Technology is the world’s leading industry today because of the fact that it has changed society in every field. Well, why has computer technology prospered through recent years? The answer is very simple, Apple Inc. Apple products have a significant impact on our society due to their stellar design and unique shape, their durability, and their many creative applications. Apple was started and 2established by Steve Jobs, Ronald Wayne, and Steve Wozniak on April 1, 1976. Since then the CEO of Apple has been Steve Jobs. Throughout his career in the computer industry, Steve Jobs has been called tyrannical, mercurial, brilliant, and a revolutionary man because he has brought the world a Mac, an IPhone, and a new way of living with technology (Collins 1). Apple made its biggest turning point on October 23, 2001 when the first generation IPod was released. This changed the industry of MP3 players and the way people listen to music. IPod has influenced people's lives because you can take it everywhere you go, download music on the go, and pick the perfect one that suits your personality. "The new IPod chromatic range brings some great new features to the IPods, with fantastic colors, and a design that makes other Mp3 players hang their heads in shame” (Harrison 3). People love iPods so much that they started writing poetry about them. A man named Phil Chapman, wrote the poem "Life with an IPOD", which describes all the features in an iPod, making it sound like a "living thing." The poem is narrated in the first-person point of view. The poem is directly related to my topic because my topic is about how the Apple industry changed the world of technology and the poem also explains how an Apple product has benefited society. The author of... ... middle of paper ... ..., but let's face it for most users, a Mac cost more than a PC” (Pegoraro 1). Most users are not looking for a top of the line computer, but one that will work for their limited use for a reasonable price. None the less, the commercials are just a television advertising campaign created for Apple Inc. These commercials have many reasons why a Mac is better than a PC. There are many reasons why Apple has been prospering through the years, but the biggest reason is that the engineers at Apple build their computers and products with high quality. All of the different operating systems that their products use are very clean, smooth, and fast. People who want to stand out from the majority buy Apple gadgets because they are the newer technology on the market. They also have that great feeling walking around with that nice apple carved on the back of their iPhone and iPod.
