Its best-known hardware products are the iFruit and the Fruit line of computers. Its software includes the FruitOS and an unnamed Graphical user interface. In 2008, the key people are Mr. E. Mann and Doug Hatchet.

OverviewEdit

Events of GTA IVEdit

The CEO, Doug Hatchet, has outsourced all of Fruit Computers employees overseas, except himself. Doug now is the sole occupant of the Fruit Computers Headquarters. All the company has left in it is a photocopier that doesn't work, and a stapler without staples. There is a Fruit Computers warehouse in Port Tudor, Alderney, however the building seems to be abandoned. Fruit Computers can also be seen advertised in various computer shops throughout the game. On WTF billboards and advertisements it can be observed that Fruit Computers is one of the musical's sponsors.

Events of GTA Chinatown WarsEdit

The player gets a Fruit Laptop in every safehouse (pink in the DS version, black in the PSP version). The player is not able to access the internet, but it features e-mail and Rockstar Games Social Club compatibility. Also, many characters, including Wu Lee have fruitcomputers.com email accounts.

Events of GTA VEdit

The company maintains its popularity during the events of Grand Theft Auto V, with the launch of the second generation iFruit. Fruit all-in-one desktops, which resemble iMacs, are shown in gameplay. Fruit laptops, similar to the MacBook Air, can also be seen. Later in the game, after the mission Vinewood Souvenirs - Tyler, a Liberty tree internet article says that the company has just announced iFruit Shoes, wearable technology that navigates people to discount stores and tells which places they should avoid. This is probably based on Google's talking shoe concept. The article also mentions iFruit underwear, a wearable device that vibrates when the user is near an bathroom or other user is interested in fast and anonymous sex.

During the mission The Vice Assassination, Franklin is hired by Lester to assassinate Facade's CEO, Jackson Skinner, while he is picking up a prostitute. His murder makes iFruit stocks on the BAWSAQ, sky rocket.

Stock TipEdit

Before completing The Vice Assassination, invest all the money of all the three protagonists in iFruit stocks, complete the mission and wait 6-8 hours in-game until the stocks reach their maximum percentage of return, in this case is about 50%.

Corporate identityEdit

Edit

The logo bears a resemblance to the male genitals, due to Rockstar's adult humour. The logo's former color scheme also parodies the Microsoft Windows logo color scheme (with the exception of red being changed to orange). As of 2009, the color scheme has been replaced with silver. Alternate logos also include "Fruit" written to the right of the original logos.

TriviaEdit

  • The Fruit Cocoon shares the shape of College Humor's "i", a parody of Apple products, and resembles the bottom of an iMac G4.
  • The host of the radio station The Journey in Grand Theft Auto IV is a Fruit Computer.
  • The Fruit computers were voted "Best Ornament that goes Beep" at the Code Wanker Meet 2008 as seen in an email in Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars sent by the possible chairman.
  • Even though the company's logo is a basket filled with random fruits, its shape holds a certain resemblance to an apple.
