However, Apple's innovations, although radical at first, continuously aimed to keep the consumer attached with small incremental innovations. Although that strategy worked for a short while, after a period of immense growth that vaulted Apple to the top, they seem to be coming into a mature stage. Their inventions, once the radical innovations in the market, have become only incremental additions to their once strong products. As the text states, "the purchasing power of the early majority subsides. Their demand was satisfied in the growth stage, and they are now making only replacement or repeat purchases." Apple's once unheralded success seems to be eroding. Their share price has dropped 16.5% in the last 6 months, while Google's has risen 15% (Exhibit A). Additionally, although they just won a large lawsuit against Samsung, the Korean phone electronics company has taken over as the world's No.1 mobile phone maker. Apple's has shown chinks in the once impenetrable armor. The marketplace has caught up with Apple and their markets are being saturated with other companies' products that are cheaper, faster, and more user friendly than Apple's.

According to NBC News, Apple CEO Tim Cook told Re/Code that the company "could build about anything that you could dream of," adding that acquiring Beats would give them a "head start" and add "kindred spirits" to company (Wagstaff, 2014). Given the years of musical experience that both Dr. Dre, a well–known legendary artist and music producer and Jimmy Iovine, the Chairman of Interscope Geffen A&M Records have and the energy they have brought to the hip–hop and pop cultures, it is no wonder that Apple would have made the decision to acquire Beats Electronics and Beats Music.

  • 33. A Study On Australian Indigenous Art Another aspect of Australia is its art. There are many type of art present in Australia, but one in particular is Australian Indigenous art, which is the oldest ongoing tradition of art in the world. Initial forms of artistic Aboriginal expression were rock carvings, body painting and ground designs, which date back more than 30,000 years. After Australia was colonized the sale of artifacts occurred between indigenous and non–indigenous people on a widespread basis throughout south–eastern Australia. The quality and variety of Australian Indigenous art produced today reflects the richness and diversity of Indigenous culture and the distinct differences between tribes, such as languages, dialects and geographic landscapes. Art is an important part of Aboriginal life because it connects past and present, the people and the land, and the supernatural and reality. Indigenous art now ranges over different mediums, from works on paper and canvas to fibre and glass, because of the introduction of these sources to the Aborigines in 1970 by a school teacher. The result was a flourishing art movement throughout the Western Desert that stimulated an arts industry that now generates around $200 million a year nationally.

What can we do to stop this disaster from taking place? One vital step is replacing the fear of many animals that people have with respect. Most predatory animals that have gone extinct in the last few centuries died because people were too afraid to try to understand and coexist with them ("Habitat Loss"). In reality, it is quite simple to live near a "dangerous" animal if you merely bother to learn a little about them. For example, I have been helping my father catch and rescue terrifying crocodiles since I was nine years old (Pettinger). He never feared for my safety because I respected the crocodiles and I knew how to handle them (Pettinger). I was once quoted saying "Snakes are just very instinctive to me. I 've been playing with snakes since before I could walk. It doesn 't matter where or what it is, from the biggest to the most venomous" (Anderson). I hope to show the world through quotes like this and my actions on "The Crocodile Hunter" that crocodiles, snakes, and every other "dangerous" animal can be safely handled if you learn to respect them. Another major step to preserving nature is to stop or even reverse the loss of habitat the planet faces every day.
