On April 1, 2021, Apple will be 45 years old. On April 1st, 1976 it was founded as a computer company by the now world-famous Steves named Steve Jobs and Steve Wozniak. To celebrate the day, I would like to show you a few sources where you can find extensive information about the company, individual devices and processes in the background. There are also sources on individual personalities. Because to list everything here, that would not only go beyond the scope, but also end in a copying exercise, in which I certainly forget the most important things: D
I think the Wikipedia article about the Apple company offers a good overview of the history of today's tech giant. Directly under the first point "History" you will find the following structure, for example:
1981-1984 Xerox PARC, Lisa and Macintosh
1985-1996 Sculley era
1997-2000 The way out of the crisis
2001-2006 iPod and Intel Macs
IPhone and iPad since 2007
As you have probably already noticed, some of the company's milestones are missing - such as the Apple Watch or the switch to the “Apple Silicon”, which is currently used as an M1 chip in the first Mac models. Information about this as well as more hardware and software can be found in the other points of the article. The point "Criticism" alone currently comprises 15 sub-points, which show that Apple can also have negative sides despite all its advantages.
Books about important Apple personalities and developments
Here in the blog, the Steve Jobs biography has been discussed several times. In addition to this, there are also books on other Apple personalities. There are also books on individual developments by the apple company and the background to individual innovations. Here's a list of some of the things we read about Apple:
In the years after Steve Jobs' death in 2011 there were some cinematic arguments with his life and especially with his work in the form of the Apple group. Personally, I particularly like the film “JOBS”, which not only shows the history of Apple from before it was founded to the first iMac in 1998, but also gave Ashton Kutcher a star role. Anyone who only knows him as a slapstick actor will surely be positively surprised by his performance in the film. We have a contribution on the topic for you here: Steve Jobs Film - Which strip portrays the Apple founder best?
