Apple Stock or Apple Product?

A simple exploration into the world of missed opportunities.

Installation

pip install -r requirements.txt

Creating the Dataset

python scrape_everymac.py
python ipod_or_stock.py

The output will be apple-specs-with-current.json which includes the original prices for each item as well as how many shares that item was worth on release day.

Thanks

Big thanks to http://www.everymac.com for the data. Also, if you ever need to parse HTML in Python, BeautifulSoup is amazing.

apple-specs.json contains detailed specs for almost every Apple product released in the last thirteen years. I hope someone finds it useful.
