Bangalore: Apple brand awe-inspires us. Credited for revolutionizing consumer electronic products; iPods, iPhones, iPads, Macs are ‘apple of eye’ for many. The man who led Apple, Steve Jobs, is regarded as someone who knew what we want before we could understand it ourselves. With such an aura surrounding Apple, we can’t help but regard it as a cult in its own self. With cult comes myth. And Apple has abundant of it. There are myths about company’s history and its founder, as well as its products and how it does business. Read on to know about 7 myths about Apple that got busted, as compiled by Know Your Mobile.

#7 Apple invented apps

Many people attribute the invention of apps to Apple. But Apple only popularized apps.  The apps like Calendar, Ringtone editors and games like Snake have been around since late 1990s. Following the development of new data transmission technologies like GPRS and EDGE, the deployment of applications became simpler. Nokia was quick to capitalize on this trend, as was Microsoft with its original Pocket PCs. By 2002, Palm released Treo Smartphone, which included browsing, email access, computer sync, and a third party suite of applications – and many others, all well before Apple’s App Store.

1: I do not understand what is happening in SI nowadays. SI keeps on boasting Apple and its products. Event this news, "Tablet's aren't new" neither "Smarphones" which was already told by Steve Jobs in his All things D 8 conference. Am not sure what editors are doing to publish such a waste of time article. So far, I didn't see much criticism for Apple from SI than for any other company.

Correction in the last line. So far I didn't see much criticism from SI for any other company apart from Apple.
