Happy Birthday, Apple!

Quick, who was born on this day in 1976? If you guessed The Beatles, you are not only hopelessly out of touch, you may be dangerously oblivious to a little thing called "irony."

Think, man*, think!

No, the correct answer is Apple! Apple was officially founded on April Foolis Day in 1976. After all, Steve Jobs, Steve Wozniak, and Ron Wayne had some Apple I units to sell. While they might not have realized it, of course, they were also ushering in a new era in computing.

Happy Birthday, Apple, and thanks for 28 years of insanely great computing (if you donit mind counting the mid-1990s)!

An extra special thanks to Steve Wozniak for designing the Apple I and Apple II, and to Steve Jobs for realizing he could sell these digital creations.
