2015 Year In Review

Saul Fernandez - Period 6

Three Companies Marketed Themselves the Best

  1. Apple: The Apple company this year was able to release the Apple Watch as well as the new iPhone 6S. Seems like Apple always improves the technology we carry today, and that's why they're always number one every year.
  2. Nike: Nike always seems to attract every celebrity and has been endorsed over the years (unintentionally). Rap artist Future and Drake recently released a song named, "Jumpman," which is named after Nike's Air Jordan logo.
  3. Uber: Uber, a cab company, has revolutionized the transportation industry. Using technology and credit cars, people are able to get rides anywhere they want and whenever they want. Through the app, they know when their cab is about to arrive through the mini-map and also pay straightly through the customer's card rather than cash.
