The company also has a chain of retail stores known as Apple Stores.
Apple's core product lines are the i Phone smart phone, i Pad tablet computer, i Pod portable media players, and Macintosh computer line.
As of 30 June 2015 Steve Jobs and Steve Wozniak had withdrawn from Reed College and UC Berkeley respectively by 1975.
Wozniak designed a video terminal that he could use to log on to the minicomputers at Call Computer.
Jobs, who had been ousted from the company in 1985, returned to Apple in 1996 after his company Ne XT was bought by Apple.
The company is now also known for its i OS range of smart phone, media player, and tablet computer products that began with the i Phone, followed by the i Pod Touch and then i Pad.
Wozniak completed the machine and took it to Homebrew Computer Club meetings to show it off.
At the meeting, Wozniak met his old friend Jobs, who was interested in the commercial potential of the small hobby machines.
The local credit manager asked Jobs how he was going to pay for the parts and he replied, "I have this purchase order from the Byte Shop chain of computer stores for 50 of my computers and the payment terms are COD.
If you give me the parts on a net 30-day terms I can build and deliver the computers in that time frame, collect my money from Terrell at the Byte Shop and pay you." The credit manager called Paul Terrell, who was attending an IEEE computer conference at Asilomar in Pacific Grove, and verified the validity of the purchase order.
In his essay From Satori to Silicon Valley (published 1986), cultural historian Theodore Roszak made the point that the Apple Computer emerged from within the West Coast counterculture and the need to produce print-outs, letter labels, and databases.
