Site Visit and Interview

As it says in my other post I am researching on my Capstone project on Apple Inc. I needed to have a site visit at an Apple store or a place related to Apple and an interview with someone who works there. It was easy to get a site visit and an interview.

This weekend I had my site visit at the Apple Store in Greenwich. When I went I observed on what was happening at the store at the store at that time. Also I observed what all the products and services they offer and I took pictures. People were sitting at tables with phones. The people working there helped the crowd and showed them iPhones and iPads. I took pictures as notes including pictures of computers, beats, speakers, iPhones and a tooth brush.

On Monday I had my interview with my uncle, Tracey who works for Apple and lives in Florida. My interview was over FaceTime. We talked for around 30 minutes I asked all different questions about Apple Inc. I ask him questions that are related to my main question “how did Apple’s products improve people’s everyday life from when they did not have Apple to now?” and then other questions about Apple. It was very exciting to have my interview and site visit I learned new things about Apple and their products that helps me understand more about Apple.

Capstone- Choosing a Main Inquiry Question and Choosing Sub Questions

For my capstone after I chose my topic I had to make my main question and sub questions. My main question is “How did Apple inc improve people’s everyday life to now?” I thought that would be a interesting question and a fun question to.  This question is not about the technology, but it is not really all about the company it is about people and the company and the technology. My sub questions are is the design for Apple inc phones better than other phones? Why was Apple inc created? What does apple build of off when they are building something? How often does the technology change? How many times does a ipad iphone or computer take before it is right? I think these sub questions are good sub questions because they can help me with my research and I think they will help me for my main question. How I think my sub questions will help me with my main question is my sub question will help me find more information for my main question.
