The Apple Effect—Five Revolutions that changed your life...

The Apple EffectPersonal Computing





Once upon a time computers were complex, rare and expensive machines that companies—even countries—struggled to afford to build, buy or use.

Two guys in a garage precipitated a shift in our universe to one where computers are simple to use, yet more powerful than many dreamed possible.

The company they started, Apple Computer Inc, has consistently led the way in personal computing innovations and in developing many of the tools and technologies we take for granted.

The Apple Effect is a story of five revolutions in computing history. It is the story of how Apple Computer, over the past thirty years has changed the way we work, learn and play.
