A new Japanese poll of 500 men and women between 20 and 39 years old revealed that the most desirable company a prospective partner could work for was Nintendo.
Those polled put emphasis on things like job security and a good salary, which, I guess, factor in when deciding if you should spend the rest of your life with someone.
The business world is a fickle mistress, though. In last year's poll, Sony was number two, and this year, it tumbled down to #11. Panasonic was first, and this year, it came in at number forty. Sharp faired worst of all: It fell from number five to #125. Sure hope nobody got married last year only because their mate worked at Sharp. That would make for an awkward 2013.
