Apple Inc. (NASDAQ: AAPL; NYSE: AAPL; previously Apple Computer, Inc.) is an American multinational corporation that designs and markets consumer electronics, computer software, and personal computers. The company’s best-known hardware products include the Macintosh line of computers, the iPod, the iPhone and the iPad. Apple software includes the Mac OS X operating system; the iTunes media browser; the iLife suite of multimedia and creativity software; the iWork suite of productivity software; Aperture, a professional photography package; Final Cut Studio, a suite of professional audio and film-industry software products; Logic Studio, a suite of music production tools; the Safari web browser; and iOS, a mobile operating system. As of October 2010, the company operates 317 retail stores in ten countries, and an online store where hardware and software products are sold. As of May 2011, Apple is one of the largest companies in the world and the most valuable technology company in the world, having surpassed Microsoft.
Established on April 1, 1976 in Cupertino, California, and incorporated January 3, 1977, the company was previously named Apple Computer, Inc., for its first 30 years, but removed the word "Computer" on January 9, 2007, to reflect the company’s ongoing expansion into the consumer electronics market in addition to its traditional focus on personal computers. As of September 2010, Apple had 46,600 full time employees and 2,800 temporary full time employees worldwide and had worldwide annual sales of $65.23 billion.
For reasons as various as its philosophy of comprehensive aesthetic design to its distinctive advertising campaigns, Apple has established a unique reputation in the consumer electronics industry. This includes a customer base that is devoted to the company and its brand, particularly in the United States. Fortune magazine named Apple the most admired company in the United States in 2008, and in the world in 2008, 2009, and 2010. The company has also received widespread criticism for its contractors’ labor, environmental, and business practices.
While this brand loyalty is considered unusual for any product, Apple appears not to have gone out of its way to create it. At one time, Apple evangelists were actively engaged by the company, but this was after the phenomenon was already firmly established. Apple evangelist Guy Kawasaki has called the brand fanaticism "something that was stumbled upon". Apple has, however, supported the continuing existence of a network of Mac User Groups in most major and many minor centers of population where Mac computers are available.

Blenheim Palace is a monumental region house located in Woodstock, Oxfordshire, England. It is the principal residence of the dukes of Marlborough, and the only non-royal non-episcopal region house in England to keep the title of palace. The palace, one of England’s most significant houses, was constructed among 1705 and circa 1722. Blenheim Palace was selected a UNESCO Entire world Heritage Web-site in 1987.
The setting up of the palace was originally meant to be a reward to John Churchill, 1st Duke of Marlborough, from a grateful nation for the duke’s army triumphs in opposition to the French and Bavarians during the War of the Spanish Succession, culminating in the 1704 Struggle of Blenheim. However, before long following its design started, the palace was to develop into the matter of political infighting this led to Marlborough’s exile, the slide from electrical power of his duchess, and lasting damage to the name of the architect Sir John Vanbrugh.
Made in the exceptional, and quick-lived, English Baroque design, architectural appreciation of the palace is as divided right now as it was in the 1720s. It is exclusive in its mixed utilization as a household home, mausoleum and nationwide monument. The palace is also noteworthy as the birthplace and ancestral home of Sir Winston Churchill.
Subsequent the palace’s completion, it became the home of the Churchill, later Spencer-Churchill, household for the up coming three hundred yrs, and many members of the household have in that interval wrought modifications, in the interiors, park and gardens. At the close of the 19th century, the palace was saved from ruin by money gained from the ninth Duke of Marlborough’s relationship to American railroad heiress Consuelo Vanderbilt. The exterior of the palace continues to be in superior mend.
