    JNJ? Really? Their weekly recalls didn't affect this any?

    There is a notable dearth of financial services companies / banks in the Top 50....Anyone surprised?

    Agree, JNJ? I guess not too many returned recalled products.
    Interesting that Apple is way down the list at 46.

    I must say, I have bought everything from brakes for my car to music cds, oatmeal, you name it, from Amazon, and I have never had a complaint, except it's too to hit the click and buy button.

    Where is Apple? At least it's not among the top 10.

    In recent years JNJ has had serious quality control issues with their over-the-counter drug manufacturing and google has had issues with lobbying government for pro-google internet rules.

    Amazon is great! The exact opposite of EBay which is buyer beware.

    Free shipping. People get addicted to the sight of a box with the Amazon smile sitting on their stoop as they pull up the driveway.

    Surprised Apple is not much higher, considering JNJ has had so many recalls. I'd trust swallowing my iPhone rather than a JNJ pill these days LOL

    Why would you even think about TAKING a JNJ pill?

    Popular perception (sound bites, or what I call Knowledge Lite) and informed reflection (a result of reading and some actual thought) are two very different things. Every politician who ever made a campaign promise knows this. I'm surprised this lot is surprised.
