Happy 5th Birthday iPhone!

Posted by Jeff Campbell in "Apple iPhone, iPod Touch, iPad" @ 03:00 AM

"It's kind of hard to believe the iPhone is already approaching its fifth birthday this Friday. It feels like just last year that Apple unveiled the iPhone 2G, which undoubtedly revolutionized the way we look at smartphones (and even the operating systems that power them) today."

5 Years already, and it seems like only yesterday doesn't it? Make sure you check out the info graphic in case you want to see the comparison between the different versions. Happy birthday iPhone, looking forward to this fall!

Happy 35th Birthday Apple II

"Thirty-five years ago, on April 16 and 17, 1977, more than twelve thousand proto-geeks flooded into San Francisco's Civic Auditorium."

They were all excited about this new thing called the personal computer! The Apple II to be exact. Interesting story about the launch of the Apple II if you are into history, well worth the read.

Happy Birthday Mac App Store!

"Today marks the one year milestone for the Mac App Store. In 2011, Apple unveiled the Mac App Store on January 6th, 2011 with over 1,000 apps available at launch. Just like this year, CES was starting to ramp up. Apple stole the early thunder by announcing its app distribution system for OS X."

I've slowly gotten used to purchasing my apps this way, which was quite a change from the usual drop into the store and pickup a box with a cd in it routine. And I like this much better. What are your thoughts?

"Today On October 23, a full ten years will have transpired since the very first iPod was announced in 2001."

What a fantastic ride the last 10 years have been yes? I remember the first time I picked one up and started using it, and how it really brought music into my life like never before. What are your thoughts on the last 10 years since this incredible device was introduced?

Happy 10th Anniversary Apple Retail Stores

Posted by Jeff Campbell in "Apple News" @ 01:00 PM

http://www.digitaltrends.com/mobile...th-anniversary/

"Apple opened its first two retail stores ten years ago today, with two locations in Glendale, California, and McClean, Virginia. At the time, most industry watchers-myself included-thought Apple's venture into retailing was a poor choice: why should the company pay for premium space in upscale shopping centers when it commanded only a minuscule portion of the PC market-and particularly when computer makers like Gateway were painfully discovering that making computers and selling computers in a store were completely different things?"

It sounds like those consultants that Apple hired early on to determine the mistakes Gateway made paid off. The retail stores for Apple have been a big hit and quite the showcase for the products from Apple. I love going to the Apple Store as the experience is like none other. Well, Starbucks is a pretty good experience too, I guess top notch customer service pays off.

Jobs and Wozniak had this idea for a company...well thats the start of the story that began 35 years ago today. For some of the key moments in the history of Apple, 9to5 Mac has a story here that details some of them. So enjoy the read and once again, Happy Birthday Apple!

Happy 10th Birthday OS X

"As Macworld notes, today is the 10th anniversary of the release of MacOSX. As a wayback machine experience, here's the Key(note)master introducing it at Macworld 2000."

My first glimpse was on an iMac G4, which I still have and is still cooking along.
