It all began with a bright idea from a certain Steve Jobs. One idea that changed the world. Apple has come along way since 1977, developing some of the most recognised products on the planet. During the 1980s Apple sought to make its fortune via the newly released Macintosh. Being a new kid on the block it had tough competitors to overcome; the likes of IBM, Commodore 64 and the Sinclair ZX Spectrum. Apple thrived however of its ease of use. The mid 80’s saw computers which required extensive technological knowledge and whit just to turn the machine on; the Apple Macintosh was a revolution, portrayed very cleverly in an advert -1984; a mickey take on the famous Orwell novel to indicate that the big companies such as IBM (Big brother) would eventually take over the world with out confrontation from the likes of Apple. This was Apples first major success.
Apple is currently the world’s third largest mobile phone maker, behind Samsung and Nokia.But, despite that, the Apple market cap is larger than Google and Microsoft. The original name of Apple Computers was stripped to just Apple in January 2009, when it’s main focus was on hand-held devices, like the iPhone and iPod.
Here we have a quick review on the new iPad.
To put it simply: this is by far the greatest tablet on the market. iPad has come a long way since it’s original release in 2010, when the first iPad came out. From iPad to iPad 2 to the new iPad, it goes from strength to strength.
However, this is just one review on one iPad, and that is the latest version; dubbed “the new iPad” by Apple. It was released on 7th March 2012 and soon became the best-selling tablet device this year so far, with 3 million units sold in the first 3 days. It is certainly one of the most quickest, with the Apple A5X processor chip, and crystal-clear 9.7 Retina display.
Apple have incorporated a FaceTime front facing camera, plus an iSight rear camera. Now, even better with the iOS6 update available.
However, there are some flaws. It does have the tendency to get hot quite quickly when playing games. Also, it is slightly thicker and heavier than it’s predecessor, but overall, if you are considering buying one of these, then do so.
Apple’s latest release is the iPhone 5, a larger, more powerful and more up-to-date version of the iPhone 4S; with that also becoming faster-selling than that of rivals like the Samsung Galaxy S3. At the same time, Apple also released iOS 6, available on iPod 4th gen or higher, the new iPad and the iPhone range. However, Siri is not available on the 3G or the 3GS. The latest iteration of Apples iDevice has seen records broken, both good and bad; the recent problems with the new Apple Maps which subsequently replaced Google Maps on the iPhone , is part of Apples long war for a closed system not based on other services; nevertheless these have caused issues regarding in accurate maps and lost directions. Have the fans longing for the products of the big Apple been held at bay?
To this day Apple has a general sum of money higher than the U.S government. As well as new products releases being able to boost U.S GDP. Apple has become mighty. Some are concerned after the death of late founder Steve Jobs that the innovation at Apple is dead. I don’t know, but they clearly have a well organised and imaginative team in Cupertino. But is Apple still the pioneering company it was 30 years ago? Or has it become the likes of IBM – big brother…
