What is Apple?

Today’s “By the Numbers” statistics post is a bit of a deviation from what you may be used to seeing here. Rather than looking at social networks, apps and services, I am looking at a company that offers a little bit of everything to the digital world. Of course, I am referring to Apple.

After all, if it weren’t for Apple computers, devices and software, half the stuff I give you stats on probably wouldn’t exist.

As most of you likely know, Apple Computer, Inc began in 1976 in the garage of co-founder Steve Jobs’ childhood home. Their first product was the Apple I, which was released and sold for the equivalent of almost $3,000 in today’s dollars.

Apple has had its ups and downs along the way and some could say that the lows (the 90’s) were really low and the highs (the return of Jobs – present day) were/are really high. Although Steve Jobs has since left us, Apple stands as a titan of modern industry and one of the largest companies in the world.
