Apple has been named “Marketer of the Year” by MediaPost. “Our Marketer of the Year has defied predictions that it could not sustain the momentum of the iPod brand juggernaut, unleashed in 2001,” notes the site. “The company’s once-moribund Mac is making a comeback. Apple now boasts the world’s fastest-growing retail chain. And it continues to unveil major new products and initiatives, while also feeding a steady stream of upgraded and expanded offerings into the marketplace.”
