Just saw this on yahoo.com:

https://www.yahoo.com/tech/27-apple-...864189042.html

Some of them (to Apple enthusiasts like us) are not new, but I never knew there was a third founder of Apple. There a few others in that slide show that are also surprising.

Ironically, the first bank I worked for, back in the early 80's, was one of the first corporations to order a number of the original Macs, So, bankers did use Macs in the early days!

My dad was a manager for Barclays Bank international. Back in the early 80s (when I was still at school) the bank bought him an Apple II at the time the only two computers in his building were his and Barclays mainframe. I don't remember how much use the apple II got.
He does. now have a MacBook though.
