It's Texas Instruments (TI) - Those are the pics of the 4 founders (Cecil Green, Erik Jonsson, Eugene McDermott and Patrick Haggerty), GSI or Geophysical Service Inc was the parent company of TI before the name change. GI stands for General Instrument, another company which existed at that time. As a result, they had to name the company as General Instruments before the name changed to Texas Instruments.

Identify this 'place' - 4 images from different angles.

It's the Pacific Island nation of Nauru. With the total area around 21 sq. km, it is one of the smallest nations in the world. More interestingly, it doesn't have an officialy capital.

Just identify the two organisations/groups/clubs/companies/(insert similar term here). Oh, and if it's of any help, the logo on the left used to be mud-brown in colour before changing to the present blue that you see.

Ans: Puddlemere United and Chudley Cannons - Quidditch teams.

One's missing - And for a good reason.

Just give me the connection between these nations. The title of the post may (not) help.

PS: Sorry for the bad alignment of the flags and their quality. But I guess they are all identifiable.

Ans: Countries with the 'prestigious' AAA credit/debt rating awarded by S&P 500. And the missing one is obviously, the United States of America which was downgraded recently to AA+.
