Apple has unleashed innovative products in a number of different categories. The company’s dedication to unified aesthetic design practices means you can always recognize an Apple product. Today, we break down Apple’s product line and show how the company continues to win new fans: namely, by continuing to develop new and exciting products. Mac & accessories The original Macintosh 128K computer was introduced in 1984 with the distinctive Ridley Scott “1984″ commercial. The iMac, introduced in 1998, became the company’s flagship desktop computer, and also introduced the “i-” branding across Apple’s product lines. The i- originally stood for both “Internet” and “individual.” The MacBook and derivatives are Apple’s consumer notebooks. Software Apple has developed its own operating systems to run on Macs, along with unique software titles with different applications. The iLife software package is bundled on Apple computers, and includes the titles iDVD, iMovie, iPhoto, iTunes, iWeb, and GarageBand (or iGarageBand, if you prefer). Many Apple professional software titles can be purchased independently. iPod The iPod was introduced in 2001, and is today the leader in portable music players with more than 260 million units shipped. Today, the product is offered in four different formats, depending on the user’s taste:
- iPod Classic: the original model, now with 160 GB of space
- iPod Nano: a smaller player introduced in 2005 with 8 and 16 GB models
- iPod Shuffle: an even smaller player, also introduced in 2005, available in 2 and 4 GB models
- iPod Touch: a player that runs iOS, introduced in 2007 after the unveiling of the iPhone; available in 8, 32, and 64 GB models
iPhone Apple’s Internet-enabled smartphone, the iPhone, first went on sale in 2007. The most recent model, the iPhone 4, was released in 2010. The latest iPhone includes a 960×640 display, a 5MP flash camera, a gyroscope, and FaceTime video calling. Users can download new applications for the phone off of the App Store. If you need it, there’s a good chance someone else has developed the program for it, leading to the oft-quoted catchphrase, “There’s an App for that.” Apple TV The Apple TV was released in 2007 as a set-top device that connected iTunes to HD televisions. More recently, a new, completely redesigned Apple TV was released which lets users rent media from iTunes and stream from YouTube and Netflix. iPad Apple’s latest product is the iPad, a media tablet which gives users full computer functionality on the go. The tablet includes a mobile Safari browser and access to the App Store, iTunes, iBooks, Direct TV Anchorage, and more.
Apple has designed the iPod, iPhone and iPad so that it is easy for you to move or download music to these devices. If you own an iPod, you can get music on the device with a flick of the finger.
Most versions of the iPod offer direct access to the iTunes music store. This music store contains millions of songs for purchase. Of course, you first must be connected to the Internet to access the store from your iPod.

The internet has really come a long way since its early inception into the home and now, with the advent of 4G, wireless internet has really made the jump into the real world making a bigger splash than before. However, the question remains, is the iPhone ready for 4G?
Like all smartphones, the iPhone is no stranger to the online world and people have enjoyed all the different apps, GPS programs and online ordering features that were made possible. Unfortunately, the iPhone suffered like many other smartphones at the time from a 3G network that just wasn’t equipped to handle all the bulk and the load of all those users.
The long short of it was that the idea of “take it with you internet” did not make a good first impression but the 4G service aims to change all that. You might actually be a 4G customer and if you get your internet through sites like clearwireinternet.com then chances are good that you already know this, but if you don’t – basically, 4G aims to do what 3G tried to do by transforming areas as large as cities into wi-fi hotspots that offer some of the best service around. Not only is the iPhone ready, this is the network it has been waiting for.
Thanks to the late Steve Jobs and millions of fans, the iPod has become a household name. Many people own at least one iPod and possibly more as there are multiple versions available. Along with different versions and apps, the iPod has a diverse group of accessories to make your iPod more personable and productive.
While headphones and protective cases are common knowledge to most users, there are some other fun, yet practical, products available to make the iPod experience more enjoyable. iPod Nano users can turn their iPod into a sleek wristwatch by ordering Read more…

If you are an iPhone owner, you should already know that one of its greatest features is the large amount of apps you can install on it. There seems to be an app for everything and anything you may want to do with your iPhone. So, where can you get them?
The answer to this question is fairly simple: the App Store. You can access it directly from your iPhone, by tapping on the pre-installed blue App Store icon on your main screen, or with your computer through iTunes.Additional information can be found at http://www.prweb.com/releases/iphone-looper-app/live-looping-music/prweb8839176.htm.

Apple’s products are always designed and created with a higher degree of ingenuity, skill, and quality than their competition – at least in my experience. My Apple Iphone is a miracle in and of itself. I often think to myself that my Iphone is one of the best items I have ever owned in my life. I actually love my Iphone – and it is not even the newer Iphone 4, it is the older 3gs. I like it so much that I simply find no need to upgrade to the Iphone 4.
The same superior quality exists in Apple’s computers. I Read more…
