garnered.

There are a lot of tech brands out there, and we decided to limit our choices to the three largest companies that were popular with end users. There are a lot of factors that make one company appeal more than the other, and of course, the result does not necessarily imply the voters felt one company makes better products  - but it does mean it is perceived as the better company by end users in the Indian market.

Google’s logo informal corporate motto "Don't be evil," might just have a hand in this, we feel – after all, the market still remains polarized between Apple and Microsoft – with Google occupying the happy medium. The search giant's  roots (and large portion of its products) are also free services, further distancing it from the money-hungry image some readers have of Apple and Microsoft.

Of the 2,522 votes – Google got 1,334, or 53%. Apple got 638 votes, or 25% of the votes, while Microsoft received 550 votes, or 22%.
