What a load of trash. The computer industry was around long before either company ever existed. If microsoft hadn't used illegal monopoly tactics to take over the market, I'd be typing this on a superior OS.I respectfully disagree. Apple and Microsoft took a far different approach to technology and the PC than anyone else ever did. The reason you have a computer is because of these companies now.
I don't consider MLK a revolutionary. Thurgood Marshall was the more integral figure in getting tangible gains for civil rights.How is Martin Luther King Jr. not a marketing genius? Do you think he could have made it as far as he did if not for a clear message for people to get behind?
Apple did in fact make some revolutionary products back in the 80's. Mircosoft started by licensing IBM software and has managed to drag down the entire software industry while contributing almost nothing of value ever since.Face it. Technology as we know it today, our world as we know it today for better or worse has been shaped by these two companies.
