4: Finally, in 1994, Apple introduced the PowerMac, this was the first Mac to be structured on the PowerPC chip. The PowerMac was an extremely fast processor, that had been co-developed with IBM and Motorola. This allowed Apple to remain a high competitor for the best computer on the market. This is what enabled Apple to stay afloat in an already heavily saturated computer industry.
6: Apple began to take a turn for the worst again in 1995. Apple all of a sudden had accumulated to many backorders, and did not have sufficient materials to build them. Apple began to lose millions of dollars and during this time Apple failed to make a profit. Apple also had trouble keeping up with Bill Gate's Windows '95, that had been introduced during the summer of 1995.
8: In later half of 1996, Apple proceeded with a large merger, that would enable Apple to acquire NeXTstep. This program began the basis for Apple's next generation of computers, the OS. This was the start of Apple to again regain a high position in the computer market. In 1997, Apple made an relationship with Microsoft, that would give the two companies a 5 year patent cross-license. Microsoft also paid Apple an unstated amount of money, in order that Apple keep quiet about Microsoft stealing Apple's interface design. This design had brought in great success for Microsoft, while Apple was not even recognized for it.
10: Apple has begun to return to the positive side of their financial difficulties. They have learned from their past mistakes, and have produced many machines that are very competitive in the current market. Apple still remains to be diversified within the computer industry, whether this will help them or not. Apple should not be counted out from the top ranks of the computer industry
