Could you live without your iPhone? If you went to your favorite fast food chain, would you order a Big Mac? If you're driving down the street, you might be in a Corolla or a 3 Series. These are some of the most popular products around the world. From Nike to Sony to Microsoft, can you match the company to its famous product?

If you prefer PlayStation to Xbox, could you name the company behind it? For all the fast food lovers out there, who is the maker of the Big Mac? What about the Whopper?
