I guess I'm not really that surprised that Coca Cola is #1. Generic pop just doesn't match up; plus now that Coke has MyCokeRewards and is global, they're pretty much cleaning up in the financial market.

IBM? interesting considering most people have no idea what they're doing these days, lol. I work with them and I don't really know what they do. "business solutions." <-- "we do a lot of computer stuff"They took over the last project I was on b/c they said they could do it cheaper and faster. He he, whoever got stuck with my stuff is doing COBOL :P I hear they're terrible to work for. You can't leave anything out on your desk at night. That'd drive me nuts.
