The humble beginnings of what was to become one of the largest corporations in history started on 4/1/19. Three partners, Steve Wozniak, Steve Jobs, and Ronald Wayne, established The Apple company to sell The Apple I, a personal Computer kit which was designed and hand-manufactured exclusively by Steve Wozniak. It was introduced to the world via The Homebrew Computer Club and was sold as a motherboard along with a CPU, RAM, and The most basic textual video chips. Today, this is not even considered to be a complete computer. The Apple I went on the market in July 1976 and was sold for $666.66.
On January 1, 1977 Apple became incorporated, sans Ronald Wayne. Wayne had sold his shares in Apple back to Jobs and Wozniak for $800. During The first five years in business, Apple revenues doubled every four months, marking an average growth rate just at 700%.
Wozniak then created The Apple II. It was presented at the first West Coast Computer Faire on April 16, 1977. Unlike its competition, The Commodore PET and The Tandy TRS-80, The Apple II boasted character cell-based color graphics as well as open architecture. The Apple I had used regular cassette tapes for storage; with The new Apple II came The introduction of a floppy disk drive and interface called The Disk II. The Apple II was chosen to be the desktop Computer platform for the first "killer app" of the business world, a spreadsheet program called VisiCalc. The addition of VisiCalc catapulted The Apple II to The number one spot, far ahead of Commodore and Tandy.
As The 1970s came to a close, Apple had assembled an entire production line and a full staff of Computer designers. In December 1980, Apple went public and began selling shares of stock at $22 per share. Not since The Henry Ford Company in 1956 had an IPO generated as much capital. More millionaires were instantly created by Apple than by any other company in history.
In 1984 Apple introduced The Macintosh, The very first personal Computer ever to be sold with no programming language whatsoever. Its public debut came by way of a $1.5 million commercial from director Ridley Scott which aired during the third quarter of Super Bowl XVIII on January 22, 1984. After a strong start, its sales became less than impressive.
In 1985, following creative and personal differences with Apple CEO John Sculley, Steve Jobs left The Company and founded NeXT Inc. Improvements and updates were steadily made to The Macintosh and its subsequent models. By 1990 there was a tremendous demand for personal computers, so when the "new and much-improved" Macintosh models were introduced the public swept them up voraciously.
Fast-forward a decade or two, through steady improvements, innovations, and an ever-expanding world of technology, and every year, Apple have come out with new devices such as the Apple iPhones, the Apple Watch, ultra-slim MacBook, The iPad Air and iPad Mini, and The promise of many, many more new hi-tech gadgets to come. The latest iPhone models, the iPhone 6 and the iPhone 6 Plus, boast 4.7" and 5.5" screens, respectively. They are available in 16GB, 64GB, and an impressive 128GB. They are thinner models than ever before, with optical image stabilization for the camera, an iPad-type Landscape mode, and longer battery life than any of its predecessors. The Apple Watch, is the latest smart device from Apple. The "smartwatch" with essentially the same features as the iPhone but in a more compact and convenient form, acts as a mild-mannered watch as well as a cutting-edge piece of technology.
When it comes to The world of Computer technology, Apple came out strong, with every intention of being an innovative force to be reckoned with, and today, nearly 40 years later, it is clear that they have no intention of slowing down.
