30 years ago, Steve Jobs introduced the Macintosh. To celebrate, Apple created a timeline highlighting each of those years. Each year talks about how a famous musician, doctor, artist, teacher, or entrepreneur used the Macintosh to do things others thought impossible. It then mentions which Macintosh was released that year and how people used it in their own lives. You can tell Apple how you used your first Mac by answering a short survey.
Happy Birthday, Mac
In 1984, Apple introduced the world to Macintosh.
It was designed to be so easy to use that people could actually use it.
And it came with a promise — that the power of technology taken from a few and put in the hands of everyone, could change the world.
That promise has been kept.
Today, we create, connect, share, and learn in ways that were unimaginable 30 years ago.
Imagine what we can accomplish in the next 30 years.
In addition, Apple CEO Tim Cook, senior vice president of software engineering Craig Federighi, and vice president of software technology Bud Tribble appeared on World News with Diane Sawyer where they answered questions ranging from Apple’s culture, to the new sapphire manufacturing plant in Arizona, to the rumored iWatch and more. Watch a preview of the interview at ABC News.
