Definition #2 for "apple"
Apple Inc. is an American consumer electronics company known for pioneering the Macintosh personal computer in the late 1980s and early 1990s, as well as the portable MP3 player in the early 2000s. It is perhaps best known for its ?iProducts,? such as the iPod and iPhone, which have become so ubiquitous within the Western culture that the company has developed an enormous following referred to as the Cult of Mac by some observers. With the commercial success of iProducts, the company quickly grew into the largest publicly-traded corporation in the world and the largest technology company in the world, both by profit and revenue. Despite this, the corporation has been criticized for unethical labor, business, legal, and environmental practices.
