Which famous computer company was founded in 1976?
Apple Computer Company was founded on April 1, 1976, by Steve Jobs, Steve Wozniak, and Ronald Wayne. Originally, it was founded to sell Apple I personal computers, which had been a lifelong dream of Wozniak. Apple computers were made to be consumer friendly instead of the towering steel machines used by governments and corporations at that time. The company which is currently valued at over $2 trillion initially operated from Steve Jobs’s humble garage.
Apple II was the next computer they released, which became an instant best-seller. The company entered some troubled waters in the 80s and 90s after the departure of Steve Jobs. However, Jobs returned in 1997 and revitalized the company, introducing groundbreaking products such as the iMac, iPhone, iPad, and iPod. Jobs also became the CEO of Apple.
