This article was about Apple's prominence in our daily lives. In the beginning of this century, Apple was not doing well, almost becoming bankrupt. But after Steve Jobs returned, the iPod and the iPad came about, and Apple became really successful. Recently, CNN conducted a survey, and found that 51% of US households have at least one Apple product. Very few companies have become so immersed into our lifestyles.
This article interested me because I use Apple products daily. I have an Apple laptop, an iPod and an iPhone. My father has an iPad. My whole family loves Apple products, and I know most people like Apple as well, but I never realized how strong Apple's presence is in our lives. This is relative to our class because we use Apple products. Our Media Center has Apple laptops. Several of the teachers in our school have Apple laptops. It's odd to wonder what our lives would be like without Apple products.
