The sad demise of the technological stalwart, Steve Jobs has only made us wonder at the kind of spell and the revolution it has cast on the world of communication and mechanics, transforming it into a procession of gadgetry that draws its primary inspiration from Apple and its products. Needless to state, there is a score of celebrities who own one or the other of Apple products, some of them being Jonas Brothers, Eva Longoria, Jennifer Aniston, and Angelina Jolie. All of the Apple products, each unique in their own sphere, are more like lifestyle-enhancing utilities that also feature fashion statements.
