In our childhood when we started learning alphabets the first word that was taught to us was ‘A’ for Apple. So we learnt that Apple is a fruit and ‘an APPLE a day keeps Doctor away’.
Later we entered school and we got to know that initially on Earth there were two humans named ‘ADAM’ and ‘EVE’ and we all are related to them in some way.Adam and Eve is the story of creation and sets the tone for God’s relationship with human kind. It tells the story of our fall from Grace, is the basis for the Christian doctrine of Original Sin and forms the basis of not just one but three of the great religions of the world.
Later while studying science we got to know that there is a concept of gravity, a force that helps us to keep our legs on ground. And with further studies got to learn that gravitational force was founded by a great scientist Issac Newton and he found this force by accident. While sitting under a tree an apple fell on his head down from the tree and he just asked to himself why apple is falling downwards and not going upwards.
And now comes the biggest change Apple inc. . I want to first share an observation. Just type apple on google and see which link comes on top.

Later he developed iPods and changed the way people listen to music. And then came his best invention the iPhone which made Apple inc. one of the biggest companies in the world.
1. Apple has twice as much cash as US treasury.
2.In the first quarter of 2014, Apple earned more than Google, Facebook and Amazon combined.
3.Apple has so much spare cash (around $150 billion), it could buy Facebook. Alternatively, it could buy Netflix, Telsa, Twitter, Dropbox, Pandora and Spotify. Yes, all of them.
4. Apple’s 2014 last quarter earnings from iMac was $6.9 billion, more than the GDP of Morocco.
5. Apple’s market cap as of now is $640 billion. That is more than the GDP of all but 25 countries. Number 26, South Africa, had a GDP of $596 billion in 2013.
