Apple Inc: History
Here is a look into the history of the largest tech company of today:
The early days
Apple Inc is an American Multi-national that markets consumer electronics, consumer software and personal computers. It is the leader in consumer electronic market lately with a host of devices that have been loved and adored by people all over the world. The company was established by Steve Jobs, Steve Wozniak and Ronald Wayne on April 1, 1976. They sold the Apple 1 computer which was a handmade computer by Steve Wozniak and lacks some of the basic functionality that we count in computers today. Then the company was incorporated on January 3, 1977 without Ronald Wayne as he sold his share to Steve Jobs and Steve Wozniak for just 800 USD. They got support from a Multi-millionaire named Mike Markkula who roped in 250,000 USD into the project and then there was no looking back!
The first products
Later Apple launched Apple Lisa which was a commercial failure but the first computer in the market with the GUI. Later Apple came out with the Macintosh which was a success early but the n even it faded later because of high prices and few software titles.
The not so good time
With the passage of time a power struggle gripped the company where Jobs had issues with CEO John Sculley. The Board of directors decided to oust Jobs from the company and he was released of all his managerial duties. Steve Jobs founded NeXT computer, as well as aquiring the computer graphics division of LucasFilms, this went onto become PIXAR the animation studio that created the popular ‘Toy Story’ movies.
The introduction of power book and the software update known as System 7 ensures new heights for Apple. It was definitely the first golden age of Apple.
But by the time Microsoft had started building market by selling cheap alternatives whereas Apple concentrated on good engineered products that were expensive! This led to the downfall of one of the largest companies. The attempt to save the company saw Apple venturing into many other electrical appliance but they seldom gave any results.
The return of Jobs
Apple realized that the only way out of the situation was to get Jobs back into the company and he became the CEO in 1997 after the stock prices fell to the lowest ever and began to restructure the whole product line. The period from then to 2005 was more of a rebuilding phase which saw major Apple products retiring and giving way to the new line Intel based Apple Products like Macbook.
The iPod, iPhone and the iPad
These three devices have actually shaped the company to what it is today. Steve Jobs had definitely reinvented the company. The prices did not matter now only the quality did. iPod bought everything back to the company and the iPhone launch in 2007 ensured that it had to never look back at the damp period.
