    i wonder how that is measured. more people use microsoft products than apple, and yahoo cut into google business just this past quarter. i'm not saying interbrand is wrong. i can see a younger generation listing apple and google on a list of most thought of brands over ko. especially with ko basically advertising not to drink as much ko because it is bad for you.
    maybe ko should start putting the ko brand somewhere on the label of the many other products they sell. i have always thought they should

    If Coke was coKe they could have partnered with Google for advertising (instead of KitKat)
