Apple History: the Home Computer to the IPod, IPhone and IPad

Steve Jobs died today and to his family and friends I offer my condolences. In honor of his achievements as the CEO of Apple, I have included a video that offers a brief overview of Apple's history and accomplishments. In my not so humble opinion, Steve Jobs was the most charismatic CEO of any company, and had the ability to influence people with the company's products.

Apple has never really been that innovative from a technology perspective. Although their user interfaces and product designs have always been considered the best, and their marketing campaigns were genius.

Under Steve Jobs they were able to create products that popularized technologies. For example there were several other MP3 players years before the iPod, there were also several other smartphones years before the iPhone.
