HISTORY<br />Apple was founded in 1976 by Steve Jobs and Stephen Wazniak<br />They started off building simple computers in Steve’s bedroom and eventually transformed into the company they are today. <br />Their company was named after Steve’s summer job, where he worked in an apple orchard. <br />
  3. 3. iPod<br />In 2001, Apple created a digital music playing device called the iPod.<br />This product was extremely popular and helped Apple become one of the top competitors in the technology industry. <br />The first generation iPod came with a 5GB hard drive and a scroll wheel that set it apart from other music playing devices<br />

There they will explain the new features, any modifications, and how to properly work the iPod. This will help Apple consumer have a better understanding of the product they buy before purchasing it. This will eliminate post purchase dissonance. <br />
