Uh, I might be wrong on this, but I don't believe that Apple invented that.

Anyway, I believe the title should have been apply products, not inventions.

Um, these aren't 'INVENTIONS'. They're *products*. There is a difference. Some of the products contain 'inventions' - those were patented. Not all the patented ideas should have been patentable but that's a different topic (see "curved corners" for example)

And not to ruin jdennis007's day ... the concept of 'windows' existed long before apple or microsoft, from companies like Xerox and others, as well as X-windows (UNIX).

I was using X Windows in 1987.... http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/X_Window_System

^ LOL I second that. iFanboys are the only best thing they have.

Anyways, not an apple consumer in any department (not even iTunes), but iPod Touch would probably be the product I'd say deserves most praise compared to the rest of their list of products.

I find even iPod inferior to Creative's products of that time aside from raw memory space. Sad that Creative's MP3 department kind of just started failing after iPod touch's generation.

You forget the iSalesmen....

Truly they are so dedicated, they are hopeless in service for anything other than Apple stuff....

To be honest, I've never owned a single Apple "product". However, I was using an Apple IIe in Jr. High, and that was pretty dang cool back then.

Only apple juice for me. Unpeeled apple is a no-no for me. Too lazy to peel.

I used one too back in the day, we had a text based rpg of Star Wars that we used to play, then we got a Winter Olympics game which actually had graphics.

I miss my iPod Video, damn. Was never weighed down by slow processing like my iPhone is (totally gonna swap for a Samsung Galaxy when I can).

I like the way I can organize music on iTunes, but it sure does suck how it actually manages to use algorithms that completely ruins the shuffle feature and reduces overall audio quality. Also, it's a hassle to get video files around; I don't even bother.

The Ipod was nice and all, but the first Iphone was truly revolutionary.. I guess so is the I pad, but I'm not really down with the tablet thing.
But everything else from Apple is pure ripoff.. Especially the Macbook pro! I know, cos I have one. But for my profession I need the Mac OS, so I don't really have any other option.. I will never understand why 'normal people' buy Macbooks.

I don't think Apple has actually managed to invent anything. They are just in the business of executing failed products with great ideas behind them a lot better than the original company. They didn't make up the concept of the MP3, they just made the first good implementation of it. Nor did they invent smartphones, they just made them consumer friendly. I really see nothing.

As for inventions using apples, my vote goes to Apple™ cobblers.

As for Apple's most revolutionary product. The iPod. Sad part is that Sony had everything ready to go for an iPod competitor well before Apple launched their iPod, but it got killed by the entertainment side of the company.

Personally, I enjoy my Sansa mp3 players a lot. They work fine and if I crush one its no big deal. Whereas watching someone crush their iPod, one gets to see all sorts of trauma.

Does a Sansa Fuze have the ability to play Pandora Radio?

Edit: Probably would never get one. I checked for its price on Bestbuy.com, and the 8 GB model has more 1 star ratings than any other rating. I read of issues like very bad touch controls, units freezing, and tracks skipping to the next track out of the blue.
