Nintendo Declared the Top Company in the World
« on: October 06, 2009, 02:57:35 AM »
BusinessWeek says that Nintendo is now number one.

 According to BusinessWeek's annual list of the world's best companies, Nintendo is currently the number one company in the world. Some of the requirements included being a company with a strong vision of the future, aggressive expansion, strong leadership, a commitment to innovation, and diversified portfolios.    


BusinessWeek praised the company for innovating with products such as the Nintendo DS and Wii console, leading to a 36% annual increase in its sales over the last five years.  Nintendo placed ahead of tech industry giants Google (No. 2), Apple (No. 3), and Amazon (No. 17) in the overall rankings.  Sony and Microsoft did not make the top 40.    


The publication also listed what they consider to be the 50 most innovative companies in the world, with Nintendo taking the No. 5 spot behind Microsoft at No. 4.  Apple took the top spot, with Sony coming in at No. 14.  They cited Nintendo as being most well-known for its innovative products.    


Nintendo rose up the innovation ranks in 2009, moving from No. 7 to No. 5 overall.

they could have just asked us, we could have told 'em...
At some point, I'd think Nintendo fans would get sick of the anticipation and just say "screw it," but Nintendophiles are odd, odd creatures indeed.<BR>—Chris Carle, IGN

The top company in the world is a TOY MAKER.

Thus the universe is better off as a result.  Never forget this day.

If you look at the top 3 companies (Nintendo, Google, and Apple) they all have one thing in common: a focused market and they aren't a conglomerate that branches out to many different business focuses.

Nintendo maybe like that but Google and Apple are definitely spreading their resources.

To be 100% honest, I'm still not sure how Google makes so much money.
They don't sell anything. they just print and distribute money.
Everything they make, they give away for free.
Lots of things they make are usually simpler version of things other companies try to charge an arm and a leg for, and they execute it better for free(maybe not quite as feature rich, but it does what it needs to).

Look at this page. There's a link called Ads by Google. Their platform is amazing.

If you allow Google to put ads on your site, you can the generate cash from Google; the more hits, the more cash. But what's really genius is that Google will in turn send more hits your way through it's search engine. If you have a **** ton of hits, then Google bumps you up to the beloved FIRST PAGE which then allows you to get even more hits and make even more money; all of which, Google gets a massive cut of. They basically run internet advertising.

I understand they do lots of advertising placements in the internet, but they were filthy stinking rich before that. They had a search engine and their stock went public at $400+ a share then over several years they took over advertising. But how... I just don't understand.

Next they are bringing out an OS, they already have a browser.
A cell phone, an e-mail client, word processing software, image storage software, you name it they probably have some form of it and all for FREE. They are aiming to take down the software giant MS with nothing but money from searching the internet and placing adspace on as many sites as possible. It's incredible. I want to know how it was done.

Yo....the internet is way more versatile than any other form of media. If you have the best way to find information and the best way to retain revenue, your completely golden. That's why their stock is 300+. Plus, FREE isn't really free. It's all adspace.

Stogi's right.  Google's stock price is so high because they have the eyes of the world on them.  People are buying Google stock because the company has the potential to make a lot of money.  Google's current P/E ratio (the comparison of current stock price to last year's profit-per-share) is pretty bad.  But investors don't care because the potential is there for the company to absolutely blow up (in the good way) even more than they already have.  Google gives away a lot of its stuff for free because the more people look at Google the more potential they have to turn those page views into profit.
Why must all things be so bright? Why can things not appear only in hues of brown! I am so serious about this! Dull colors are the future! The next generation! I will never accept a world with such bright colors! It is far too childish! I will rage against your cheery palette with my last breath!
