    What is your fav tech company, not including Apple. Mine would have to be Samsung. Every cellphone I've brought has been a Samsung and I'll probably keep it that way... Samsung makes some good phones, and they give you a lot of options (look at all the variations of the Galaxy S).

    How bout' you guys?

    I'd have to say Google. They make great products. Although they're a software company.


    But other than that, I don't really mind. I like all companies. It drives competition. It drives capitalism.

    I love my Bravia and Sony sound system. I'm no audiophile, but it looks and sounds damn fine to my face.

    Also I do like my PSP. Basically the SRPG platform.

    I guess my answer would be Sony. But with Nintendo very close, losing out because they don't manufacture everything else in my living room.

    I really enjoy Razer accessories. I've owned several mouses, headphones, and pads.

    I like HP too- printers and the Touchpad.

    Roland and Korg.

    Roland just keep churning out high quality musical gizmos - amplifiers, pedals, audio interfaces. Never the most fashionable, but always dependable.

    Korg continually come up with new creative tools, from the Kaoss pads, Wavedrum, Monotron, Monotribe - endless interesting and well priced gizmos.

    Probably Canon. I have a DSLR, P&S as well as a printer from them. Their cameras are superb. Their printers are a little hit or miss but they get the job done.

    Same here... I swear by the Rolands for their E-drums and my first drum machine was a Korg Electribe. Also a big fan of Vestax

    Sony.

    Only company more innovative than Apple, just goes about it the wrong way and comes out with product lines before the technology is there and able to become mainstream.
