No, Apple is a hardware company that develops software to ensure hardware brand loyalty. The main reason they sell hardware is because that's the only way they could become a $100 billion company.

Name some Apple hardware that works with third-party software. Now name some Apple software that works with third-party hardware.

I don't dispute that the hardware isn't so special, and that the software inside is what makes it better. But don't jump to the conclusion that they are thus a software company. Be amazed at how they can use custom software to drive sales of expensive, profitable hardware.

Macintoshes. iPhones. iPads.

>Now name some Apple software that works with third-party hardware.

MacOS. iPhoto. iMovie. Apature. Final Cut Pro. Probably some others...
