Last week, and 40 years ago, Apple Computer was formed -- and that must've been an exciting time to be Steve Jobs, Steve Wozniak and Ronald Wayne. You don't always get to enjoy things while you're doing them, though, and even as this was happening, Apple was in some trouble. It needed what, by comparison to today, is a pitifully small sum of money, but it was make or break in 1976 -- and without it, Apple would not have survived the week.
Not a great deal happened in this week of Apple history, except for the formation of the company and later its single-biggest financial loss ever. So it's the week of the company's birth and of its near death, that's all. As MacNN slices through the history of Apple's four decades one week at a time, this is perhaps the most striking example of its triumphs and disasters. It's also the week you can see the start of successes and troubles to come.
NVIDIA helped validate some leaks regarding its future Tegra roadmap in a presentation at HTC's Freqs event in Seattle on Thursday. Along with the known Wayne, its codename for Tegra 4, it also mentioned a Tegra 3+. What it would entail wasn't mentioned, but the name implied a clock speed boost or other minor updates that wouldn't fundamentally rework the quad-core ARM Cortex-A9 chip.
