Books on Apple?

Greetings everyone. Recently a friend asked me to help her with an essay (around 15 pages or so) about the Apple company. It isn't my kind of literature and Apple is the least of my fav. brands so I know about it just technical stuff. I'm looking however on books or sources different from this, like history, products, logo etc. I don't want to use Wikipedia unless I have to.

Thank you all.

Try the recent biography of Steve Jobs. I think the author was "Walter Isaacson" - something like that, anyway.

I agree: Walter Isaacson's bio of Steve Jobs is a fantastic history of Apple. Wired Magazine and Newsweek have also had good articles about Apple over the years.

That was a great read. I'll forever remember the part where Steve puts the bomb under his 4th grade teacher's chair.

"She was never again the same".

This book from 1994 was a favorite of mine:

Apple Confidential 2.0 by Owen Linzmayer covers Apple history up to about 2004 or so. I think that would be just before the first iPhones.

I completely agree about apple corp however like them or not they tend to be an industry leader and point the direction for the computer industry. As such apple is sort of like a necessary evil. Their ipad is not all proprietary since amazon and B&N have offered free apps for the ipad that allows users to buy and read books from both stores. They are sort of like a necessary devil, better to have them around and hate them then to not have them and wish they were around.
