...Steven Wozniak and Steven Jobs were the true founders of Apple. In 1976, Steven Wozniak designed what is now known as the Apple I. Jobs convinced Wozniak that he needed to try to sell the machine, and on April 1, 1976, Apple Computer was created. However, the market was not ready for such an advancement in technology, thus setting back the take off of Apple until 1977. Apple began to increase development with the introduction of the Apple II. The Apple II, included color graphics and came in its own plastic casing. The first real computer to come pre-assembled, there for making it more attractive to a larger group of consumers. After the introduction of the Apple II, the orders for Apples increased dramatically. During 1979, Jobs began working on the Macintosh, when Apple's "Lucy" project began to crumble. The "Lucy" project was originally Jobs idea after visiting the Xerox PARC research facility in Palo Alto. There Jobs first saw and realized the potential or graphical user interface. "I thought it was the best thing I'd ever seen in my life. Now remember it was very flawed, what we saw was incomplete, they'd done a bunch of things wrong. But we didn't know that at the time but still I though they had the gem of the idea was there and they'd done it very well and within you know ten minutes it was obvious to me that all computers would work like this some day." So as Apple's sales began to tumble Jobs started Macintosh. The Macintosh idea was to be an inexpensive DOS PC......

...Apple's success, there is simply too many. However two reasons do tend to stand out and that would be Apple's ability to master the dimensions of consumer demand and market demand. Founders of Apple: Steve Jobbs and Steve Wozniak took their ideas and products all the way to the top, though there is a lot more too it then what meets the eye the actual concept does appear to be simple. All Apple really did was maintain selling the same products worldwide and maintained consistent products and service to all of their consumers. An iPod is an iPod everywhere in the world and this contributes to their success because it meets the needs of people everywhere. Everyone loves music and anytime someone doesn't have something that demands undivided attention they turn on their favorite genre and listen. Apple recognized this and brought a product to market that allowed easy and portable listening at a fair market price. They stay consistent with simple; easy to use products that allow the consumer to customize their listening experience based on his/her personality and interests. As the company evolved and grew they continued to analyze their consumers and continue to bring breaking edge technology to the market at fair prices that many people can afford and are willing to purchase. Apple is a very efficient company and recognized that by using a global strategy they could leverage economies of scale. They do this by moving their manufacturing plants over-seas so they can save......

Along the way he helped to transform seven industries: personal computing, animated movies, music, phones, tablet computing, retail stores, and digital publishing. He thus belongs in the pantheon of America’s great innovators, along with Thomas Edison, Henry Ford, and Walt Disney.

...An essay on apples To delve deeply into apples is an exciting adventure. There are many factors which influenced the development of apples. While it has been acknowledged that it has an important part to play in the development of man, apples is featuring more and more in the ideals of the young and upwardly mobile. Often it is seen as both a help and a hinderence to those politicaly minded individuals living in the past, who just don't like that sort of thing. Hold onto your hats as we begin a journey into apples. Social Factors There is cultural and institutional interdependence between members of any community. When Sir Bernard Chivilary said 'hounds will feast on society' [1] he failed to understand that if one seriously intends to 'not judge a book by its cover', then one must read a lot of books. A child’s approach to apples provides standards by which we may judge our selves. Special care must be taken when analysing such a delicate subject. On the other hand anyone that disagrees with me is an idiot. It breaks the mould, shattering man's misunderstanding of man. Economic Factors Derived from 'oikonomikos,' which means skilled in household management, the word economics is synonymous with apples. We will begin by looking at the Maiden-Tuesday-Lending model, a lovely model. Annual Military Budget apples Indisputably there is a link. How can this be explained? In spite of the best efforts of The World Bank the annual military budget plays......

...The multi billion-dollar corporation, Apple Inc., designs and manufactures some of today’s highest technological gizmos and gadgets. Among their best known products are the Apple and Macintosh computers, iPods, iTunes, iPhones and iPads. Apple is one of the most powerful and influential high tech companies in the world. The success of Apple Inc. stems from the innovation and visions of co-founder and entrepreneur, Steve Jobs, the excellence of the stylish, user-friendly products, and the ability to create innovative products that consumer’s desire. The development of Apple Inc. came during the unstable economic times of the 1970’s. Best friends and college dropouts, Steve Jobs and Stephen Wozniak pooled their electronic and business skills to market what was to become the first personal computer. Stephen Wozniak had designed a small computer, the Apple 1, for the enjoyment of some friends at a Homebrew Computer Club meeting. The Apple 1 developed in Steve Jobs’ bedroom and garage, while he envisioned the commercial potential of a personal computer that could help families with personal finances and small businesses with day to day tasks. Vision, drive and creativity allowed this entrepreneur to take the risk to create a business. The challenge of building that business and the desire to control his destiny required passion and perseverance along with innovation. Apple’s first personal computer, the Apple 1, took six months to design and 40 hours to build with an initial......

...Hase BUSS 508 October 21, 2014 The Apple Corporation has become one of the largest corporations in the world. There are a lot of companies that would like to be mentioned in the same breath as Apple. Many companies want to emulate their success. In this paper I will examine Apple current position and reputation, regarding ethical and social responsibility. According to Crane and Matten (2013) “One of the basic tenets of the Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) movement in business has been it being voluntary and meeting social expectations above and beyond the law.” The Apple Corporation has been publishing its CSR report on its website since 2007. On Apples website it states “Workers everywhere should have the right to safe and ethical working conditions. They should also have access to educational opportunities to improve their lives. Through a continual cycle of inspections, improvement plans, and verification, we work with our suppliers to make sure they comply with our Code of Conduct and live up to these ideals”. Living up to the previous statement concerning apples commitment to ethical and social responsibility has not been an easy one. My position on whether Apple has met their responsibilities would be no because with their brand being the world’s best global brand, they should be held to a higher standard. When you are the leader in your field other corporations are looking at you to ensure all the rules are being followed. Apples 2013 Supplier Responsibility......

...MMWHTI Assignment 15 Design thinking and Innovation at Apple A Write-Up Abhiroop Mankin(1311072) Why has Apple been so successful? What do you attribute it to? What are the key reasons for Apple's success? Are Apple product so successful because of the brand status and premium pricing? Many believe that Apple is so successful because of their marketing and brand status. Is it really true or there is something else? Do Apple products really stand out amongst all its competitors? I'm no expert in Apple products nor am I what is called an "Apple fan-boy" but I will highlight the reasons why I think Apple is successful:  1. Simplicity One of the things that fascinated me about Apple products was its sheer simplicity. A device which is an audio/video player, and has several additional features can be operated with the help of two buttons. An inner round button coupled with the outer "click" wheel could in essence operate the whole device. Apple has exported this outlook to all their other products, and tries to make them as simple as possible; products which the Average Joe could operate with ease. Apple is a classic example of simplicity and ease of use over everything else.  2. Beauty Aesthetic value is of prime importance when it comes to Apple. When was the last time you looked at an Apple product and thought it was ugly? The built, design and form factor of their products along with the choice of material used is usually spot on. More than a Samsung Galaxy......

...Strategy Apple Inc, established by two friends Steve Jobs and Steve Wozniak, designs, manufactures and markets a range of personal computers, mobile communication and media devices, and portable digital music players, and sells a variety of related software, services, peripherals, networking solutions, and third-party digital content and applications. The Company’s products and services include Macintosh (“Mac”) computers, iPhone, iPad, iPod, Apple TV, Xserve, a portfolio of consumer and professional software applications, the Mac OS X and iOS operating systems, third-party digital content and applications through the iTunes Store, and a variety of accessory, service and support offerings (Edgar online, 2010). Apple shipments for smartphones are expected to exceed 400 million globally. The number is expected to reach approximately 850 million by the end of 2013. Apple also experienced strong growth in its iPhone business in recent years. According to Datamonitor, iPhone and related offerings revenues almost doubled, at a rate of 93.2% in 2010 over 2009, to record revenues of $25,179 million from $13,033 million in 2009. What changed? Apple’s use of vertical integration allows the users of their products to share information and applications across multiple devices. Apple’s strict control over their operating systems helps to keep it stable and less vulnerable than other operating systems. Currently the company’s revenues and growth rates are largely dependent on iPhone......

...Public Traded Company Apple INC. In the beginning there was Jobs, Steve Jobs, he is the reason there is an Apple iPod, iPhone, iPad and other Apple products. Apple is an amazing company with amazing products. However, I think Apple has just about had its run. But, I'm only giving you my little opinion. Apple products have a lack of freedom; there is certain things I want to do with my iPhone that Apple won't allow to do. In fact, if I jail break or unlock mines I can perform these tasks. This tells me that Apple wants to control how I use my phone. The question is why? I only want to lock an APP if I let someone use my phone, but Apple won't allow it. In fact, the option to tether from your iPhone always has been an operation of the phone. But Apple didn't want you to do this. Again if I unlock or jail break the phone skies the limit. This bring me to my point, whats next for Apple and its products? Could it be that the reason Apple only allows certain technology's to be access, is to sale them later? Could it be that Apple wants to spoon feed the public to keep the iPhone lovers interested? Without the proper research, I can't give a thought to the management style of Apple. But, If this is the case and Apple is spoon feeding the public to keep them around, is that a part of the management? After I fully research the company and it management style hopefully I will have a clear answer to the question. With no Jobs in place, it seems like Apple is on its last leg. I......

...9-486-083 REV: SEPTEMBER 16, 2011 TODD D. JICK MARY GENTILE Donna Dubinsky and Apple Computer, Inc. (A) At 7:00 a.m. on Friday, April 19, 1985, Donna Dubinsky placed an urgent phone call to her boss’s boss, Bill Campbell, executive vice president for sales and marketing at Apple Computer, Inc. Dubinsky, director of distribution and sales administration, was attending a management leadership seminar located more than two hours away. Her words were crisp and to the point: “Bill, I really need to talk to you. Will you wait for me today? I’ll be back at the office around 5:00.” “Absolutely, I’ll be here,” Campbell replied, although he knew nothing about the purpose of her call. Dubinsky inhaled a deep breath. She felt the time had come to “bet her Apple career” on the ultimatum she was going to deliver to Campbell at the head office in Cupertino, California. Still, she could hardly believe it had come to this. Her first three years at Apple, from July 1981 through the fall of 1984, were ones of continuous success with increasing authority and recognition. She had refined and formalized much of the Apple product distribution policy, and she worked closely with the six distribution centers spread across the country. Unexpectedly, however, in early 1985, Steve Jobs, Apple’s chairman of the board and general manager of the Macintosh Division, had proposed that the existing distribution system be dismantled and replaced by the “just-in-time” method. Job’s......

...Apple Inc. When investors are determining whether to invest in a company they must first look into the financial statements of the firm. Here they can find information on how the company has performed in the past as well as get an idea as to how the company will perform in the future. Apple Inc. is a technology firm who sells products such as the iPod, iPhone, and personal computers. One of their advantages over competition is that they often are innovators in every segment that they compete in. They developed the first smart phone, all purpose tablet, and music storage device. Their ability to stay ahead of the competition and release their products into the market place first has allowed them to gain an uncanny amount of customer loyalty. Once a customer begins using an Apple product they are highly unlikely to switch to a different product. The downside to this is that if Apple happens to fall behind in their innovation and another company releases new technology before them, then there might be a lack of confidence that occurs by investors. For nearly a decade Apple has pioneered almost all major changes in technology, and if they were to miss something investors might become scared, especially with the recent passing of their CEO and leader, Steve Jobs. Over the past 5 years Apple has been steadily expanding in all areas. On average their sales have increased by 42%, with their largest growth occurring in 2011 with a 66% increase from the previous year. For......

...showed that Apple received a 0.75 percent return on investments in the last financial year, which is “significantly less than the 10 percent that investors would have a taken from Standard & Poor’s 500 Index and the Dow Jones Industrial Average, though Apple’s stock itself also was a much better investment rising 60 percent,” according to Bloomberg. One Apple investor argued that such Scrooge McDuck levels of hoarding were not necessary. "That amount of cash is way above what’s needed to have a prudent war chest. It would be a real shame for them to do an acquisition to get into another line of business or dilute something they already have going on." said Keith Goddard, CEO of Capital Advisors Inc. Goddard did imply, rather diplomatically, that it is anyone who replaces him that is of real concern and not Steve Jobs, who is presumably fine to fill as many swimming pools with cash as he likes. "The idea that a different management team is in charge of all that liquidity is more scary to me," added Goddard. Another major investor, Ryan Jacob, chairman and chief investment officer of Jacob Funds in New York which has $3million of stock, has raised similar concerns: "The point is they can’t keep accumulating it. I don’t understand the hesitation about a stock buyback and/or dividend," said Jacob. But is Apple really that tight with its cash? It is noted that Apple generaly finances smaller deals with nothing more than $500 million to date. Considering that Apple......

...high demand of I-phone. In the article “the Man who makes your iPhone”, it makes me feel Foxconn uses slave labor to build iPhones, and they even admit they use child labor. As a report from CBC News pointed on Jan 29th 2011, each iPhone is made by young children’s hand and Apple only give them minimum slave wages. Even though an audit team uncovered several rules at the Longhua plant violate Apple’s code of conduct, Steve Jobs wasn’t mad at Terry Gou because without Terry, Steve wouldn’t be able to reach his goal. When working conditions at Foxconn became unbearable, workers started committing suicide by jumping to their death. The company responded by installing nets to catch people. Suicide problem solved. Yet the consumer relations problem was far from solved, and workplace conditions hadn’t changed overnight. Ironically, the same people who criticize Apple, use Apple products and, ultimately, admit that Apple is possibly the only company doing anything about the problem. Most of my co-workers in my company own at least one Apple products. During a lunch break the other day, after I told them the article I read about how Foxconn treat their employees, they made a lot of criticize and commons, however, they admitted that they still own and use Apple products. One of them stated, “If I stop using Apple product, I’ll never find another I-phone that made the same way”. Under pressure from Apple and other major brands, Foxconn has pledged to improve working conditions in......
