1984 was a big year. George Orwell wrote a book on it, the Aids Virus was identified, L.A. hosted the summer Olympic Games, Michael Jackson's hair caught fire, and Apple released its first ever commercial.
In 1984, the price of an Apple was $2,495. According to Yahoo Finance, if you bought Apple stock in 1984, rather than a computer, today you would have $1.87 million dollars. Just something to think about.
