What is Apple?
Apple Inc. is a company based in Cupertino, CA, which designs, manufactures, markets and distributes consumer electronics, personal computers, software and networking services. It is considered by many to be among the Big Five technology firms, along with Microsoft, Amazon, Yahoo, and Google. The company is best known for its popular iPhone, iPad, iPod, Macbook Air, iBook, iDVD, MacBook Pro, Blackberry, and Nintendo.

Both the iPad and the iPod touch have touch-screen technology, which allows them to be used by fingers rather than by using a stylus or a finger. Apple claims that the touch screen technology on the iPad and the iPod touch allows the user to navigate through their display much easier, but this is debatable.
