Microsoft Brand Sinking...But Still Ahead of Google

Another of those brand-strength surveys came out recently (faithful readers of RCP the magazine will remember that we've tackled the topic of Microsoft's brand before) and said that Redmond's mark is way down the list -- 59th, behind Fruit of the Loom -- in terms of brand strength.
