    Apple Computer Inc. was founded on April 1 1976 by Steve Jobs, Steve Wozniak and Ronald Wayne.
    How will Apple celebrate the occasion next year?

    It'd be cool if they announced colour options like how their first computers looked like. A beige Mac pro with a rainbow Apple logo would be so cool. Or why not a variant of the Apple watch seeing as that's the latest product from Apple?

    How do you think apple will celebrate their 40th anniversary and what are you hoping for?

    Ok, if not that, how about bringing back the colorful Apple logo for products manufactured next year only? Instant collectors items. Ah, the pics from the sheeple who'd try to buy one of each item...

    But what I'd really like to see is the concept redo of the Mac Plus that was floating around a year or so ago, a flat-panel device with the Mac Plus silhouette from the front but all thin from the side. That was spectacular.

    They'll offer free all-you-can-eat apple pie for everyone, but only on April 1.

    There will be no takers, because everyone will think it's an April Fool's prank.

    They'll mark it in a very low key way. The vast majority of their customers today neither know nor appreciate Apple's history.

    Yep. the main page of apple.com will have some sort of uplifting commemorative article, Tim Cook may offer a video to the apple workers at how great apple is, but other then that, we'll not see anything from them.

    40th Anniversary Mac. It'll be thinner than two oxygen atoms put together.

    This would've been good just to support the gay rights movement. Come on Apple. Come all over it!

    With a glass full of the tears of whiny "fanboys" (ex?) who keep complaining about iPad specs, the lack of Macbook Pro refreshes, the New Mac Pro, and the iOS-ification of OS X.

    In forty seconds. Apple is slightly detached from its past, which is odd because it has a strong unique history.

    Yeap, millennials are like that with every aspect in life. But they talk as if they invented Apple themselves.
