From The Magazine Editor

At the magazine, the choice to put Google at the top of our "most innovative companies" list was almost a fait accompli. No one seriously argued for any other player to head the list. Check out our various Google insights at http://www.fastcompany.com/fast50_08/index.html  Anyone want to make an argument for another No. 1 for 2007? Or does consensus reign everywhere?

    Additional medical services, such as http://www.exam-builder.com/00...000-331 exam laboratory testing, imaging diagnostics, and evaluation by specialists are also available in Bulgaria at http://www.exam-builder.com/64...642-426 exam local facilities. Usually the complete medical evaluation and treatment is done in country by the medical officers. If you become seriously ill or injured, you will be transported either to the closest http://www.exam-builder.com/64...642-566 exam regional medical facility or to the capital for emergency care and treatment.

    They do have a terrific capacity for creating lustworthy products. The Air is just so . . . appealing. It has its shortcomings--tradeoffs, really--but when our art director brought into the office his brand-new one, everyone wanted to look at it, touch it, play with it.

    Apple has had a big bump in R&D recently. They have lots of interesting patent filings in the multi-touch arena. The mouse was a revolution in human computer interface--and I think the next revolution will be with our fingers. Apple is patenting multi-touch gestures, dictionaries, surfaces (that can vibrate or create bumps for a virtual keyboard). Apple is getting us used to multitouch by first putting into the phone and now incorporating it into the new laptops touchpad. So the #2 spot may be justified.
    Although everyone talks about the iPhone, Apple is innovating on a whole variety of products. Their new Aperture 2.0 has finally allowed me to go through my 50,000+ photo library with amazing speed and ease. Their pro Application for video and audio are pretty amazing and get more sophisticated each year. The updated iTV is a much more interesting product. I'm even compelled to drop cable now that you I get free HD content or rent movies in HD.

    I think many may argue that the iPhone should give Apple the number one spot. Personally, I think Apple's #2 spot may be a bit high...
