What service/company should accept bitcoin next?
My answer is Apple or Google.
Google would be great as you could tip users on YouTube and buy adspace with BTC and Apple because of their huge share on the market.
Share your opinions!

I don't like the word "should" in this context.. it implies some sort of obligation.

What company should accept bitcoin next? Whichever one wants to of course!

Remember Aaron Swartz, a 26 year old computer scientist who died defending the free flow of information.

I think that each of this top internet companies like Google, Microsoft, Ebuy, Paypal, Aplle and many others should accept butcoin.
Bitcoin will be great addition to their payment options, easy to use, secure and it will help bitcoin to become mainstream very quickly.
It will be beneficial to everyone Smiley

A big company which is close to adopt bitcoins is Ebay, when they will announce the implementation of btc there will be a great jump in value.

The problem with PayPal accepting bitcoin is that they are opposing things. PayPal prides itself in using centralisation and will have no control over users if they put in bitcoin..

Paypal wont put a knife in its back by accepting bitcoin.

I can see noone else but online stores accepting bitcoin payments.
It would be interesting to see Dell sales report about purchases of their products made with bitcoin, i have a strange feeling its not that good as people like to think.

The reason for low sales is usually region restrictions,  Dell only accepts btc from The US

I hope so but with Dell the price didn't move much.

People have been trying and we have to be consistent about it I guess.
You will most likely get the same answers.
Amazon, Google, Samsung would be for me. We would have a lot more Bitcoiners if they did.

I agree, but Exxon mobile would be BIG. Exxon had a profit the size of Amazon's for their lifetime in 2.5 weeks, this happens every 2.5 weeks.. http://www.reddit.com/r/Bitcoin/comments/2dsuhw/forget_amazon_paypal_or_ebay_somebody_should_get/

Well you are targeting a new industry. Their operating income was high in 2013,around $40 Billion and that of amazon was only around $700M that's not the important thing.
The important thing is the customer base. People who use amazon should already be somewhat familar with basic computer knowledge and online payments. On the other hand you might find an old 'trucker' (no offence, just example) seeing the 'Bitcoin accepted here' sign on an Exxon gas station and he would probably be like  Huh and just drive away.
Don't get me wrong, it would be great if they accepted it too.
