Apple turns 40 today

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.

The problem is you're focusing on the things in life that don't really matter. When I was a kid I had hopes and dreams. We all did. But over time, the daily grind gets in the way and you miss the things that really matter, even though they are right in front of you, staring you in the face. I think the next time you should ask yourself "Am I on the right track here?". I don't mean to be rude but people like you I really pity. So maybe you could use the few brain cells you have and take advantage of the knowledge I have given you now. Good luck.

Hah! Steve Wozniak recently stated, Apple didn't actually start in a garage at that home. He said they didn't stage anything their or build anything there. Happy 40th iApple iNC.

I passed by an Apple Store myself today and I checked the new iPhone SE. I was comparing it with my 5S, seemed 99% identical. The SE's camera seemed really good though and surprisingly the front facing camera was also really more detailed versus the 5s's front facing camera, even thought they are the same megapixels. In any case, I then checked the Live Photos option that you get with the 6s, and that's when I started to really get disappointed. For those who don't know, you can use Live Photos to create your own live wallpapers (well kind of) for your lockscreen, that's what makes Live Photos cool in my opinion since apple barely provides any live wallpaper on its own. Now here is the thing, on the 6S, you activate the Live Photos with a 3D Touch. On the SE, you activate it with a long press (proving that 3D Touch is less important than advertised at the moment), but you can only do so while viewing a live photo from the photo app but when I tried using the live photo on the lockscreen as a live wallpaper I was unable to activate the live animation with a long press!!! And that's just ridiculous, there is zero reason for them to do something like that, they just publicly gave you the freedom to activate Live Photos without 3D Touch and then they restrict you from doing the same thing from the lockscreen!! That's insanely stupid, not to mention that any 40$ android and above has such a simple feature as live wallpapers and apple just limit you and restricts of such a simple feauture in 2016!!! SHAME on you apple, shame on you x3. Out of all the features you gave on the SE you decided to lock a basic feauture (albeit, a nice one) such as this. And they call it: Special Edition, HA HA. So no happy birthday to you Apple!
