The first company to step into the next generation, Apple took their original idea and evolved it into something unbelievable.
Why is Apple the first thought that enters your mind for top-of-the-line electronics? With an app store including over 500,000 different varieties of applications, it’s able to make your business life, educational life and personal life so much easier especially with trying to keep up with daily life. "There's an app for that," is now a phrase that everybody is familiar.
Business owners are now using them keep things simple for them and their employees. A new restaurant in Southern Utah is the first in its small community to have Apple's products center around their entire point-of-sales system. The serving staff can clock in, take orders and cash out the tables in the palm of their hand with the latest iTouch. The system itself is ran from an iPad using as its hub, which is also the screen for the cash register. A little wary at first thinking employees we’re texting on the job, it's the new technology of today; the customers are getting a kick out of it.
For those wanting to learn something, recently iTunes has launched iTunesU featuring courses in just about every subject you can think of with no price tag attached. With classes from Harvard, Yale and a wide variety of other schools to choose from, this option gives anybody an opportunity to learn something new. Of course, taking these classes does not end with a diploma, but the chance to broaden your mind, will simply blow you away.
Apple has built up quite a name for themselves since first releasing the original iPod in 2000 holding 1,000 songs. Their products rumors spread like wildfire until it’s officially announced with news reporters standing outside their headquarters in Cupertino, California, and the first vision of it during a live press conference. Hopeful to get their hands on the first shipment, Apples’ followers will stand in line for hours or even days with a smile on their face.
With electronics quickly falling out of date within months of its purchase, this unfortunately is a problem for even Apple's products. Technology is quickly catching up to itself as they have released 3 iPads since 2010. There's always something better on the horizon with electronics these days. Now with Android devices and its quickly growing Android Market creeping up behind and giving Apple a run for its money, what will be their next electronic masterpiece to maintain its number one spot?
