Read more.And why?
Google for leading the curve and running away with success as a result, they really understand what people on the internet want.
Asus for making beautiful products and emerging as a more widely known name each day.
Samsung for crushing Apple in as many places as possible.
CPU: Intel i5 3570k Overclocked @ 4.6Ghz GPU: MSI Twin Frozr 7850 @ 1000Mhz Cooler: Arctic Cooling Freezer 13 RAM: 16Gb Corsair Vengeance 1600Mhz
Motherboard: Gigabyte GA Z77X-D3H
When they were still around, I really liked BFG, the graphics card company. Great warranties, great board designs (to my mind at least), and always seemed to offer that little bit extra. When they were still around, I wouldn't buy a card from any other manufacturer.
These days, probably Logitech. They always seem to be doing something interesting, and everything I've had from them has been high quality, and I've known that whatever happens, they will sort it out if it goes wrong. The G5 mouse is the oldest bit of PC tech I still use, by a huge margin, and I've got good usage out of my G110 and G510 as well. Then on top of that the Squeezeboxes, which are fantastic, their universal remotes... all brilliant gear.
Now all I need is a G710+

I would say Asus too. Great breadth of products, and a good combination of quality/reliability/price/innovation.
I like Amazon and Asus these days for offering outstanding service and products respectively. But I'll always have a spot in my heart for 3dfx and Orchid Technology for their Righteous 3D line of Voodoo graphics-based accelerator cards. If you've owned them then you already know why.
A man must have code -Bunk
#1 Google: As said before they're always No.1 by taking the next step on innovation.
#2 Nvidia/AMD: For giving us and others the neverending "green vs red" fight.
#3 Cooler Master: For their recent products. Great build quality.
IBM. Yes, they're really old, really corporate, and stuffy, and unhip, and Lotus Notes is still the spawn of Satan, and whatnot. But they also still do goddamn awesome research and development, and they're still improving our lives.
Google They're always innovating and care about their customers
Nvidia They became really good at one thing then took off running *cough* TITAN *cough*
Samsung Their mobile OS is quite good and the recent foray into the SSD market has been impressive
Corsair. Their products are very good quality and at good prices too.
It's got to be Valve nowadays, due to the amount of time I've spent playing Left 4 Dead, Counter strike and Portal. Steam, with its sales, and now being on Linux is awesome. I can forgive them for Steam from the first few years when it was awful.
I also admire ARM because they're very good at what they do, and check out https://www.google.co.uk/finance?client=ob&q=LON:ARM , can't see any other companies growing that fast.
Google and Apple used to be cool (IMO anyway).
Also Serif Software for cheap but great quality creative software.
Corsair: Great products. Mostly very attractive. Elegant. Products are reasonably priced
MSI: Same reason as Corsair. Very cheap compared to the competitions.
If I can't say IBM, then I'm going to go for Asus - major league fan of their motherboards, and I'll argue that they're the lead innovator in Android (NOT Samsung!!!!)
Choice #3 is probably Canonical.
Logitech would also be in with a shout - Unifying receiver, K800 keyboard, G series keyboards, and the new touchpad devices for Windows8.
Coalition: a system of government that adds one intellect to another and gets a half-wit as a result
I want finger extensions ... then I can play this darned guitar properly!
Canon - cameras such as the 550d,600d and so on have made it possible for almost anyone to afford kit that can produce top quality video. Not to mention they are rock solid and the 5d Mk3 is almost the perfect camera (wish I could afford one right now).
Nvidia/AMD as c0kos indicated the gpu battle. also their developments into the tablet world.
RED - cant wait for their laser 4k projectors.
Sony and MS - Console wars. how will this pan out for the next coming generation.
AMD, for surviving Intel and Nvidia combined.
