Steve Jobs was back at Apple. He was returning from his long exile and he wanted to meet with employees. Holmes went and took a bunch of photos. Read More
Over the past 30 years, many great things came out of Cupertino and most of them were introduced with fanfare by Steve Jobs. But which announcements were the most important? Which ones shook the world?
I did my research and created a video showing Apple’s Top 10 keynote announcements in all their glory. I couldn’t decide which one was more important, so I’ve listed them in chronological order.
Can you guess which they are? Read More
It seems like a no-brainer today but when Apple launched the iPhone there were no third parties app. And Apple didn’t intend to allow developers to create native apps for the iPhone neither…. That all changed on March 6, 2008.
