The company now becomes one of wonderful growing computer company in the world, and this company also has been the factor of the rapid increase of personal computer. However, before seeing the huge succeed of Apple, we should flashback to Apple Company History. You will find it very interesting in seeing how the forerunners of Apple started their computer company. Back to April 1976, Steve Wozniak and Steve Jobs established Apple after they dropped their college out. Their co-worker relationship started when Wozniak successfully created building boxes to make free phone calls for long-distance. This was the very first step of Apple Company History; since it was a huge invention at that time. The huge invention was because telephone, which was just founded, cost people very expensively. Wozniak himself is a super talented and self-taught electronics engineer; accordingly, his new invention brought him to a great selling of the boxes. Then, after experiencing a great succeed, Wozniak extended his invention again in 1976. He made another box which was called the Apple I computer. This type of Apple computer was not like as you see commonly nowadays. It had no keywords, and had not power supply either. However, pioneering Apple Company History made them sacrifice a lot of things to build it, such as selling their van and two calculators. The van and calculators could raise about $1,300 to set up the real company of Apple. With the huge sacrifice and devoted hard working, they were able to sell 50 units of computers in San Francisco Bay area, and the computers earned $666, which was already huge in that year. Shortly afterward, in summer Wozniak made another type of Apple, which was Apple II. This time, Wozniak's intention was not only to sell computers to local people for simple needs, but he wanted to develop a bigger market for his small computer company. The Apple Company History kept on going. In order to make this come true, Wozniak hired local computer 'engineers' that had enthusiasm and solid commitments to the company. Though he found out that they were high school students, they were just so in touch with the company to assemble circuit boards and design software. Besides, hiring those high school students, he also consulted with Mike Markkula to promote their products. Markkula was a retired computer engineer who had participated in the marketing of Intel Corporation. Two years later, which was still 1978, Apple broke through as one of the most rapid-growing companies in the US. They were spread across the nation through 100 dealers. This succeed keeps on going until right now, especially after Apple Company launched their new type of computer which was named the Macintosh, and other several sophisticated gadgets, such as iPad, iPhone, iPad touch, and the like. And after reading this brief explanation, the Apple Company History tells us why it now has big four operating divisions; they are Apple USA, Apple Europe, Apple Pacific, and Apple Products.
