Here’s a nice little graph to really show the scrutiny that Apple’s CEO Steve Jobs has to the pockets of the little computer that could. It’s funny that as one of the original founders, he was fired in the mid 80s. Then he went on his way to start Next Software. Which in 1996, Apple decided to buy Next Software and bring back Jobs as Intern CEO. This is when his madness began to change the failing company to a cash cow. With products like the iMac, iPod/iTunes and the super popular iPhone, it’s no wonder Apple’s profits have soared!
