Apple Takes Top Rank In "Cooler" Survey

Microsoft not far behind, though

Despite the company's recent stock price problems, there is still one word that people use synonymously with Apple: "cool." According to a recent Reuters/Ipsos poll, 60% of adults aged 18 to 29 think that Apple is cooler now than it was a year ago.

That's pretty impressive, considering Apple was already regarded as just about the coolest tech company in the industry. In addition, it shows that Apple's image hasn't really been damaged too badly since the death of Steve Jobs. Sales might be another thing, but people still look to the company as a beacon of the latest tech must-haves (its only problem might be that too many people now have its gadgets).

Apple is starting to get some competition in the world of "cool," though. In the same poll, an impressive 50% of respondents felt that Microsoft is now cooler than it was last year.

The software giant has taken a very aggressive approach to appeal to the hip young tech crowd. It revamped its logo for the first time in years, it has opened its very first retail stores, and it actually entered the tablet fray with its own first-party manufactured device, Surface.

In fact, that's higher than both Twitter and Facebook. Only 42% of young adults think Facebook is cooler than it was a year ago, and only 47% feel that way about Twitter.

If you think about it, both social networks haven't done much to keep their momentum going; they have been staying at the status quo. Nothing wrong with that, but it means that people aren't seeing an increasing value with either platform.
