To celebrate their 40th anniversary Apple started the March eventwith a 40 second video. The video is great, you might need to watch it a couple of times to see all the mentioned products. Stephen Hackett went through the video and did a great job annotating the entire video with useful links to everything that’s referenced.
Here’s just a sample of what it looks like but make sure to check out the whole thing.
- April 1, 1976: Apple Computer, Inc. is founded.
- Apple I: Selling for $666.66, this is the garage-built computer that started it all. It lacked the switches and lights of computers that came before it.
- "Bicycle for the mind:" A reference to an amazing Steve Jobs clip.
- Apple II: Apple's first commercial success led to a whole series of computers sold from 1977 to 1993.
