But something eventually set Apple apart from the rest, and it’s not just the marketing as some people claim. There are two things that have to be combined to make something great – the big picture, and the small details. This applies to everything from design to business, and no industry is excluded from the simple rule. While many companies and their products try to skimp on the details, the truly influential ones make sure it’s all there. The big picture is the great idea, the main premise. Obviously, this is important in itself. For the classic example, turn to Apple.
