The Pear Company is a parody of The Apple Company. The Pear Company makes most of the electronics seen in Gabe and Jeremy. The Pear Company is also seen and mentioned on many other shows including Sam and Cat, iCarly, Drake and Josh, Victorious and Zoey 101, which were all created by Dan Schneider. All of the PearProducts were made specially for the shows and are very similar to Apple Products. Like Apple Products, PearProducts are expensive and very delicate. PearProducts were originally rectangular, but newer devices are pear-shaped.
On Gabe and Jeremy, desktop computers include the iPear. iPear's have been seen numerously throughout the show and have some different features. These computers are said to store many MPEG's (Moving Pictures Expert Group) into a single hard drive and have a mixed software between Apple and Windows. It is sometimes seen on the show, that there are icons from Microsoft Windows such as the 'My Computer icon' from Windows XP and the Internet icon, also from Windows XP. The computer also has a dock, but is blue colored and has many different icons from Windows XP. The computers also have applications on the left side of the screen like Windows XP. It has a Shut Down program button. It also has the X button, Minimizer, and the + button on the left side, like the Mac. Jeremy's computer is depicted as an iPear.
PearBooks are some of the most seen PearProducts, tied for second with the PearPad, with only the PearPhone surpassing them both in sightings. As with the iPear, its software is a mix of Apple's OS X, and Microsoft's Windows XP. In looks, the internet browser and every page launched appears to have the OS X look, while the background seems to have Windows XP look to it. With each new generation of PearBooks, the more popular they seem to get seems to get. The PearBook Pro is the current PearBook in production, along with the PearBook Classic. Most characters in Gabe and Jeremy have PearBook Pros. The PearBook Pro, similar to the Apple MacBook Pro.
