 None other than our Steve jobs marketed brand “apple” again stamped its mark in our top ten list of million dollar marketing blog. I don’t think that there is any requirement of briefing about “Apple”. This company’s digital distribution system is second to none. The company had 357 retail outlets (245 in USA and 112 outside).apple has recently been the largest publicly traded company in the world of capitalization and largest technology company by its revenue and profit. Its latest innovative products cart include I phone 4s (inclusions are intelligent software assistant (known as siri), cloud sources data i.e. I cloud).it has also owned the company (c3 technologies, a mapping company for $240 million).I pods, I tunes, I pad and many more made it possible for the company to stay at the top. Apple has built an innovation factory-one that harness, unbridled creativity from its human resource, stimulating bold and enterprising creative ideas. And its innovation process is still out of sight.
