    "Thank you for the great work. The newly painted room looks fantastic. Tom notices everything so that if there is a chance I might want something additional I can have them do it. I feel very comfortable with the guys, and as usual your company came through, does what I need done, and does not disappoint me."

  • Apple Keynotes…15 Years of Innovation

    [caption id="attachment_6781" align="alignleft" width="259" caption="Apple...15 Years in the Making"][/caption]

    Apple recently held their annual keynote conference, showcasing what they have in store this and next year. Some of the news was a new, bigger and faster iPhone 5, as well as a redesign of the MacBook Pro (think MacBook Air...but thinner...if that's possible). This got me thinking of the past keynotes from Apple. Take a look at this great article showcasing the past 15 years of Apple:

    1997
    At this point, Steve Jobs was merely an advisor to Apple, not its CEO. He spoke at the end of a WWDC held at the San Jose Convention Center, on May 16, and rather than unveiling any new products, he spoke extemporaneously and took questions from the crowd. But what he did introduce–effectively, a new strategy for the company, best summed up by the five words “focus is about saying no”–was at least as important as any gizmo which he could have announced.
    Sadly–okay, it isn’t actually all that sad–I can’t find any video of WWDC 1997′s actual keynote, which was led by Apple CEO Dr. Gil Amelio, most famous for his brief and hapless tenure at the top.

    1998
    On May 11, 1998, Interim CEO Jobs gave an opening speech that was closer to the WWDC keynotes that would come. But Apple was still hurting, and even modest good news–lower employee attrition, better sales at CompUSA, two profitable quarters in a row–sounded rosy. Oddly, Apple had announced the first iMac a few days before WWDC, so Jobs recapped the news and then talked mostly about matters relating to QuickTime and Mac OS–important technical stuff.
