The Rebirth of “Apple”
We now see that Apple has a large piece of the pie in the computers market, phones, music players etc, but it was not too long ago when they were more in the shadow of “extra large” players like Dell, IBM and Microsoft.
They were pretty noticed in the States but in the rest of the world they were mostly known from movies. This is mostly due to the fact that not everybody could afford a Macbook. But things started to change in 2001 with the launch of the iPod and the start of the “i” era. Since then Apple has become a trend setter, a innovator an original brand. We have to thank them for all of that. Just image how will our world be without the Macbook, the iPod, the iPhone or the most recent iPad?
These are not just ordinary gadgets, these are products that made history and they still are day by day. They kinda change the way we look at a gadget nowadays and what expectations we have from them, so I guess they not only had a huge impact on technology but also on our social and everyday life. Viva the Apple!
