appleApple Inc. is best known for consumer electronic products like the Apple Macintosh computer, the iPhone smartphone, the Apple iPod, and the iPad, a tablet computer.

The company after more than a century of decline managed to return back to profitability in 1998, and the release of the first iPod, a music player with digital flash storage, paved the company’s way to success back in 2001.


Several iPod generations were released by Apple before the company shifted its focus towards the smartphone market where its iPhone, a modern smartphone with touch-input, made a lasting input and managed to repeat the success story that began with the Apple iPod line of products.

The iPad, a touch-based tablet device followed soon thereafter and it too managed to become an instant success.

iPod Touch

Apple once again announced a new batch of iPod devices to lure consumers in the trap of buying just another iPod that can store more Gigabytes, is smaller or offers a touch screen interface. High-End users have the choice between a 8 and 16 Gigabyte iPod Touch which looks pretty similar to the iPhone but […]


I did not pay much attention to the Apple iPhone hype until now but today the newest commercial for the iPhone caught my attention on Youtube. The first thing that struck my mind was that the navigation was blazing fast. As you might know a multi-touchscreen is being used for writing and navigating through menus. […]


Apple and Emi announced today that the entire digital repertoire from Emi music can be purchased at Apples iTunes store without DRM.
