They established Apple on April 1, 1976. They sell the Apple I personal computer kit, a computer single handedly designed by Wozniak.
The kits were hand-built by Wozniak and first shown to the public at the Homebrew Computer Club. The Apple I was sold as a motherboard (with CPU, RAM, and basic textual-video chips), which is less than what is today considered a complete personal computer. On January 3 1977 and without Ronald Wayne that sold his share of the company back to Jobs and Wozniak for $800 the company was incorporated. Multi millionaire which is Mike Markkula provided essential business expertise and funding of $250,000 during the incorporation of Apple.
During the first five years of operations, profits doubled every four months, an average growth rate of 700%. By the end of the 1970s, Apple had a staff of computer designers and a production line. The company introduced the Apple III in May 1980 in an attempt to compete with IBM and Microsoft in the business and corporate computing market. Before this it was known as Apple Computer Inc. This product is originated from an American multinational corporation and its headquarter is in Cupertino, California. They designs , develops and sells consumer electronics, computer software and personal computers.
They are known best by hardware products that were named as Mac line of computers, the iPod music player, the iPhone Smartphone and the iPad tablet computer. Its consumer software includes the OS X and iOSoperating systems, the iTunes media browser, the Safari web browser, and the iLife and iWork creativity and productivity suites. It was founded on April 1, 1976 and on January 3, 1977 it was incorporated as Apple Computer Inc. The word ‘computer’ was removed from its name on January 9, 2007 and turns out that it was the same day as Steve jobs introduced the iPhone.
Apple is the world’s second largest information technology company after Samsung Electronics and was the third world’s largest mobile phone maker after Samsung and Nokia. Apple is the most admired company in the United States in 2008 and in the world from 2008 to 2012. Plus, Apple is the largest publicly traded corporation in the world by market capitalization with an estimated value of US$415 billion as of March 2013. The company had 72,800 permanent full time employees and 3,300 temporary full time employees worldwide on September 29, 2012.
This company also entered the top ten of the Fortune 500 list of companies for the first time and rising 11 places above its 2012 ranking into the sixth position. Culture No one has affected popular culture more in the last decades than Steve Jobs. Let's start with the single track model. For decades, music could be purchased as singles or as albums. Then we went through a long period, from the adoption of the cassette through the early years of the CD, where singles were essentially gone and almost all music was purchased as albums if it was purchased at all.
Digital music brought back the single song purchase with a vengeance. Not only could the songs chosen for release as singles be purchased alone, but just about anything could be purchased alone. Albums went from being primary to being utterly secondary or perhaps tertiary, behind singles and user created playlists for specific functions like working out or meditating. Apple has always prided itself on simple and user friendly photo and video editing software, usually included right on your machine and ready to work with all the other Apple stuff you own.
Programs like iMovie are designed to give you the feeling that you can create something professional looking that you can show to your friends and the growth of social media has, of course, made that an even more powerful idea. Steve Jobs was a tech CEO, but he also functioning as a culture broker. He didn't have everything and he wouldn't necessarily give it to you the things quite the way you wanted it. There might be somebody else who had it too. But this guy was right there, and he sure had done us a really big favour in this century. Economy
Nowadays, consumer electronics are trying to make higher end technology more versatile and cheaper. However Apple appears are trying to make its products less versatile and expensive. But it seems that people still like to waste money on Apple products even though if they could purchase a similar, if not better product from another manufacturer. The major reason why Apple products are more popular and likely to be chosen rather than Asian made devices with better specs is because people believe that Apple products are all American which is of course is not true.
They tend to think that if you have Apple products it will let everyone around you knows that you are financially are better of than them. Buyers also simply assume that the latest and most expensive gadget from a company with a big reputation like Apple has got to be the best or it would not be so priced so high. So that is why they just bought them without doing some research first. Legal Even though Apple products is widely accepted across the America somehow they sometimes are having legal problems too. Apple has been criticized for its strict control over the iPhone Application Store.
All applications must be approved before they are made available for download. The company has defended this practice, stating that it keeps faulty and potentially dangerous software from being made available, as well as banning content such as pornography. Hackers have been hard at work on jailbreaking iOS 4 since it was released in June. Of course Apple has fought that practice. Later the U. S. government announced new rules that make it officially legal for iPhone owners to "jailbreak" their device and run unauthorized third party applications.
In addition, it is now acceptable to unlock any cell phone. Political Most of the products are available in Iran after one or two weeks. There is no official Apple representative in Iran therefore they get a higher price, higher risk, no trained Apple technicians and no offical support and services. This is due to the political issue. Us sanctions against Iran and US companies. The price for an unlocked phone in Iran cost about $1400 and it is really high. Although Apple has reduced its price up to 33% they will get only 14% reduction from third hand retailers.
From Apple’s privileges of innovation and design they will get nothing. That is how politics enters into their daily life of consumers buying electronics products and Apple fans inside Iran. That is why it makes Iran a high risk and a high profit market. The only way for them to use and iPhone is to buy the unlocked version. However they may lose their iPhone’s lock status after upating any major software. Social Apple products have shaped our society in a totally different way. The ipod touch, iphone, and ipad have all been a big impact on society.
Now we all can read books on the products search the web, play games, text and make phone calls. We do not need a computer anymore, the ipad is practicaly a small computer with many possibilties. All of these products are touch screen with one button to bring you back to the menu. In the future apple will do great things with high technology and possibilities. Apple has essentially created an entire era of products that will always be in demand by the consumers, and will be bought due to the sheer convenience and appearance of the item, as the products are interesting and beneficial. Conclusion
Since 1976, Apple has been looking for the way of ideas and technology in the business and commercial realm of computers and music.
