Interesting facts about Apple, iPhones and Steve Jobs

 

The amazing brand that redefined computers and technology overall surely hides some interesting facts about the products, the brand itself and the founder. The evolution is an amazing one, the brand being currently one of the top sellers around the world in terms of techy stuff. Truth be told, Apple brands have become an obsession, a fetish for many, and needless to say, when the company launches a new product, inevitably there will be thousands of people lining up to get their hands on a new product. On the topic of iPhone’s evolution, you can read more at http://blog.mobilemob.com.au/, but below we will provide some interesting facts about the brand the man behind it and the products he created.

Interesting facts about Apple iPhones and Steve Jobs

Steve Jobs is half Syrian

Yes, you read that right, and if this doesn’t surprise you, maybe the fact that he was adopted, might. As his young and clueless biological parents met at the University of Wisconsin at 23 years old, the couple put on adoption the baby that was to become a legend in 1995. His father was a Syrian immigrant, known under the name of Abdulfattah Jandali. So don’t judge people based on their skin colour or social status, because they might in fact change your future someday.

The first Apple computer had a rather odd price

Many might call it satanic price since the product’s price tag said $666.66. Apparently, the first Apple product was accidentally priced under the number of the beast since the American electronic guru Steve Wozniak didn’t realise the satanic connotation he gave to the fresh piece of engineering.   

Your Apple products are shipped to you by air…

…and never by sea. The company seems to value the rapidity with which their products reach the customer, and not the price at which the shipment comes. Because of this reason, shipments travel from China to the States in only fifteen hours, not thirteen days, like if they were to be shipped by sea. Another reason behind this strategy is that their products are more than unlikely to be high jacked during a flight. The airline of choice is Cathay Pacific, being the largest customer the freight company has.

The guy guilty for the satanic price tag still works for Apple

Remember Steve Wozniak? Years later he still works for Apple. He is the company’s co-founder, starting the brand in his garage in 1976. He does not work for Apple technically, in the present, but the $120.000 he still receives yearly make it look so.

The third original party gave up his right only a few weeks in

Technically, the brand was started by the two Steves, and Ronald Wayne. Who, ironically, sold his stake only a few weeks in, fearing the debts. Once again, ironically, he sold his 10% stake for only $800. Only if he knew…

These are some interesting and rather unexpected facts about the empire we all seem to love. If you are interested in finding out more about the company’s products, research diligently the specialised websites and blogs.
