At $622B, Apple becomes all-time most valuable company

33 posts in this topic

I remember hearing a couple years ago that the Apple brand is the most valuable in history. Just throwing their logo on a product means they can sell it for something like 4x as much. Technology aside, that's impressive.

Honestly people who own Apple products are just the 'cool' kids. It's the popular thing to have. I'm not diminishing the product but you're really just buying the brand.

Tech wise, Apple has the corner on two things; displays and a stable, Unix based custom OS for their PCs. They have without question the prettiest displays of any vendor I've seen, by far.

I will also give them credit for innovation... They apparently learned a lot from their experiences in the PC world of the early 90s.

Apple products tend to work flawlessly out of the box, with no hiccups at all. They are straightforward, simple, stylish in appearance, and very user-friendly. There marketing simply pitches the things it does well. For the hundred million moms out there, nothing makes it easier to do a collage of your kids and put it on Facebook easier than an iPad. I bought my lady a sweet laptop Christmas 2010 and it is blazing fast to this day but she hasn't touched it since I got her an iPad. She likes how it is 'always on' and instantly ready to go, the look, the portability, and the ease of use. She's about the least tech-savvy person I know and some of the photos she puts on Instagram look like they've gone through post-production editing.

I love that a technology company and not an oil company has that record.

That being said, I still prefer a Windows PC

Apple makes a easy to use good looking product.

I'm not gonna pay $200 bucks extra for that though
