whats so special about apple products which makes them expensive and highly loved?

People like new things. You're happiest at the start of relationships. You're happiest on the first day of your new car. You're happiest when you travel for the first time. You're happiest when you meet somebody new for the first time. Happiness soon fades as the novelty disappears. You + Brain Researchers say dopamine (the happy juices in our brain) rises when we experience something new. The first time you bought something new: "OH I SO HAPPY! I SO HAPPY! I SO HAPPY!" But then, as the days went, the happy juices faded, we went back to our old selves, and looked for something new and novel to release those happy chemicals. Why Do People Love Apple? Apple attracts peeps by repeatedly producing new innovations that surprise the freak out of us -- releasing our dopamine happy juices, and attracting us to the company with every new/pending innovation. Without Apple's endless stream of bringing us something completely novel that revolutionizes how we see a product category, we'd focus on other innovative companies that can supply the happy juices for our brains. To make your customers happy forever, provide them something new forever. You don't need to revolutionize X like Apple, but constantly innovating and providing new things for your customers over an eternal period will keep their eyes on you.

SORRY DUDE THINGS LIKE THAT HAPPEN....SO WHAT DO YOU PREFARE?

OpenStudy (anonymous):

Well , I preffer Android for being an awesome os, but still going to use my ihpone 3G, gotta buy new battery pack, put it on, and a new back plate for the phone (or just leave the one it has with the quater on :D ). I installed IDroid in my iphone 3G while back, and worked great, so I can have IOS and Android 2.3 in an iphone 3G. Also I am liking Windows Phone 7 and I will get later on a HTC HD7, but for the meantime just have the iphone fixed first.

There is some actual merit to their popularity. I have spent some time surveying undergraduates on this topic, and I also go "both" ways (actually, I use Macs, iOS, Blackberry, Windows, Linux, and occasionally others - this is being typed on a MBPro). Personally, I like that they implement advances in I/O tech in ways that make them accessible (which others fail to do - note the cruddy finger swipe readers on many Windows laptops - which are low quality and store a hash of the fingerprint that is not usable for rich identification beyond differentiation of existing users on the machine). Apples tend to be rugged and wear well during travel. They look professional. These things have not always been true. There are definitely exceptions like the low-quality capacitors they put in the G5 iMacs 7 years ago as well as the plastic case and clasp on the Mac Books around the same time. Nonetheless, in general, I think they do a better job at keeping up the quality than Dell, Lenovo, or HP for personal electronics.

The main thing involved in all apple products which makes them special is that their marketing strategy and the quality of that particular product. I think Steve jobs is the believer of "Quality is more important than quantity.

Apple is brand.People always like Jaguar,Benz etc..Apple reveals the status of ur richness. . .

OpenStudy (anonymous):

The apple simbol behind the product costs 90% of the product.

OpenStudy (anonymous):
