Light. Years Ahead. By: Jayda Bailey

the only thing that's changed is everything.

The founders of Apple, Steve Jobs and Steve Wozniak, created their first product (Apple Computer) on April 1, 1976, and incorporated the company on January 3, 1977, in Cupertino, California. These entrepreneurs' met the needs and wants of people because people wanted things transportable and also better than what they were getting. they could now also reach people easier thing the technologies which is what the environment needed.

the best way to predict the the future is to create it.

Apple had a motivation. They wanted to become one of the best technological companies and succeeded. Steve Jobs was driven by his desire to create great products that he would enjoy using himself rather than products that would just bring profit to Apple. In 2015, Apple made about $51.5 billion which made profit a but also added a personal touch to things unlike other companies that just want the money. People globally really like Apple products and it definitely satisfies a lot of peoples' needs from all ages. Also, Apple has come out with different features on the phones like 3Dtouch, Fingerprint (to open phone), and more which makes it a hard competition in the phone business plus their iPads, Macs, watches, and iPods. If you invest in Apple, you could make a lot of money and be able to have a good investment plan for your future.
