Apple Inc. is 36 Years Old Today

Here’s a fun fact that you probably didn’t expect on April Fools’ Day: Apple Inc. is 36 years old today, having been founded by Steve Jobs and Steve Wozniak on this day in 1976. In its early days, Apple had quite the bumpy road when they were working to build their operating system and Microsoft was also just getting started with theirs. In addition to that, the founders of Apple had been working hard to release their first consumer PC sporting a graphical user interface on January 19th, 1983; this was the Apple Lisa.

Since then, a lot happened. The Macintosh was released in 1984 accompanied by the historical “1984″ commercial, followed by Jobs leaving the company in 1985. Then they entered the portable computer market with the PowerBook in 1991, but ultimately things went downhill from there — until Jobs returned in late 1997. After that, they introduced many of today’s products including the iMac and iPod, followed by the MacBook, iPhone, and finally the iPad. It has been a long journey to today and Apple’s latest generation of devices has proven to be their most lucrative yet. So the question is, what will they do next?
