A Native "Indian" (North American Aboriginal; First Nations; Indigenous; First Tribes; AmerIndian; American Indian; Canadian Indian; Native American; Native Canadian; Native North American; Mixed Blood; Half-Breed) person who is "red on the outside, white on the inside."
Sometimes said in jest or humor, but more often derogatory.
It means a First Nations ("red") person who is either full-blooded and "acts
white" (ie: wearing a suit and tie; working in an office; talks and acts and/or thinks "White".)
It could be said about a mixed-blood person who is part Native and Part Black or Asian or "other" non-Native ancestry, but only if they presented themselves as being savvy or invested in or involved in the so-called "White" system.
Can also mean a "half-breed" of half Native/half White ancestry (mainly said by Native people, either jokingly or derisively, or a bit of both.) It does NOT refer to a Métis person, as that is a culture unto itself (of half Native - often Cree - people and Whites - usually French-Canadian or from the North West U.S.)
Can also mean an "urban Indian" (a Native person who grew up off the Reserve mainly amongst non-Natives.)
Can also refer to a Native person who grew up in the foster care system and does not know his/her roots; or (in this context, can even be a veiled compliment) a Native person who takes part in "Native life" (pow wows, visits to family on the Reserve, "Red Power" politics, etc.) but has been educated in the "White" system and is as familiar with non-Native ways of life and thinking as with Native ways.
Our Chief talks about bringing back our traditional fishing rights, but he's just an apple who wants to "bed down" with The White Man and make some fast money.
She looks Japanese, but she's an apple - her Mom is Ojibway and her Dad is a White guy.
Professor Red Cloud Dancing is well-loved by his people (the Sioux) and those non-Natives at the University - he's a good apple.
Poor Johnny Big Deer - he grew up in the White foster care system, and he doesn't even know any other Native people - he's an apple.
That apple Mr. Abbotossaway is our boss in Accounting and Manager for The District, but he has family on the Reserve he sees regularly.

The alternative to the orange.
Today, I do not wish to consume an apple. I shall seek alternative fruits.
A horrendous company that has somehow managed to stay afloat for years and appeal to a mass of misguided people. They specialize in taking existing technology, making it all shiny and fancy looking, and re-selling it for double the price. Ironically, their slogan is "Think Different".
Their latest and greatest gadget that's getting all the attention is, of course, the iPhone, which is basically comparable to any high-quality $150 phone, except it has "innovative" touch screen technology, and it sells for $600.
Apple couldn't quite figure out how to make an operating system, so they just stole the freeBSD kernel and repackaged a bastardized version of it as Mac OS X. It's funny that Apple brags that it's "Unix-based", since no one with experience in Unix would ever use a Mac.
Apple frequently runs "clever" ads. Although they've made a ton of them, all the ads boil down to how Windows has viruses and crashes all the time. Apple also have an enormous, cult-like fanbase that like to remind us of these things every five seconds. Apple fanboys are generally smug, annoying, and arrogant, despite the fact that most of them don't know jack shit about computers.
Apple Fanboy: "M$ is teh sux0r! Apple pwns!"
Windows User: "Windows has a wide selection of software and games, and a huge developer community."
Apple Fanboy: "BUT IT CRASHES AND HAS VIRUSES LOL"
Windows User: "My OS hasn't crashed since I had Windows ME. And AVG is a free program that keeps my computer secure."
Apple Fanboy: "BUT WINDOZE SUXX!"
Windows User: "Would you care to tell me about your Mac? I hear it doesn't have many tools for software developers, which are important for my work."
Apple Fanboy: "lolololol but windows sucks!!!11"
Windows User: "Did you know that a great amout of Apple software is made with Microsoft Visual C++?"
Apple Fanboy: "omg wtf is C++?"
The truly heinous name of Chris Martin and Gwenyth Paltrow's lovechild.

THE MOST BADASS FUCKING FRUIT ON THE FUCKING PLANET. SERIOUSLY, THIS MOTHERFUCKER KICKS THE SHIT OUT OF THE PUSSY ORANGE OR BANANA. THIS JUICY, RED MOTHERFUCKER IS THE BEST FUCKING THING THAT GOD HAS EVER CREATED. EAT AN A APPLE AND YOUR DICK WILL GROW 3 INCHES. FUCK.

A manufacturer of computers, peripherials, and software with around a 3% share of the pc market.
Most well-known products include:
final cut pro
While their operating system's market share may be significantly below that of Microsoft's windows, many still prefer to use Apple's computers and software, especially for graphical design and audio work.
Many people like to debate over the superiority of macs over pcs and visa versa, such people have no lives.
1. "Quite frankly, I don't give a shit weather you prefer Apple computers or Windows PCs."
2. "The Apple vs. PC debate is mindless and insubstantial, try both and use whichever you prefer."

A greedy-ass company that makes a shit tone of money and over-prices their products
Guy 1: Hey, want to go to the Apple Store and get a iPod Touch?
