The Top Ten
1 Apple Apple Inc. is a global technology company that specializes in consumer electronics, software, and services. Known for its innovative products such as the iPhone, iPad, and Mac computers, it is one of the world's most valuable companies.

Apple is the best. They pioneered a lot of things that are now standards. Take iPods, for example. Apple didn't invent music players, but they made them really popular. Or iPhones: the latest phones before the iPhone were BlackBerrys and Nokias, which are pretty outdated these days.

When Apple released the iPhone, people bought it in droves. It was so popular that everyone else started making phones similar to Apple's. Without modern phones, we wouldn't have a lot of features, like mobile VPN services.

Fun fact: Apple made their first computer around 10 years before Microsoft made their first computer, if you count LisaOS.

2 Google Google LLC operates as a multinational technology company that excels in Internet-related services and products. Its core offerings include search engine services, cloud computing, online advertising technologies, and hardware, making it a leading player in the tech industry.

Really creative, innovative, and open source. They took their business and work style to another level.

Google is like the Disney of animated movies.

I think Google should be number one on this list.

3 Microsoft Microsoft Corporation is a technology company with a broad range of products and services including operating systems, office software, and cloud computing solutions. Its flagship products, Windows and Office, have become standards in personal and professional computing environments.

There is no computer ever to have existed that has not had a Microsoft operating system on it, basically Windows. Everything just works all the time. The rival, Apple, has had no such luck, though the reason remains an enigma. From Windows 95 to Windows 10, I like them all.

They have the best computers. I had a MacBook Pro, and it lagged and messed up. It was a bad PC. I got a Windows 10 computer when I was 12, and it was perfect for a PC. My aunt works for Microsoft in Irvine, California, and she gave me an Xbox One. Xbox is good.

They made PCs, the Zune, and not to forget the best console of all time, the Xbox 360. Too bad Nintendo and Sony will never get close to what the greatest company of all time achieved.

4 Coca-Cola The Coca-Cola Company is a multinational beverage corporation incorporated under Delaware's General Corporation Law and headquartered in Atlanta, Georgia. Best known for its flagship product Coca-Cola, the company offers over 500 brands in more than 200 countries and territories.

People seem to forget that Coca-Cola is the reason why we have the classic Santa Claus image: the plump, jolly old man with the big white beard. There are few brands that have had such a huge cultural impact the way Coca-Cola has.

I'd have to say, sitting on the couch with an iPod or iPad wouldn't be the same without a Coke.

Everywhere, in every country, there's Coca-Cola.

5 Sony Sony Corporation is a Japanese multinational conglomerate corporation that operates in diverse sectors, including electronics, gaming, entertainment, and financial services. Its PlayStation brand is among the leading gaming consoles globally, and its electronics segment is renowned for quality and innovation.

Best televisions, decent phones, decent gaming consoles, decent laptops.

Class and quality, so I am well pleased with my Sony products.

6 Samsung Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd. is a South Korean multinational electronics corporation that specializes in a wide range of consumer and industry electronics, including appliances, digital media devices, semiconductors, memory chips, and integrated systems. It has become a major player in the global electronics market, noted for its innovation and product development.

The best. Much better than other electronics companies.

7 Disney The Walt Disney Company is an American diversified multinational mass media and entertainment conglomerate headquartered at the Walt Disney Studios complex in Burbank, California. Disney is famous for its influence in the field of entertainment during the 20th century, with its creation of some of the world's most famous film productions and theme parks.

Come on! This should be in the top three! They have Pixar, Marvel, Star Wars, Fox, Disney+, Disney World, Disneyland, Aulani Beach Resort, Disney Cruise, Shop Disney, Disney Travel, Disney Paris, Tokyo Disney, Hong Kong Disney, and Shanghai Disney. Is there anything else Disney needs?

Some of their stuff is so overpriced that it's truly ridiculous! However, most of the children's movies and shows are very loved, so Disney deserves some respect for that.

Such an amazing company. Walt Disney is so interesting, and this company is a good role model for all companies.

8 Nintendo Nintendo Co., Ltd. is a Japanese multinational consumer electronics and video game company. Renowned for creating some of the most iconic video game franchises, such as Mario, The Legend of Zelda, and Pokémon, Nintendo continues to innovate in the gaming industry with consoles like the Switch.

Nintendo is awesome. They make great video games like Super Mario Bros, The Legend of Zelda, Metroid, Kirby, Star Fox, Pokemon, Fire Emblem, Animal Crossing, and Super Smash Bros, among others. They all have great plots and characters that are very memorable. Don't forget some of the awesome Nintendo music. Once you hear it, it'll stay in your head.

Nintendo saved the entire gaming industry and has made more absolutely incredible video games than any other company. They've brought everyone around the world so many fond memories and joy and are absolutely one of the best companies of all time!

9 Amazon, Inc. is an American multinational technology company which focuses on e-commerce, cloud computing, digital streaming, and artificial intelligence. It is considered one of the Big Four technology companies, significantly influencing retail, entertainment, and technology sectors worldwide.

Number 34, come on, people. Amazon is awesome! They offer exactly what you want at a cheaper price than other stores. It's also like eBay, where you can sell your own stuff. They are also nice to their employees, paying their warehouse workers $12 an hour, which is much better than other companies. I'm looking at you, Walmart!

This should be number 1! 1. It's better than Google, Apple, Coca-Cola, Microsoft, McDonald's, Dell, and you get the idea. 2. It has produced more things than Apple.

This should be way higher. While all these companies manufacture products, Amazon not only sells them but also makes their own.

10 Marvel Marvel Entertainment, LLC, a wholly-owned subsidiary of The Walt Disney Company, is known for its vast universe of superheroes such as Spider-Man, the X-Men, and the Avengers. Through comic books, movies, TV shows, and merchandise, Marvel continues to expand its legacy and influence in pop culture.

12 The Lego Group The LEGO Group is a Danish toy production company known for its manufacture of LEGO-brand toys, consisting mostly of interlocking plastic bricks. The company has grown to become one of the leading manufacturers of toys for children, inspiring creativity through play.

Seriously, who can put down Lego? They come out with the best toys, and my boys would definitely agree because it's on their Christmas and birthday lists every year!

Lego is hard not to like! And although I wouldn't say it's the best, it is much better than Sony, Microsoft, and Apple!

Of course! I am an avid LEGO collector and have over $15,000 worth of LEGO. The money is worth it!

13 Toyota Toyota Motor Corporation is a Japanese multinational automotive manufacturer headquartered in Toyota City, Aichi, Japan. It was founded by Kiichiro Toyoda in 1937 and has become one of the largest automobile manufacturers in the world, known for its innovation and reliability in the automotive industry.

17 Sega Sega Corporation is a Japanese multinational video game developer and publisher headquartered in Tokyo, Japan. The company is known for its console systems, such as the Genesis, as well as for games like Sonic the Hedgehog, and has played a significant role in the development of the video game industry.

In my opinion, Sega is Nintendo done right.

19 Nerf Nerf or Nothing, a slogan of Hasbro's Nerf brand, refers to the line of foam-based weaponry and sports toys, which are marketed towards both children and adults. Since its inception, Nerf has expanded its product range to include blasters, archery sets, and sports balls, promoting active play.

The company produces great guns, and no safety equipment is needed.

20 Mojang Mojang Studios is a Swedish video game developer and a studio of Xbox Game Studios based in Stockholm. Mojang is best known for creating Minecraft, the best-selling video game of all time, leading the studio to be a notable name in the gaming industry.

It brought back retro graphics and taught people that gameplay is better than graphics.

23 IBM International Business Machines Corporation, better known as IBM, is an American multinational technology and consulting company. IBM is known for its computer hardware, middleware, and software, and provides hosting and consulting services in areas ranging from mainframe computers to nanotechnology.

The best technology company in US history. The US government has continually tried to destroy it, almost succeeding. Yet, they rely on it daily to manage the country.

24 BMW Bayerische Motoren Werke AG, commonly referred to as BMW, is a German multinational corporation which produces luxury vehicles and motorcycles. The company was founded in 1916 and has established itself as a symbol of quality and innovation in the automotive industry.

Many have disliked them recently due to their habit of frequent changes, but that speaks volumes about their view on innovation. They always produce exciting cars. Although they may not be at the top of their class, the popularity of this company speaks for itself. Everyone knows what a BMW is.

This company has created some of the most secure, efficient, and sporty cars, planes, and all sorts of great transport in the world.

If you can't buy a Mercedes, go for a BMW.
