does anyone else think that Apple Computer should be moved after APPLE (the satelite) due to alphabetizing? or perhaps Apple Records should be moved to after Apple Computer due to its greater importance over a non existant article (APPLE)? -mysekurity 21:36, 28 May 2005 (UTC)

I think the nonexistent article should be last. However, Apple Computer should be first (after the fruit). I'm even in favor of putting
For the brand of computers, see Apple computer.
on the page for the fruit. HereToHelp 11:49, 16 October 2005 (UTC)

Old cut-and-paste moves affecting this page[edit]


Ever time I search apple it come up with the fruit so can some make the disambiguation as the search page.

You would need to discuss this on a wider level as the fruit is obviously the primary usage for the term. If you think a move is in order then set up a discussion and file a request at WP:RM. Keith D (talk) 20:42, 6 December 2008 (UTC)

dual primary topics[edit]

As followed on iOS it seems sensible to have two primary topics here, the fruit and the computer company. -- Eraserhead1 <talk> 09:12, 25 June 2011 (UTC)

iOS is not even an example of primary topic disambiguation, which only applies where the page includes "(disambiguation)" in the title -- indicating that the primary topic is at the base name. iOS is an example where the most common uses are placed at the top of an otherwise ordinary disambiguation page. That is not primary topic disambiguation. On this page, the apple corporation is already at the top of the list after the primary topic. olderwiser 12:54, 25 June 2011 (UTC)

merge The Apples to here[edit]

Same as The Apple was merged here, The Apples should also be merged here. That's just partial disambiguation. (talk) 04:55, 15 June 2012 (UTC)

That's not partial disambiguation. Since the set of things ambiguous with "The Apples" (i.e., that users my seek by typing "The Apples" into the search box), leaving them separate seems appropriate and best for the readers. -- JHunterJ (talk) 11:05, 15 June 2012 (UTC)
