  1. I am thinking about making some apple cider everclear. And I want to throw some apple slices in it but not sure how long they will last. Anyone know?
    I planed on boiling some cider sugar and cinnamon and using that with the everclear.

  2. On the US Apple store for a 32G iPod Touch it’s $499 which is approx. €320. However on the Irish apple store the same product is €430. Has is got something to do with the technology involved? Nothing is mentioned on the Apple store.

    Ipad Through Apple TV
    I would like to share my playing a game in the ipad, so people can see it in the TV. I already have the Appel TV and can already share movies, videos and music, but I would like to share other views from my ipad.

  4. I want to make apple and cinnamon muffins for a school assignment. I was going to use dried apple but I’m not sure it will taste any good.

  5. Basically, when you skin an apple, why does it turn brown? I know that this only happens when it mixes with air, but why air?

  6. Im thinking about all the different types of jobs that are assocciated with Apple and I am wondering if a job for Apple would be a good thing to look into. How long (in years) is Apple expected to be on the incline or in the “high business” range? Will Apple be the company to keep up with society? It seems as if they have progressed quite impressively with the public and society’s demands. How well will they keep up their creativity?

    Also it doesnt matter what type of apple every apple makes me feel sick. It is a recent thing. Only over the past 3 years this has happened before i used to love apples i ate one or two everyday. But for some reason i stopped doing that for around a month and the next time i had a apple it made me feel sick and it still makes me sick to eat apples. What is wrong with me?

  8. I’m actually asking about apples, not pot. I’m wondering why apple trees are usually only seen in orchards with many trees, almost never standing alone in someones’ back yard or something.

  9. I have apple juice already in the recipe, but it also calls for apple vinegar. Thanks!

    I know that apple juice is sweeter, but I don’t know what the actual difference in the way it’s made is.

    I don’t have any apple juice concentrate but I do have apple juice. The recipe calls for 2 tablespoons of concentrate.
