In the lead up to the thirtieth anniversary of the founding of Apple Computer, Apple’s own Press Releases concluded with the following paragraph;
“Apple ignited the personal computer revolution in the 1970s with the Apple II and reinvented the personal computer in the 1980s with the Macintosh. Today, Apple continues to lead the industry in innovation with its award-winning desktop and notebook computers, OS X operating system, and iLife and professional applications. Apple is also spearheading the digital music revolution with its iPod portable music players and iTunes online music store.”
To celebrate the thirty-year history of Apple Computer, starting with the original Apple I through to the latest Intel-based Macs of today, along with other memorable products like the LaserWriter, Newton and, of course, the iPod, Nicholas Pyers will give a series of presentations remembering this remarkable history using Apple’s own print and video advertisements.
Let’s remember all the times
that Apple helped set us free,
allowing us to think differently
and imagine all the possibilities…
