Apple's 30th Anniversary

It was 30 years that Apple has founded on 1 April 2006.

1976 - 2006

It was long time than I expected and compared with Microsoft.
As you know, Apple is a computer manufacturer, MS is a software company. Two companies have helped each other and have competitive relationship.
Two companies are developing different operating system but MS is developing software for MAC.

It is interesting that the first version of MS Excel was for Mac and Internet Explorer was the official web browser of Mac before releasing Safari that is Apple's web browser.

But now, two companies compete more than before. Apple is also developing a office software and web browser

For latest 10 years, Apple had been at a crisis so Steve Jobs could return with his company NEXT and write successful stories with Mac OSX and iMac series.

It may be said that Apple is at the turning point in success of iPod and iTunes Music Store. As a result, Apple is not only a computer manufacturer but also a CE maker & contents provider.

Apple had released the 20th anniversary model of Mac, but there is no news about the 30th anniversary model. I am looking forward to new present from Apple.

I expect that Apple leads technology of computer & CE device areas by its bright ideas and makes computing environment be easier and comfortable.
