1A New Baby

The Apple II took the company from Jobs��s garage to the pinnacle of a new industry. Its sales rose dramatically, http://www.newbalancefactory-outlet.com from 2,500 units in 1977 to 210,000 in 1981. But Jobs was cheap nike shoes restless. The Apple II could not remain successful forever, and he knew Louis Vuitton Outlet Online that, no matter how much he had done to package it, from Louis Vuitton Handbags outlet power cord to case, it would always be seen as Wozniak��s masterpiece. nba jerseys online sale He needed his own machine. More than that, he wanted a product cheap nba jerseys that would, in his words, make a dent in the universe.

At first Kate Spade Outlet he hoped that the Apple III would play that role. It would Coach Outlet have more memory, the screen would display eighty characters across rather than http://www.louisvuitton-bags-2014.com forty, and it would handle uppercase and lowercase letters. Indulging his passion christian louboutin online for industrial design, Jobs decreed the size and shape of the external louboutin outlet case, and he refused to let anyone alter it, even as committees Michael Kors Outlet Handbags of engineers added more components to the circuit boards. The result was Louis Vuitton Outlet piggybacked boards with poor connectors that frequently failed. When the Apple III michael kors hamiton began shipping in May 1980, it flopped. Randy Wigginton, one of the Michael Kors Handbags engineers, summed it up: ��The Apple III was kind of like a http://www.louisvuittonoutletyears.com baby conceived during a group orgy, and later everybody had this bad http://www.guccioutletpurse.com headache, and there��s this bastard child, and everyone says, ��It��s not mine.����

By http://www.michaelkorsoutlets-mk.com then Jobs had distanced himself from the Apple III and was thrashing Louis Vuitton Sunglasses about for ways to produce something more radically different. At first he High Heel Shoes flirted with the idea of touchscreens, but he found himself frustrated. At Louis Vuitton Handbags one demonstration of the technology, he arrived late, fidgeted awhile, then abruptly High Heels cut off the engineers in the middle of their presentation with a ttp://www.katespadeoutletinc.com brusque ��Thank you.�� They were confused. ��Would you like us to leave?�� Michael Kors Handbags Black Friday Sale one asked. Jobs said yes, then berated his colleagues for wasting his Louis Vuitton time.

Then he and Apple hired two engineers from Hewlett-Packard to conceive a totally new computer. The name Jobs chose for it would have caused even the most jaded psychiatrist to do a double take: the Lisa. Other computers had been named after daughters of their designers, but Lisa was a daughter Jobs had abandoned and had not yet fully admitted was his. ��Maybe he was doing it out of guilt,�� said Andrea Cunningham, who worked at Regis McKenna on public relations for the project. ��We had to come up with an acronym so that we could claim it was not named after Lisa the child.�� The one they reverse-engineered was ��local integrated systems architecture,�� and despite being meaningless it became the official explanation for the name. Among the engineers it was referred to kate spade bags as ��Lisa: invented stupid acronym.�� Years later, when I asked about the name, Jobs admitted simply, ��Obviously it was named for my daughter.��

The Lisa was conceived as a $2,000 machine Louis Vuitton Bags based on a sixteen-bit microprocessor, rather than the eight-bit one used in Moncler Outlet Online the Apple II. Without the wizardry of Wozniak, who was still working michael kors outlet store online sale quietly on the Apple II, the engineers began producing a straightforward computer Christian Louboutin Shoes Outlet with a conventional text display, unable to push the powerful microprocessor to christian louboutin shoes do much exciting stuff. Jobs began to grow impatient with how boring Moncler Outlet Online it was turning out to be.

There was, however, one programmer who was Michael Kors Outlet infusing the project with some life: Bill Atkinson. He was a doctoral kate spade online sale student in neuroscience who had experimented with his fair share of acid. Nike LunarEclipse When he was asked to come work for Apple, he declined. But kate spade then Apple sent him a nonrefundable plane ticket, and he decided to http://www.cheaplouisvuitton-bagso.net use it and let Jobs try to persuade him. ��We are inventing Louis Vuitton Outlet Store the future,�� Jobs told him at the end of a three-hour pitch. Louis Vuitton Bags ��Think about surfing on the front edge of a wave. It��s really authentic michael kors handbags exhilarating. Now think about dog-paddling at the tail end of that wave. http://www.shopkatespadebags.com It wouldn��t be anywhere near as much fun. Come down here and Kate Spade Online Sale make a dent in the universe.�� Atkinson did.

With his shaggy hair and michael kors shoulder bags droopy moustache that did not hide the animation in his face, Atkinson Louis Vuitton Outlet Handbags had some of Woz��s ingenuity along with Jobs��s passion for awesome products. Kate Spade Online Sale His first job was to develop a program to track a stock Cheap Moncler Jackets portfolio by auto-dialing the Dow Jones service, getting quotes, then hanging up. gucci purses ��I had to create it fast because there was a magazine ad free run 2 for the Apple II showing a hubby at the kitchen table looking Louis Vuitton Handbags at an Apple screen filled with graphs of stock prices, and his michael kors outlet online sale wife is beaming at him��but there wasn��t such a program, so I Louis Vuitton Sale had to create one.�� Next he created for the Apple II a kate spade outlet version of Pascal, a high-level programming language. Jobs had resisted, thinking that katespade.com BASIC was all the Apple II needed, but he told Atkinson, ��Since barbour factory outlet store you��re so passionate about it, I��ll give you six days to prove gucci outlet me wrong.�� He did, and Jobs respected him ever after.

By the fall http://www.shopmoncleroutlet.com of 1979 Apple was breeding three ponies to be potential successors to Nike Outlet Online the Apple II workhorse. There was the ill-fated Apple III. There was new balance outlet online the Lisa project, which was beginning to disappoint Jobs. And somewhere off Louis Vuitton Handbags outlet Jobs��s radar screen, at least for the moment, there was a small http://www.christianlouboutinoutlet14.com skunkworks project for a low-cost machine that was being developed by a gucci bags colorful employee named Jef Raskin, a former professor who had taught Bill Nike LunarGlipse Atkinson. Raskin��s goal was to make an inexpensive ��computer for the masses�� Kate Spade Bags that would be like an appliance��a self-contained unit with computer, keyboard, monitor, gucci handbag and software all together��and have a graphical interface. He tried to turn Louis vuitton outlet his colleagues at Apple on to a cutting-edge research center, right in newbalance.com Palo Alto, that was pioneering such ideas.

Xerox PARC

The Xerox Corporation��s Palo Alto kate spade store online Research Center, known as Xerox PARC, had been established in 1970 to Louis Vuitton Handbags outlet create a spawning ground for digital ideas. It was safely located, for Moncler Outlet Online better and for worse, three thousand miles from the commercial pressures of michael kors handbags Xerox corporate headquarters in Connecticut. Among its visionaries was the scientist Alan Louis Vuitton Outlet Online Kay, who had two great maxims that Jobs embraced: ��The best way gucci bag to predict the future is to invent it�� and ��People who are Cheap Moncler Jackets serious about software should make their own hardware.�� Kay pushed the vision Cheap Louis Vuitton Bags of a small personal computer, dubbed the ��Dynabook,�� that would be easy new balance factory outlet enough for children to use. So Xerox PARC��s engineers began to develop gucci outlet online user-friendly graphics that could replace all of the command lines and DOS Michael Kors outlet prompts that made computer screens intimidating. The metaphor they came up with barbour.com was that of a desktop. The screen could have many documents and http://www.cheaplouisvuitton-bagso.net folders on it, and you could use a mouse to point and michael kors tote click on the one you wanted to use.

This graphical user interface��or GUI, owner michael kors black Friday pronounced ��gooey����was facilitated by another concept pioneered at Xerox PARC: bitmapping. Until High Heel Shoes then, most computers were character-based. You would type a character on a http://www.shopmoncleroutlet.com keyboard, and the computer would generate that character on the screen, usually kate spade online sale in glowing greenish phosphor against a dark background. Since there were a Coach Outlet Online limited number of letters, numerals, and symbols, it didn��t take a whole Christian Louboutin online store lot of computer code or processing power to accomplish this. In a Christian Louboutin shoes bitmap system, on the other hand, each and every pixel on the newbalance.com screen is controlled by bits in the computer��s memory. To render something michael kors on the screen, such as a letter, the computer has to tell LV outlet each pixel to be light or dark or, in the case of Coach Outlet color displays, what color to be. This uses a lot of computing Louis Vuitton power, but it permits gorgeous graphics, fonts, and gee-whiz screen displays.

Bitmapping and Kate Spade Outlet graphical interfaces became features of Xerox PARC��s prototype computers, such as the http://www.louisvuitton-bags-2014.com Alto, and its object-oriented programming language, Smalltalk. Jef Raskin decided that these Nike Shoes On Sale features were the future of computing. So he began urging Jobs and Louis Vuitton purses other Apple colleagues to go check out Xerox PARC.

Raskin had one problem: Moncler Coats Jobs regarded him as an insufferable theorist or, to use Jobs��s own christian louboutin outlet online more precise terminology, ��a shithead who sucks.�� So Raskin enlisted his friend Louis vuitton outlet Atkinson, who fell on the other side of Jobs��s shithead/genius division of Kate Spade the world, to convince Jobs to take an interest in what was kate spade new york happening at Xerox PARC. What Raskin didn��t know was that Jobs was Christian Louboutin Outlet Store working on a more complex deal. Xerox��s venture capital division wanted to new balance shoes outlet be part of the second round of Apple financing during the summer Louis Vuitton Outlet of 1979. Jobs made an offer: ��I will let you invest a michael kors hamiton million dollars in Apple if you will open the kimono at PARC.�� louis vuitton store Xerox accepted. It agreed to show Apple its new technology and in katespade.com return got to buy 100,000 shares at about $10 each.

By the time Louis Vuitton Outlet Online Apple went public a year later, Xerox��s $1 million worth of shares nike free run 2 were worth $17.6 million. But Apple got the better end of the Michael Kors Purses bargain. Jobs and his colleagues went to see Xerox PARC��s technology in kate spade outlet December 1979 and, when Jobs realized he hadn��t been shown enough, got Moncler Outlet Store an even fuller demonstration a few days later. Larry Tesler was one http://www.christianlouboutinoutletwow.com of the Xerox scientists called upon to do the briefings, and he louis vuitton outlet was thrilled to show off the work that his bosses back east michael kors hamilton tote had never seemed to appreciate. But the other briefer, Adele Goldberg, was kate spade bags appalled that her company seemed willing to give away its crown jewels. nike free run 2 ��It was incredibly stupid, completely nuts, and I fought to prevent giving Kate Spade New York Jobs much of anything,�� she recalled.

Goldberg got her way at the first gucci handbags briefing. Jobs, Raskin, and the Lisa team leader John Couch were ushered http://www.cheaplouisvuitton-bagso.net into the main lobby, where a Xerox Alto had been set up. Christian Louboutin Outlet ��It was a very controlled show of a few applications, primarily a http://www.christainloubutinshoesstore.com word-processing one,�� Goldberg said. Jobs wasn��t satisfied, and he called Xerox headquarters http://www.louisvuittonoutletyears.com demanding more.

So he was invited back a few days later, and this Moncler Outlet Online time he brought a larger team that included Bill Atkinson and Bruce Kate Spade Outlet Online Horn, an Apple programmer who had worked at Xerox PARC. They both christian louboutin shoes knew what to look for. ��When I arrived at work, there was Michael Kors outlet online sale a lot of commotion, and I was told that Jobs and a cheap new balance shoes bunch of his programmers were in the conference room,�� said Goldberg. One Louis Vuitton of her engineers was trying to keep them entertained with more displays louis vuitton of the word-processing program. But Jobs was growing impatient. ��Let��s stop this wholesale nba jerseys bullshit!�� he kept shouting. So the Xerox folks huddled privately and decided barbour jackets to open the kimono a bit more, but only slowly. They agreed Louis Vuitton Outlet that Tesler could show off Smalltalk, the programming language, but he would Kate Spade Outlet Online demonstrate only what was known as the ��unclassified�� version. ��It will dazzle Christian Louboutin [Jobs] and he��ll never know he didn��t get the confidential disclosure,�� the Kate Spade Handbags head of the team told Goldberg.

They were wrong. Atkinson and others had http://www.nikeoutlet-hot.com read some of the papers published by Xerox PARC, so they knew cheap michael kors handbags they were not getting a full description. Jobs phoned the head of http://www.chevrecakes.com the Xerox venture capital division to complain; a call immediately came back new balance sale from corporate headquarters in Connecticut decreeing that Jobs and his group should Louis Vuitton Sale be shown everything. Goldberg stormed out in a rage.

When Tesler finally showed http://www.shopmoncleroutlet.com them what was truly under the hood, the Apple folks were astonished. louis vuitton handbags Atkinson stared at the screen, examining each pixel so closely that Tesler Christian Louboutin Outlet Store could feel the breath on his neck. Jobs bounced around and waved Moncler Outlet Online his arms excitedly. ��He was hopping around so much I don��t know Coach Outlet Store Online how he actually saw most of the demo, but he did, because wholesale nba jerseys he kept asking questions,�� Tesler recalled. ��He was the exclamation point for kate spade outlet online every step I showed.�� Jobs kept saying that he couldn��t believe that Michael Kors Black Friday Sale Xerox had not commercialized the technology. ��You��re sitting on a gold mine,�� christian louboutin outlet he shouted. ��I can��t believe Xerox is not taking advantage of this.��

The Michael Kors store Smalltalk demonstration showed three amazing features. One was how computers could be nike free run networked; the second was how object-oriented programming worked. But Jobs and his http://www.nikeoutletstore-online.com team paid little attention to these attributes because they were so amazed katespade.com by the third feature, the graphical interface that was made possible by kate spade bags a bitmapped screen. ��It was like a veil being lifted from my christian louboutin outlet eyes,�� Jobs recalled. ��I could see what the future of computing was Louis Vuitton Outlet destined to be.��

When the Xerox PARC meeting ended after more than two http://www.katespadeplaza.com hours, Jobs drove Bill Atkinson back to the Apple office in Cupertino. barbour outlet store He was speeding, and so were his mind and mouth. ��This is http://www.chevrecakes.com it!�� he shouted, emphasizing each word. ��We��ve got to do it!�� It nike air max was the breakthrough he had been looking for: bringing computers to the kate spade people, with the cheerful but affordable design of an Eichler home and LV outlet the ease of use of a sleek kitchen appliance.

��How long would this Louis Vuitton Sale take to implement?�� he asked.
