  • Steve Wozniak and Steve Jobs are both co-founders and developers of Apple Computers. They had both belonged to and met through the Homebrew Computer Club. Steve Wozniak would build computers as a hobby. He soon realized that the prices of computer pieces had gotten so low that he could afford to buy them and teamed up with Steve Jobs to build computers. On April Fool’s Day 1976 they started Apple Computers by releasing the Apple I.
  • The Apple I computer was the first single circuit board computer. It came with 8K of RAM, a keyboard and a video interface. Two hundred Apple Is were built and sold for $666.66 In 1977 they released the Apple II computer. The new Apple II was based on the same 6502 processor that the Apple I was built with but the Apple II had color graphics, an audio cassette drive for storage and 4KB of RAM. A year later the Apple II was increased to 48KB of RAM and the cassette drive was replaced by a floppy disk drive.
  • In January 1983 the Lisa is released selling for $9,998. It is promoted as “The Personal Computer that Works the Way you Do.” The Lisa was made to complement the successful Apple I and II home computer. The important quality of the Lisa is that it was one of the first personal computer to use a graphical user interface or GUI. The Lisa also included a hierarchal file system, drop down menu bar, windows, ability to copy and paste, folders, a mouse and icons. The Lisa was a very expensive machine to make. It cost fifty million dollars to develop and one hundred million dollars to write the software. Unfortunately only 10,000 units were ever sold
  • One year after the Lisa was released the Lisa 2 was released. The Lisa 2 had a 3.5” drive instead of two 5.25”. The Lisa 2 cost half of the cost of the Lisa. Along with the Lisa 2, Apple Computers also released the Macintosh. It was an easy to use, all in one desktop computer with a GUI. In 1986 the Lisa, Lisa 2 and Macintosh were scrapped. In late 1985 Apple tried to make the Macintosh more attractive to small businesses by releasing the “Macintosh Office” featuring the Laser Writer and the Apple Talk networking technology.
  • In May 1998 the iMac and PowerBook GB are announced. On August 15, 1998 the iMac is released and becomes the fastest selling PC in history. On February 22, 2001 Apple revealed its new iMac with a built in CD-RW drive it runs at 400, 500 or 600 MHz. It is not until May 2001 that Mac Operating System ships with every Macintosh sold
  • October 23, 2001 Steve Jobs introduces the iPod. The iPod is a portable hard disk MP3 player with 5GB capacity, backlight LCD display and headphones. In 2004 Apple announces that over 100 million songs were downloaded from iTunes music store. It became the most successful legal only music download service in the internet. Also in 2004 Steve Jobs introduced the fourth generation iPod in 20 and 40 GB it has improved battery life and the Apple Click Wheel.
  • Apple is sometimes preferred more than other computers because it has a very flexible screenshot. Items are able to be dragged and dropped much more easily than Windows. The mouse only has one button…why click two buttons when it can be done with one? The graphics are much sharper and more advanced especially when it comes to desktop publishing.
  • The greatest percentage: 26% prefer any model of the PowerBook The least favorite is the PowerMac with Mac Operating System 9
  • Right Click Open Hyperlink

    11. 12. What is DOS??
    12. 13. Microsoft <ul><li>Apple does not get it yet. Gates leased his OS to others, who made inexpensive machines for the masses. Apple did not. Gates is a business man who likes computers, Jobs is not up to par with Gates. The best mousetrap does not always win in the marketplace. And literacy plays a large part . </li></ul>
    13. 14. Gates at the Bottom?.... <ul><li>When it comes to being a computer whiz, appears Gates ranks at the bottom. When it comes to a business man, One might say Gates ranks at the top. Microsoft has little innovation relative to computer operating systems, but when it comes to business, some say there is no equal. </li></ul>
    14. 15. Time Magazine <ul><li>Bill Gates comes under the Times “Hero and Icons” Time speaks of the words richest man and his many charities, but nothing about innovation? But the Time end the article Quote: “ focused, immensely ambitious, scarily determined, often amazingly prescient” . Sounds like a business man, not a computer geek. What does prescient mean?? “knowing or anticipating the outcome of events before they happen”. </li></ul>
    15. 17. Similarities Between a Mac and Windows <ul><li>Both have the capacity of performing similar tasks. </li></ul><ul><li>Both systems allow users to drag and drop. It is just rarely used by Window users. </li></ul><ul><li>Both have the text to audio and command. </li></ul>
    16. 18. Similarities Continued <ul><li>They both have or had the ability to format floppy disks. </li></ul><ul><li>Windows and Mac are both used for net browsing and searching. </li></ul>
    17. 19. Differences Between a Mac and Windows <ul><li>The Mac is more faster and has a better quality then Windows. </li></ul><ul><li>Windows is more time consuming and it takes more time for tasks to be done. </li></ul><ul><li>With Mac there is more freedom in the desktop then there is with Windows, which has a confined desktop. </li></ul>
    18. 20. Differences Continued <ul><li>Macs are able to be forced to quit. </li></ul><ul><li>If a Macintosh user ever faces a problem it is more likely that their problem will get fixed more quickly then a Windows user. </li></ul><ul><li>With Windows it is more likely to deteriorate and slow down and eventually crash. </li></ul>
