Score one more point for Apple today, as they have ranked very highly in Fortune Magazine’s “Most Admired Companies”. MacNN reports that the Cupertino based company was named the second most admired computer based company, and seventh most admired company overall…beating Microsoft, who came in at number eight.
Not bad, especially when you consider this is the first time Apple has been on the list at all.

The Cupertino-based company scored exceptionally well — earning industry rank 1 (lower is better) — in the U.S. with regard to innovation, people management, and quality of products/services. Still impressive is Apple’s rank of 2 in long-term investment, financial soundness, quality of management, and use of corporate assets. The company fared less well with regard to social responsibility with an industry rank of 6.
