COMPUTER SOFTWARE
Computer software, or just Software, is the collection of computer programs and related data that provide the instructions telling a computer what to do. We can also say software refers to one or more computer programs and data held in the storage of the computer for some purposes. Program software performs the function of the program it implements, either by directly providing instructions to the computer hardware or by serving as input to another piece of software. The term was coined to contrast to the old term hardware (meaning physical devices).In contrast to hardware, software is intangible, meaning it "cannot be touched. Software is also sometimes used in a more narrow sense, meaning application only. Sometimes the term includes data that has not traditionally been associated with computers, such as film, tapes, and records.

HISTORY
The Apple I, Apples first product. Sold as an assembled circuit board, it lacked basic features such as a keyboard, monitor, and case. The owner of this unit added a keyboard and a wooden case. Apple was established on April 1, 1976 by Steve Jobs, Steve Wozniak, and Ronald Wayne, to sell the Apple I personal computer kit. They were hand-built by Wozniak and first shown to the public at the Homebrew Computer Club. The Apple I was sold as a motherboard (with CPU, RAM, and basic textual-video chips)less than what is today considered a complete personal computer. The Apple I went on sale in July 1976 and was market-priced at $666.66 ($2.55 thousand in 2010 dollars, adjusted for inflation.)

2005-2008 THE INTEL TRANSITION

The MacBook Pro (15.4" widescreen) was Apple's first laptop with an Intel microprocessor. It was announced in January 2006 and is aimed at the professional market. At the Worldwide Developers Conference keynote address on June 6, 2005, Steve Jobs announced that Apple would begin producing Intel-based Mac computers in 2006. On January 10, 2006, the new

MacBook Pro and iMac became the first Apple computers to use Intel's Core Duo CPU. By August 7, 2006 Apple had transitioned the entire Mac product line to Intel chips, over 1 year sooner than announced. The Power Mac, iBook, and PowerBook brands were retired during the transition; the Mac Pro, MacBook, and MacBook Pro became their respective successors.

PRODUCT IPhone
At the Macworld Conference & Expo in January 2007, Steve Jobs revealed the long anticipated iPhone, a convergence of an Internet-enabled smart phone and iPod. The original iPhone combined a 2.5G quad band GSM and EDGE cellular phone with features found in hand held devices, running scaled-down versions of Apple's Mac OS X(dubbed iOS, formerly iPhone OS), with various Mac OS X applications such as Safari and Mail. It also includes web-based and Dashboard apps such as Google Maps and Weather. The iPhone features a 3.5-inch (89 mm) touch screen display, 4, 8, or 16 GB of memory, Bluetooth, and Wi-Fi (both "b" and "g"). The iPhone first became available on June 29, 2007 for $499 (4 GB) and $599 (8 GB) with an AT&T contract. On February 5, 2008, Apple updated the original iPhone to have 16 GB of memory, in addition to the 8GB and 4 GB models. On June 9, 2008, at WWDC 2008, Steve Jobs announced that the iPhone 3G would be available on July 11, 2008. This version added support for 3Gnetworking, assisted-GPS navigation, and a price cut to $199 for the 8 GB version, and$299 for the 16 GB version, which was available in both black and white.

SOFTWARE

RISK DETAILED When you go public with a new product, the obvious risk is to your reputation. If the product gets a negative response from the media or the public, it could affect other successful products. You need to be prepared to manage the impact of negative reviews or public opinion. No matter how good the product is a negative response is always a possibility. Your risk assessment management procedures should prepare you for this scenario. The risk of legacy for apple applications needing remediation. The analysis phase of the

applications will determine the level of risk this poses. It is believed that the only modifications that would need to be made to any application will be associated with the new versions of the software, which are minor changes. However, should testing identify remediation to the

applications, there could be significant impact to the project and its timeline.

We can saw our diagram indicate we came up with new idea and solution for iso7 in short time period eventually we stuck in second we lost our amount of time in outline which we struggle strongly. But first draft was finalize in short period with proper team work but in the first draft Editing which troublesome in our project we manage to come up with suitable modification with research which help us to finalize final draft in short term time. We hope our customer will get new innovation and proper software update with new product launches. ANALYSIS Each software has designed in a particular way Software analysis is critical which make proper after it launches in market. Software can bring great success among the world market. An understanding of these that can help us in designing and modifying our software. New product analysis refers to a mandatory procedure which all companies must go through before the launch of their newly developed product. The analysis takes into account every detail of the software with respect to the research; required material for new idea and the sales and market factors. The existing software analysis helps to gauge how the product can be bettered in terms of both design. This in turn also helps the company become well acquainted with the old one. Our
