On Jan. 24, 1984 Jobs introduced a competitor into the field to unseat IBM has the crown victor. Prior to the unveiling of the Mac, a commercial that took the world by storm featuring the future of Apple Inc., Jobs personified the idea of giving IBM a run for their money. External board members fell in love with the commercial and finally backed the vision of Jobs as the Mac became a symbolic factor of want. Finally the day came and in the Flint Center, with nervous executives, a buzzing audience and a very cool looking Jobs – he inserted the 3.5-inch disk into the Mac.
“Hello, I’m Macintosh,” emitted from the bulky Mac. The world cheered.
While the Mac did not immediately unseat IBM, actually the sales were sort of dismal – they did innovate the growth of the GUI and the mouse. Apple Inc. exploded once the iPhone came onto the scene over 23 years later. The world has continued to embrace and devour all things Apple and it shows no signs of slowing.
In the ABC interview, Muir will also touch on the Arizona secret, Cook has been harboring. Cook shares there is a “huge investment” happening in Arizona. Muir pushed aside the niceties and asked directly, if it was regarding Sapphire glass. Cook responded that it does include a “sapphire announcement,” but refused to elaborate beyond that. Especially, when Muir pushes to determine what device the glass will be applied to. The eager reporter states is it for a larger iPhone or even maybe the rumored iWatch.
“iRing,” Cook jokes. The myth surrounding the iRing was derived from Brian White, an analyst for Topeka Capital Markets. White insists Apple Inc. is developing an “iTV” project which would link the controller to a ring, thus the iRing. White also states Apple Inc. will be developing massive screen televisions, something apparently, even Cook jokes about.
