Happy 40th Birthday, Apple! Stay Foolish!



Apple - 40 Years in 40 Seconds video originally show during Apple's Spring 2016 event

In honor of Apple's 40th birthday today, I decided to help celebrate by listing out all of the Apple gear that I have either owned (my own personal hardware) or I have used at work (which was a big Mac shop until the mid-2000's).

Items that I owned have a picture and the approximate year in which I started using it. All of the hardware listed below has been listed in chronological order by the year Apple released it.
