Happy birthday, Apple. (For real!)

Yes, this is not a joke: Apple, Inc. was founded 34 years ago today, on April 1, 1976.

Despite persistent death knells from industry pundits in the 1990s, the company is back and better than ever, not to mention more powerful than ever. The new iPad looks like it’ll be another electronic-world-changing device.

(Can’t grow food in it, but it’s cool otherwise.)
