Dodgy MacBooks & Scratched iPhones: Is Apple King of Customer Support?

Misplaced brand loyalty – or brand disloyalty as it sometimes manifests itself – is a game I gave up on long ago.

The Rise And Fall And Rise Of Apple: A Brief History

The success of Apple indeed lies with their attitude of “Thinking Differently”. While the company may not have always been heralded as a success, their strength over the years has come from great vision and not always doing the same things as the competition.
