Happy 34th Birthday, Apple!

It’s hard to believe, but Apple has been around for 34 years today. On April 1, 1976, Apple Computer, Inc. was founded by Steve Jobs and Steve Wozniak.

The company had an amazing childhood (Apple II, Mac), an awkward adolescence where it nearly killed itself with a broad, unfocused product line (Performa, Quadra, Newton), and then finally straightened itself out after reaching true adulthood in the late 90s and early 2000s (iMac, iPod).

Apple now has a nice family (iPod, iMac, MacBook, Mac Pro, Mac mini, iPhone, and the awkward kid Apple TV) and another child on the way — iPad. It’s been able to become one of the most prosperous companies in the United States in the midst of a recession, and shows all signs of being able to survive into middle age.

Happy 34th birthday, Apple!
