Their first product — the Apple I — was invented by Wozniak and hit the shelves in July 1976 with a price tag of exactly $666.66. Fast forward 40 years into the future, and Apple is one of the largest companies in the world. Such a feat was not an easy one, though.
There was even a time — on July 8, 1982 — when Apple's shares were worth merely 17 cents.
Ever since, Apple's name has been a constant in the world of tech. Actually, the company that the two Steves, Jobs and Wozniak, founded was one of the main instigators behind the explosive growth of the computer industry. And that's totally not the single business niche Apple has laid the foundations of or rekindled: it brought new life to portable media players with the iPod, kickstarted the tablet market, and finally, re-imagined the mobile industry with the iPhone. It's the main driver of its revenue and we are sure it's going nowhere.
Here's to 40 years of Apple history and let the journey never end.
