The Day Apple Came

Post by tvguy347 on 12/23/2010, 10:15 pm

I will be presenting a picture-filled timeline of Apple to torture you guys. Evil Let's start...



Established on April 1, 1976 in Cupertino, California, Apple was called Apple Computers Inc. for it's first 30 years. The word "computer" was taken off on January 9, 2007. As of September 25, 2010 Apple has 46,600 full time employees and 2,800 temporary employees. The company has an enormous base of customers and was named the most admirable company in the United States by Fortune magazine in 2008, and of the world in 2008, 2009, and 2010.



Apple was established by Steve Jobs, Steve Wozniak, and Ronald Wayne. Their first computer, the Apple 1, was hand made by Wozniak and lacked basic things such as a keyboard, monitor, and case. The user above added a wooden case and a keyboard. It was sold as a basic circuit board. The Apple 1 went on sale on July of 1976 and retailed for $666.66 ($2,572 in 2010 dollar). Apple was incorporated on January 3, 1977 without Ronald Wayne who had sold back his share of the company to Steve Wozniak and Steve Jobs. The Apple II was announced on April 16, 1977. The Apple II differed from other competitors because it came with colored graphics, which other computers lacked. The Apple II (below) was one of the first desktop computers to use floppy disk drives instead of cassette ports.

By the end of the 70s, the company had a full staff of computer designers and a production line. The introduced the Apple III (which was not successful at all) in an attempt to compete with Microsoft and other computer companies. The three CEO's went to the Xerox PARC facilities where Jobs was convinced that computers would have GUIs. (graphical user interface) Work on the Apple Lisa and the Apple Lisa's GUI then started. Jobs began working on the Lisa, but was booted from the team in 1982 and took over work on the low-cost project, the Macintosh. A war broke out over which product should be released: Lisa's "corporate shirts" or Jobs' "pirates." Lisa won the war and was released 1983 and as the first computer to be sold with a GUI. It was a failure because of it's high price tag and limited software titles. The Macintosh was launched in 1983, and was an initial success, although sales after weren't as good.

Steve Jobs resigned in 1985 after a power battle between Jobs and John Sculley, an employee hired two years prior. Meanwhile at Apple, they introduced the bulky Macintosh Portable (below)

This weighed 12 pounds with a 12 hour battery. Learning from this, Apple introduced the Powerbook 1991. They also introduced the Macintosh LC, a low cost computer that was very successful. Following this success, they introduced the Centris line. But due to the many models, it confused tons of customers and was disastrous. Coming after this, Apple fell hard. They made several failed products, trying to get back up to success. They released digital cameras, portable CD audio players, speakers, video consoles, and TV appliances. The Newton, a PDA (personal digital assistant), was released. It was one of the first of it's kind, although it was problem plagued and was once again a failure. Apple's market share and stock continued to slide.
(Above, The Newton) Apple was crashing. Instead of trying to make another failed product, they sued Microsoft for using a GUI similar to the Lisa's. This lawsuit dragged on for years, and Sculley was fired as CEO, replaced by Michael Splinder. In the 90s, Apple formed a company alliance with IBM and Mortorola, which would use IBM and Motorla hardware with Apple software. The same year, Apple introduced the Power Macintosh, as the Macintosh was becoming an outdated platform. (First Macintosh Power below.)

In 1996, Michael Splinder was replaced with Gil Amelio as CEO. He chose to by NeXt, Jobs' company he had founded, bringing Steve Jobs back to Apple. On July 9, 1997 Gil Amelio was replaced with Steve Jobs. Jobs began to reconstruct Apple's product line. In 1998, Apple introduced the iMac. The team was lead by Jonathan Ive, who would later lead the iPhone and iPod teams. Through this time, Apple purchased many companies to get a mix of professional workers. Later that year, they released iMovie and Final Cut Pro. In 2001, they started the first retail stores.
In 2001, Apple introduced the revolutionary iPod. The introduced the amazing iTunes store for Windows and Macs as well. They introduced the iBook. Jobs had reconstructed Apple, bringing it back up to success. Later, Apple introduced the Macbook Pros, Macbooks, and Macbook Airs. In 2006, the company's computer share surpassed Dell's. Dell CEO Michael Dell said that if he "ran Apple, I would shut it down and give the money back to shareholders." Jobs also introduced the iPhone in 2007. In 2010, Apple introduced the revolutionary iPad and iPhone 4. The iPad, iPod, and iPhone have made Apple one of the most know companies around the world. The iPod Touch is the best selling gaming platform in the world, surpassing Sony and Nintendo. Jobs has been praised for re-sculpting Apple, and making it one of the most talked about and popular companies in the world.

tvguy, while carressing Steve Jobs' huge penis, said quietly "Thank you for creating apple" while proceeding to suck Steve Jobs' cock aggressively. Steve Jobs just nodded, and released the cum into tvguy's throat. tvguy then said "Mmmm. Salty."

You just made my day. And it's Christmas Eve.




Brittany: Well, family is a place where everybody loves you no matter what. And they accept you for who you are. I know I'm going to be a bridesmaid at Mike and Tina's wedding. And I'm going to be anxiously waiting just like everybody else to see if their babies are Asian too. When they find an operation to make Artie's legs work again, I'm going to be there for his first steps. I love them, I love everyone in glee club and I get to spend another year with the people I love. So, I'm good.
Santana: What about you and I?
Brittany: I love you Santana. I love you more than I've ever loved anyone else in this world. All I know about you and I is that because of that, I think anything's possible.
Santana: When did you get so smart?
