Company of the Week: Apple Computer

Keywords: Steve Jobs

"Apple Computer, Inc. (NASDAQ: AAPL, LSE: ACP) is an American computer technology corporation with worldwide annual sales in its fiscal year 2005 (ending 24 September 2005) of US$ 13.9 billion and 14,800 employees in several countries. Headquartered in Cupertino, California, Apple develops, sells, and supports a series of personal computers, portable media players, computer software, and computer hardware accessories. The company's most well known products include the Macintosh line of personal computers, the Mac OS X operating system, the iPod portable music player, and the iTunes media player. Apple operates retail stores in the United States, Canada, Japan, and the United Kingdom. The stores carry most of Apple's products as well as many third-party products and offer on-site support and repair for Apple hardware and software.

For a variety of reasons, ranging from its philosophy of comprehensive aesthetic design to its countercultural, even indie roots as a company that differentiates itself from the rest of the industry by 'thinking different,' Apple has cultivated a customer base unusually devoted to the company and its brand. This so-called Cult of Mac is as cherished by longtime Apple customers as it is inexplicable to outsiders."
