  • Apple Computer was established in 1976 by Ronald Wayne, Steve Wozniak, and Steve Jobs.

  • After only two weeks, Wayne left the company and sold his 10% stock for $800. If he'd kept those

  • 10% to this day, it would be worth over $60 billion. A few months after Wayne's departure, Apple

  • released the Apple 1. Steve Wozniak developed and designed both the hardware and operating

  • system. In fact, the Apple 1 was the first time in history that a character displayed

  • on a TV screen was generated by a home computer. Only a year later, Wozniak developed the Apple II.

  • The first PC with color. In 1984, Apple launched the first Macintosh. In 1985 something

  • interesting happened. A power struggle developed between Jobs and then CEO John Sculley. As

  • a result of this, Apple's board of directors removed Jobs from his management duties which

  • in turn lead to his resignation from the company the same year. After Jobs left, Apple would

  • struggle financially for many years to come. Meanwhile, Jobs founded a new company called

  • NeXT. NeXT released a couple of PCs but most importantly developed software like NeXTStep

  • and OPENStep. These would later on serve as the building blocks for Mac OS X. Because

  • of NeXT's continued growth and Apple's continued financial failures, Apple actually purchased

  • NeXT in 1996. And as part of the agreement, Steve Jobs returned to Apple. Once he was

  • back at Apple, Jobs began restructuring the company's product line and products like the

  • iMac G3, Mac OS X, iTunes, and most importantly the iPod where all released. The iPod was

  • a mayor success, which in turn lead to the company changing its name from Apple Computer, Inc.

  • to simply Apple Inc. In 2007, Apple released the iPhone and has since become the most valuable

  • brand in the world.

  • Almost every advertisement and all promotional material for Apple's products has the time

  • set to 9:41 AM. This is because on the 9th of January, 2007 at 9:41 AM

  • Steve Jobs unveiled the iPhone to the public.

  • Nowadays it's easy to take things for granted. Especially technology. We use things every

  • day without really thinking about it. For example, when was the last time you thought

  • about the origin of rounded rectangles? In 1981, Apple employee Bill Atkinson came up

  • with a new algorithm to draw ovals and circles on the Macintosh. But Steve Jobs wasn't impressed,

  • he wanted something more. He wanted rectangles with rounded corners. Bill said it would be

  • almost impossible and impractical, but Jobs insisted. So the very next day, Bill came

  • up with a new algorithm that could draw rectangles with rounded corners just as fast as regular

  • rectangles. He simply called them RoundRects. But even though Apple wasn't the first to

  • use this sort of primitive, they are certainly responsible for its use in more or less every

  • user interface ever since.

  • Apple fans can be a little extreme at times. Don't get me wrong, I like that sweet taste

  • of as good Apple every now and then but I mean, there's a lot of other fruit out there.

  • Why limit yourself to a tiny Apple when you can have like a melon! Right? I mean seriously,

  • you can't say no to a melon. Just look at that thing! That.. waow!

  • Is anyone else getting weirdly turned on by this?

  • Fans of Apple the company, can be a little extreme. A Japanese

  • blogger so badly wanted to have the first iPhone 6 that he started waiting outside an

  • Apple store 7 months before the iPhone 6 was expected to be released. I say expected because,

  • at the time, the iPhone 6 hadn't even been announced yet. But he gave up pretty quickly

  • and didn't actually sit there for the entire 7 months.

  • Have you ever read through an entire end user license agreement?

  • That's a rhetorical question and if you said yes, you're fucking lying.

  • There's nothing in this world we agree to

  • faster than this wall of text. But if you where to read the EULA for iTunes, which I

  • absolutely did not do. At the very end, you'll find this clause.

  • "You also agree that you will not use these products for any purposes prohibited by United States law, including,

  • without limitation, the development, design, manufacture or production of...

  • nuclear, missiles, or chemical or biological weapons." Ehm.. I.. I'm not.. I'm not entirely sure how that..

  • Like.. How that goes along with iTunes? But, yeah. It's there! In case, you know..

  • In case you should want to spend the weekend creating biological weapons with your friends and stuff,

  • you know.. Like that kind of stuff. It happens. We've all been there!

  • When Apple first started releasing laptops, the logo on the back was always up side down.

  • Or right side up, depending on how you look at it. It was found that when a laptop had

  • the logo facing away from the user when closed (like it is nowadays) people would attempt

  • to open the laptop from the wrong side. But somewhere along the line they realized that

  • most people aren't actually that dumb so the logo was reversed.

  • With the release of the AppStore in 2008, mobile gaming has become a pretty huge hit

  • to say the least. Still if you're a gamer, Apple products usually aren't your first choice.

  • No offense to any apple fans watching this but it's quite uncommon to see the Apple logo

  • on new game releases. However, once upon a time Apple actually made a video game console.

  • It was called the Apple Pippin and was released in 1995 in Japan and the US. It was supposed

  • to compete with Sega Saturn, Sony Playstation, and the Nintendo 64. There's was only one

  • slight problem, it failed miserably. It had a price tag of $599 and only sold around 42,000

  • copies. But the biggest issue was that the US version only had 18 games.

  • There's a lot of rumors about the Apple Logo and why the company is named Apple. For example,

  • a popular misconception is that the logo is a representation of the forbidden fruit mentioned

  • in the bible. The truth however, is far more unexceptional. Both Steve Jobs and Steve Wozniak

  • has said that the name Apple was randomly chosen because of its simplicity and as they

  • couldn't come up with a better name. At the time, personal computers where not that common

  • so they wanted a name that was easy to understand and not intimidating to the average person.

  • The logo was also chosen because of its simplicity. At the very beginning though, they actually

  • used a logo featuring Isaac Newton sitting under an apple tree. But this was changed

  • because it would be unrecognizable in small print. When they changed the logo to the current

  • design they considered using a logo with or without the bite, but in the end the logo

  • with the bite was chosen to make smaller versions indistinguishable from a cherry.

  • Everything you say to Siri is recorded, sent to Apple, analyzed, and then stored for 2 years.

  • And don't act surprised, it's all there in that wall of text you absolutely read before

  • clicking accept, right? I mean you did that, right? No but seriously, in this day and age,

  • when privacy is becoming more and more a thing of the past, it's sadly not that much of a

  • surprise anymore. So next time you talk to your you phone, know that it's someone's job

  • to sit and listen to everything you say.

  • In 1987, Apple released a series of videos titled Knowledge Navigator.

  • Let's take a quick look.

  • It's a pretty amazing coincidence that exactly 20 years later apple would unveil

  • the iPhone with more or less the same touch technology shown in the video. But that's

  • not why I showed you this. Let's look at it again. It's quite hard to see but the calender

  • in the video says September 16th. Then he asks the personal assistant for a research

  • paper from 5 years ago.

  • Which turns out to be from 2006. That means, the video is set

  • to take place in September 2011. Now here's the thing. Siri, Apple's actual personal assistant

  • was released in October 2011. Only a month after the date they predicted.

Apple Computer was established in 1976 by Ronald Wayne, Steve Wozniak, and Steve Jobs.
