What is going on with Apple? As of this moment, the stock is up to $505 per share and it is ready to split 4 to 1 at the end of the week! In case you missed it, it was announced that Apple is the first company to be valued at 2 trillion dollars. Amazing. I for sure thought Amazon would take that honor. When I started my career in technology, Mac’s were an afterthought. No one wanted to use them and no one knew how to. It was all DOS, then Windows 3.1. I purchased my first Mac in 1995. It was a Centris 610 and I absolutely loved it!
What’s Going On With Apple?
After Steve Jobs passed away, I was genuinely concerned about what would happen to Apple. I even thought it was over. Thankfully, Tim Cook has been more than a suitable replacement and has the vision to keep the company moving.
Years ago, the only people who used Mac’s were graphic designers. They were very popular at Disney as they used them for all of their graphics and animations. Microsoft basically owned the “work” PC. I didn’t start seeing Mac’s in offices until 2013 or later. I couldn’t even find someone to support Mac’s!
I am pretty sure Tier3MD has installed over 150 iPads in medical practices this year. Not only Mac’s, but tablets are getting very popular. Vendors are now starting to make applications that work with tablets, phones, Mac’s and Windows. Even Android operation systems! It’s amazing how technology has changed, and continues to change.
So…what’s going on with Apple? It’s getting bigger, better and stronger!
