Apple tanks in new reputation survey, drops from 5th to 29th

How Complete Beginners are using an ‘Untapped’ Google Network to create Passive Income ON DEMAND

Apple reputation survey

Through thick and thin, Apple has maintained a good standing with customers for years, but based on the results of a recent survey, the most profitable company in the world’s reputation may be slipping. On Tuesday, Reuters noted that Apple dropped from 5th place all the way down to 29th in the most recent edition of the annual Harris Poll Reputation Quotient poll. Apple ranked as highly as second place just two years ago, making this a precipitous fall.

As Reuters explained, the poll has been conducted every year since 1999, and this year surveyed over 25,000 adults from December 11th to January 12th on the reputations of the “most visible” companies in the world.

Apple wasn’t the only major tech brand to take a spill, either. Google, which ranked 8th in 2017, dropped all the way to 28th, just one spot above Apple. John Gerzema, CEO of the Harris Poll, told Reuters that the most likely reason for the collapse was because neither are introducing groundbreaking devices at the rate they used to.

“Google and Apple, at this moment, are sort of in valleys,” Gerzema said to Reuters. “We’re not quite to self-driving cars yet. We’re not yet seeing all the things in artificial intelligence they’re going to do.”

But while Apple and Google floundered, other tech giants have managed to improve their reputations or hold steady near the top of the chart. Amazon, for example, is once again on top after taking the crown four of the previous five years. Tesla jumped up from the nine spot all the way to number three as well (thanks in no small part to all of the rocket launches), while even Facebook managed to climb out of the gutter to a respectable 51st.

Nokia’s retro 3310 3G is coming to the US for $60 on October 29th

The 3G version of Nokia’s resurrected 3310 was announced in September as theoretically working in the US, unlike the 2G version released earlier this year. But at the time HMD Global, which owns the rights to Nokia phones, didn’t say when (or even if) the 3310 3G would be coming to the US.

Now, we know the answer to both of those questions: the phone is available for preorder starting today at Best Buy for $ 59.99, with the phone set to release on October 29th. If you’re thinking about picking one up, be aware that it should work on AT&T and T-Mobile because both are GSM networks, but it won’t work with Verizon and Sprint’s CDMA ones.

‘Super Mario Run’ Getting Brand New World, New Playable Character, and 50% Off Sale on September 29th

Apple is using the revamped App Store in iOS 11 with its added emphasis on curation and editorial to bring us news of a substantial update for Super Mario Run [Free] that’s set to hit next week. First up is a new mode called Remix 10 which takes 10 bite-sized chunks from the existing levels in the game and has you play through them in quick succession. There are also rainbow medals spread throughout for you to collect, and it sounds like it’ll be a different experience each time you play the new mode. There’s no failing this mode, if you don’t make it through a level you’ll just move onto the next one, but playing well and collecting the medals will allow you an opportunity to earn new items for your Mushroom Kingdom, culminating the the grand prize of a brand new character: Daisy. Once you’ve unlocked Daisy through Remix 10 mode, she’ll be playable in the rest of the game, and comes with a new double jump move that should give players a whole new way to play through the game.

The next significant addition to Super Mario Run is an entirely new world called World Star filled with 9 new levels to play through. The new world unlocks once you’ve completed the existing six worlds, and Nintendo says that these new levels are “filled with new enemies, cool gameplay mechanics, and of course include pink, purple, and black coin-collecting challenges.” They’re also promising “surprises for even the most seasoned Super Mario Run players” in the new World Star world. Finally, this update will give players the option to listen to their own music while playing the game, which is a welcome addition, and in a little visual flourish whatever character you’re playing as will be rocking a set of headphones when you do. Cute idea! The big Super Mario Run update is scheduled to hit on September 29th, and going against what Nintendo has stated in the past, the full game unlock IAP will be half-price for two weeks following the arrival of the update.
