Contrary to what many may believe or feel themselves, Apple, as it turns out, does not resonate with its direct consumer base in the favorable manner one would expect, given how quickly its products fly off the shelves year after year. The Verge in cooperation with consulting firm Reticle Research, conducted a sample survey of 1,520 American consumers to determine how they feel about several big-name tech organizations.
