...according to a blogger who read a one line digg story referencing an SEO blog piece about an article in the Guardian squeezed from what was probably a limited view of the "2006 ImagePower Newsmaker brands survey".

Didn't this have the shit kicked out of it on /. the other day?

(Ah, yes. Of course, being /., it was a rehash from another tech news site, which had given it an anti-Sony spin.)

It's just a typical slow-news-week-padding PR release from Landor Associates, a market research / brand building company. Or, more correctly, it's a blogger's pickup of a wire story based on a PR press release.
