Apple's brand moving up the ranks

The Mac maker captures the 20th spot in market research company Interbrand's Best Global Brands list, up four spots since 2008.

Apple's brand is getting stronger, according to the 2009 Best Global Brands list released on Thursday by market research firm Interbrand.

Calling Apple "among the most iconic of relatively young brands in the world," Interbrand moved it up four spots since its 2008 evaluation of the world's top 100 brands, from No. 24 to No. 20.

While many of the companies stayed near last year's ranking, the top five brands in the world did not move at all from 2008's report: Coca-Cola, IBM, Microsoft, General Electric, and Nokia.
