The Apple II took the company from Jobsııs garage to the pinnacle of a new industry. Christian Louboutin Outlet Store ["] Its sales rose dramatically, from 2,500 units in 1977 to 210,000 in High Heels ["] 1981. But Jobs was restless. The Apple II could not remain successful ["] forever, and he knew that, no matter how much he had done Moncler Coats ["] to package it, from power cord to case, it would always be Louis vuitton outlet ["] seen as Wozniakııs masterpiece. He needed his own machine. More than that, Kate Spade Online Sale ["] he wanted a product that would, in his words, make a dent gucci outlet ["] in the universe.

At first he hoped that the Apple III would play ["] that role. It would have more memory, the screen would display eighty Louis Vuitton Handbags ["] characters across rather than forty, and it would handle uppercase and lowercase gucci bag ["] letters. Indulging his passion for industrial design, Jobs decreed the size and gucci purses ["] shape of the external case, and he refused to let anyone alter Michael Kors Outlet Handbags ["] it, even as committees of engineers added more components to the circuit Moncler Outlet Online ["] boards. The result was piggybacked boards with poor connectors that frequently failed. nike free run 2 ["] When the Apple III began shipping in May 1980, it flopped. Randy gucci handbags ["] Wigginton, one of the engineers, summed it up: ııThe Apple III was Louis Vuitton Sale ["] kind of like a baby conceived during a group orgy, and later Moncler Outlet ["] everybody had this bad headache, and thereııs this bastard child, and everyone kate spade outlet ["] says, ııItııs not mine.ıııı

By then Jobs had distanced himself from the Apple cheap new balance ["] III and was thrashing about for ways to produce something more radically new balance shoes ["] different. At first he flirted with the idea of touchscreens, but he ["] found himself frustrated. At one demonstration of the technology, he arrived late, authentic michael kors handbags ["] fidgeted awhile, then abruptly cut off the engineers in the middle of ["] their presentation with a brusque ııThank you.ıı They were confused. ııWould you ["] like us to leave?ıı one asked. Jobs said yes, then berated his Louis Vuitton Outlet ["] colleagues for wasting his time.

Then he and Apple hired two engineers from Louis Vuitton Outlet Online ["] Hewlett-Packard to conceive a totally new computer. The name Jobs chose for Louis Vuitton Sale ["] it would have caused even the most jaded psychiatrist to do a gucci bags ["] double take: the Lisa. Other computers had been named after daughters of Louis Vuitton ["] their designers, but Lisa was a daughter Jobs had abandoned and had ["] not yet fully admitted was his. ııMaybe he was doing it out Michael Kors outlet online sale ["] of guilt,ıı said Andrea Cunningham, who worked at Regis McKenna on public kate spade new york ["] relations for the project. ııWe had to come up with an acronym ["] so that we could claim it was not named after Lisa the nike free run 2 ["] child.ıı The one they reverse-engineered was ıılocal integrated systems architecture,ıı and despite ["] being meaningless it became the official explanation for the name. Among the louis vuitton handbags ["] engineers it was referred to as ııLisa: invented stupid acronym.ıı Years later, Moncler Coats ["] when I asked about the name, Jobs admitted simply, ııObviously it was nba jerseys online sale ["] named for my daughter.ıı

The Lisa was conceived as a $2,000 machine based Michael Kors Outlet ["] on a sixteen-bit microprocessor, rather than the eight-bit one used in the Louis Vuitton ["] Apple II. Without the wizardry of Wozniak, who was still working quietly Louis Vuitton purses ["] on the Apple II, the engineers began producing a straightforward computer with wholesale nba jerseys ["] a conventional text display, unable to push the powerful microprocessor to do gucci outlet online ["] much exciting stuff. Jobs began to grow impatient with how boring it Kate Spade Bags ["] was turning out to be.

There was, however, one programmer who was infusing ["] the project with some life: Bill Atkinson. He was a doctoral student Coach Outlet Online ["] in neuroscience who had experimented with his fair share of acid. When ["] he was asked to come work for Apple, he declined. But then nike air max ["] Apple sent him a nonrefundable plane ticket, and he decided to use barbour jackets ["] it and let Jobs try to persuade him. ııWe are inventing the Cheap Moncler Jackets ["] future,ıı Jobs told him at the end of a three-hour pitch. ııThink LV outlet ["] about surfing on the front edge of a wave. Itııs really exhilarating. Christian Louboutin shoes ["] Now think about dog-paddling at the tail end of that wave. It ["] wouldnııt be anywhere near as much fun. Come down here and make Louis Vuitton Handbags outlet ["] a dent in the universe.ıı Atkinson did.

With his shaggy hair and droopy Cheap Louis Vuitton ["] moustache that did not hide the animation in his face, Atkinson had Kate Spade New York ["] some of Wozııs ingenuity along with Jobsııs passion for awesome products. His Christian Louboutin Shoes ["] first job was to develop a program to track a stock portfolio Michael Kors store ["] by auto-dialing the Dow Jones service, getting quotes, then hanging up. ııI Kate Spade Outlet Online ["] had to create it fast because there was a magazine ad for cheap nike shoes ["] the Apple II showing a hubby at the kitchen table looking at Louis Vuitton Outlet Store ["] an Apple screen filled with graphs of stock prices, and his wife michael kors tote ["] is beaming at himııbut there wasnııt such a program, so I had cheap nba jerseys ["] to create one.ıı Next he created for the Apple II a version ["] of Pascal, a high-level programming language. Jobs had resisted, thinking that BASIC Nike Outlet Online ["] was all the Apple II needed, but he told Atkinson, ııSince youııre Moncler Outlet Store ["] so passionate about it, Iııll give you six days to prove me Kate Spade ["] wrong.ıı He did, and Jobs respected him ever after.

By the fall of new balance sale ["] 1979 Apple was breeding three ponies to be potential successors to the Nike Shoes On Sale ["] Apple II workhorse. There was the ill-fated Apple III. There was the Kate Spade ["] Lisa project, which was beginning to disappoint Jobs. And somewhere off Jobsııs owner michael kors black Friday ["] radar screen, at least for the moment, there was a small skunkworks kate spade new york ["] project for a low-cost machine that was being developed by a colorful ["] employee named Jef Raskin, a former professor who had taught Bill Atkinson. michael kors outlet ["] Raskinııs goal was to make an inexpensive ııcomputer for the massesıı that High Heel Shoes ["] would be like an applianceııa self-contained unit with computer, keyboard, monitor, and Louis Vuitton Outlet ["] software all togetherııand have a graphical interface. He tried to turn his barbour factory outlet store ["] colleagues at Apple on to a cutting-edge research center, right in Palo Michael Kors Handbags sale ["] Alto, that was pioneering such ideas.

Xerox PARC

The Xerox Corporationııs Palo Alto Research gucci bags ["] Center, known as Xerox PARC, had been established in 1970 to create free run 2 ["] a spawning ground for digital ideas. It was safely located, for better Nike Free 3.0 ["] and for worse, three thousand miles from the commercial pressures of Xerox kate spade online sale ["] corporate headquarters in Connecticut. Among its visionaries was the scientist Alan Kay, Moncler Coats ["] who had two great maxims that Jobs embraced: ııThe best way to Louis Vuitton ["] predict the future is to invent itıı and ııPeople who are serious ["] about software should make their own hardware.ıı Kay pushed the vision of kate spade new york ["] a small personal computer, dubbed the ııDynabook,ıı that would be easy enough for children to use. So Xerox PARCııs engineers began to develop user-friendly graphics that could replace all of the command lines and DOS prompts that made computer screens intimidating. The metaphor they came up with was that of a desktop. The screen could have many do*****ents and folders on it, and you could use a mouse to point and click on the one you wanted to use.

This graphical user interfaceııor GUI, pronounced ııgooeyııııwas facilitated by another concept pioneered at Xerox PARC: bitmapping. Until then, most computers were character-based. You would type a character on a keyboard, and the computer would generate that character on the screen, usually in glowing greenish phosphor against a dark background. Since there were a limited number Michael Kors Black Friday Sale ["] of letters, numerals, and symbols, it didnııt take a whole lot of computer code or processing power to accomplish this. In a bitmap system, on the other hand, each and christian louboutin outlet ["] every pixel on the screen is controlled by bits in the computerııs Coach Outlet Store Online ["] memory. To render something on the screen, such as a letter, the Kate Spade Outlet Online ["] computer has to tell each pixel to be light or dark or, Louis Vuitton Outlet Handbags ["] in the case of color displays, what color to be. This uses Kate Spade Outlet ["] a lot of computing power, but it permits gorgeous graphics, fonts, and michael kors hamiton ["] gee-whiz screen displays.

Bitmapping and graphical interfaces became features of Xerox PARCııs prototype Louis Vuitton Handbags ["] computers, such as the Alto, and its object-oriented programming language, Smalltalk. Jef ["] Raskin decided that these features were the future of computing. So he nba jerseys ["] began urging Jobs and other Apple colleagues to go check out Xerox ["] PARC.

Raskin had one problem: Jobs regarded him as an insufferable theorist or, Moncler Coats ["] to use Jobsııs own more precise terminology, ııa shithead who sucks.ıı So Christian Louboutin Outlet Store ["] Raskin enlisted his friend Atkinson, who fell on the other side of ["] Jobsııs shithead/genius division of the world, to convince Jobs to take an Louis Vuitton Handbags outlet ["] interest in what was happening at Xerox PARC. What Raskin didnııt know Michael Kors Purses ["] was that Jobs was working on a more complex deal. Xeroxııs venture michael kors hamilton tote ["] capital division wanted to be part of the second round of Apple kate spade outlet ["] financing during the summer of 1979. Jobs made an offer: ııI will ["] let you invest a million dollars in Apple if you will open Michael Kors Handbags Black Friday Sale ["] the kimono at PARC.ıı Xerox accepted. It agreed to show Apple its kate spade outlet online ["] new technology and in return got to buy 100,000 shares at about Cheap Moncler Jackets ["] $10 each.

By the time Apple went public a year later, Xeroxııs $1 new balance ["] million worth of shares were worth $17.6 million. But Apple got the christian louboutin outlet online ["] better end of the bargain. Jobs and his colleagues went to see Louis Vuitton Sale ["] Xerox PARCııs technology in December 1979 and, when Jobs realized he hadnııt High Heel Shoes ["] been shown enough, got an even fuller demonstration a few days later. ["] Larry Tesler was one of the Xerox scientists called upon to do Coach Outlet ["] the briefings, and he was thrilled to show off the work that new balance shoes outlet ["] his bosses back east had never seemed to appreciate. But the other Louis Vuitton ["] briefer, Adele Goldberg, was appalled that her company seemed willing to give Louis Vuitton Outlet ["] away its crown jewels. ııIt was incredibly stupid, completely nuts, and I kate spade ["] fought to prevent giving Jobs much of anything,ıı she recalled.

Goldberg got her kate spade bags ["] way at the first briefing. Jobs, Raskin, and the Lisa team leader christian louboutin outlet ["] John Couch were ushered into the main lobby, where a Xerox Alto louis vuitton outlet ["] had been set up. ııIt was a very controlled show of a kate spade outlet ["] few applications, primarily a word-processing one,ıı Goldberg said. Jobs wasnııt satisfied, and Nike LunarEclipse ["] he called Xerox headquarters demanding more.

So he was invited back a few Louis Vuitton Bags ["] days later, and this time he brought a larger team that included Moncler Coats ["] Bill Atkinson and Bruce Horn, an Apple programmer who had worked at christian louboutin online ["] Xerox PARC. They both knew what to look for. ııWhen I arrived Louis Vuitton Sale ["] at work, there was a lot of commotion, and I was told Louis Vuitton Sunglasses ["] that Jobs and a bunch of his programmers were in the conference Nike LunarGlipse ["] room,ıı said Goldberg. One of her engineers was trying to keep them Kate Spade Handbags ["] entertained with more displays of the word-processing program. But Jobs was growing louis vuitton handbags ["] impatient. ııLetııs stop this bullshit!ıı he kept shouting. So the Xerox folks Cheap Louis Vuitton Bags ["] huddled privately and decided to open the kimono a bit more, but kate spade store online ["] only slowly. They agreed that Tesler could show off Smalltalk, the programming Cheap Louis Vuitton Bags ["] language, but he would demonstrate only what was known as the ııunclassifiedıı christian louboutin shoes ["] version. ııIt will dazzle [Jobs] and heııll never know he didnııt get kate spade online sale ["] the confidential disclosure,ıı the head of the team told Goldberg.

They were wrong. ["] Atkinson and others had read some of the papers published by Xerox Christian Louboutin online store ["] PARC, so they knew they were not getting a full description. Jobs ["] phoned the head of the Xerox venture capital division to complain; a Kate Spade Bags ["] call immediately came back from corporate headquarters in Connecticut decreeing that Jobs ["] and his group should be shown everything. Goldberg stormed out in a High Heels ["] rage.

When Tesler finally showed them what was truly under the hood, the michael kors ["] Apple folks were astonished. Atkinson stared at the screen, examining each pixel Cheap Louis Vuitton Bags ["] so closely that Tesler could feel the breath on his neck. Jobs Moncler Coats ["] bounced around and waved his arms excitedly. ııHe was hopping around so kate spade store online ["] much I donııt know how he actually saw most of the demo, Nike Shoes On Sale ["] but he did, because he kept asking questions,ıı Tesler recalled. ııHe was Louis Vuitton ["] the exclamation point for every step I showed.ıı Jobs kept saying that cheap new balance shoes ["] he couldnııt believe that Xerox had not commercialized the technology. ııYouııre sitting michael kors outlet store online sale ["] on a gold mine,ıı he shouted. ııI canııt believe Xerox is not LV outlet ["] taking advantage of this.ıı

The Smalltalk demonstration showed three amazing features. One was cheap michael kors handbags ["] how computers could be networked; the second was how object-oriented programming worked. michael kors hamilton satchel ["] But Jobs and his team paid little attention to these attributes because kate spade bags ["] they were so amazed by the third feature, the graphical interface that Moncler Outlet Store ["] was made possible by a bitmapped screen. ııIt was like a veil michael kors outlet online sale ["] being lifted from my eyes,ıı Jobs recalled. ııI could see what the louis vuitton store ["] future of computing was destined to be.ıı

When the Xerox PARC meeting ended Coach Outlet Store ["] after more than two hours, Jobs drove Bill Atkinson back to the new balance outlet online ["] Apple office in Cupertino. He was speeding, and so were his mind Christian Louboutin shoes online ["] and mouth. ııThis is it!ıı he shouted, emphasizing each word. ııWeııve got Christian Louboutin Shoes Outlet ["] to do it!ıı It was the breakthrough he had been looking for: ["] bringing computers to the people, with the cheerful but affordable design of barbour outlet store ["] an Eichler home and the ease of use of a sleek kitchen Michael Kors outlet store ["] appliance.

ııHow long would this take to implement?ıı he asked.
