Apple Introduced Its First 'Laptop' 25 Years Ago and It Was Totally Awful

Apple Introduced Its First 'Laptop' 25 Years Ago and It Was Totally Awful | Apple in Business | Scoop.it
Proof that Apple has come a long way

In this article, the vast advancements that have been made to apple's laptops  are discussed. 25 yeara ago, the first laptop was very large and difficult to transport. Now, the laptop size has been reduced exponentially, and is easy to take anywhere, along with the addition of tablets to the laptop game. As described in the article,  apple is a member of an oligopolic market structure because only a few firms compete in the phone/computer producing market, and Apple is a corporation because it is ran by a large board of directors.

The release of the new HealthKit app along with the new ios8 update is spurring in the heads of both healthcare workers and consumers. some think that it will give the consumers more control and more information about their health, that doctors will be in less demand. Others say that it will be transformative for the doctors and patients in the hospitals. Apple is steadily driving a transformation in the healthcare industry.

A Watch Guy's Thoughts On The Apple Watch After Seeing It In The Metal (Tons Of Live Photos)

A Watch Guy's Thoughts On The Apple Watch After Seeing It In The Metal (Tons Of Live Photos) | Apple in Business | Scoop.it
I'm not even sure we can call it a watch. Okay, it goes on the wrist, and
it happens to tell the time, but that's about where the similarities
between Apple's just announced watch and the hand-assembled, often
painstakingly finished mechanical watches we write about, and obsess over,
end. I was lucky enough to be invited to Cupertino to witness the
announcement of the Apple Watch firsthand, and though I do not believe it
poses any threat to haute horology manufactures, I do think the Apple Watch
will be a big problem for low-priced quartz watches, and even some
entry-level mechanical watches. In years to come, it could pose a larger
threat to higher end brands, too. The reason? Apple got more details right
on their watch than the vast majority of Swiss and Asian brands do with
similarly priced watches, and those details add up to a really impressive
piece of design. It offers so much more functionality than other digitals
it's almost embarrassing. But it's not perfect, by any means. Read on to
hear my thoughts on the Apple Watch, from the perspective of a watch guy.
Oh, and there are dozens of in-the-metal pictures, too.

This is a staggeringly good review.....by a watch expert, not a technology writer.

In the near future, Apple is releasing the Apple Watch, which will make a massive jump in the workplace and possibly in cell phone use. The Apple Watch allows you to see messages, get vibrating notifications, trach your running, allow you to make calls, and much, much more. The Apple Watch will make improvements in the technical field to help get directions and stay on schedule. In the halthcare field for updates on patients, and majorly in the health and wellness aspect of consumers' lives. The Apple Watch tracks workout routines and will supposedly "encourage their [employers']  workforces to get up and exercise more during the day".

The size of the iPhone 6 and the iPhone 6 Plus are apparently more durable. So many people have dropped their phones and their screens are cracked. Hopefully, their will be less of these incidents that occur with the new phones. In turn, Apple would be increasing their profit by focusing on durability and allowing for people to keep their phones for longer.

According to studies, the new iPhones did the best across a series of tests, not only among older iPhones, but among leading android phones as well.
