The Cupertino-based company announced a quarterly operating profit of $178 million, or $1.00 per share, and surpassed the 89 cents per share anticipated by Wall Street analysts at that time. The company’s board of directors voted unanimously to give the bonus based on the company’s financial performance during Jobs’ tenure.

2. August, 2000: Apple’s then CEO, jobs, demonstrated some of the features that would be found in Mac’s OS X. The demonstration included additions like the “Dock” which stores documents, the applications and the integrated miniaturized windows. Jobs also demonstrated Internet Explorer 5 running with Shockwave and Flash.

3. May, 2001: This was a significant year for Apple as the company (then known as Apple Computer) announced that it will open 25 retail stores across the United States by the end of the year. The stores, according to Apple, were an attempt to show the customers, who had chosen the IBM standard, how easy it is the use a Mac. Two stores were planned – one on the East Coast in McLean, Virginia and the other in the Glendale Mall in Glendale, California. The stores would also allow customers to make movies, burn music CDs, network computers and put digital pictures on a website.
