1996 – Apple had been declining in the last few years. With Michael Spindler at the helm and a host of problems with the failed Lisa project, the company had been dealing with loss after loss.

On Feb 2nd, Gil Amelio would replace Michael Spindler as CEO, who in turn would bring Steve Jobs back into the mix and ultimately loose that position to the former CEO.

I love tech history. I enjoy how we evolved from computers that fill a room to computers we wear on our bodies. I have put a full archive of tech history together at Wikazine. You can also talk history at Google +. I am also a podcaster and V-caster at Geekazine and a Podcast Coach at How to Record Podcasts. You can also sign up for a Helpout
