Apple is celebrating its 29th birthday today.

The company was initiated on April 1, 1976 when Steve Jobs was just 21, and co-founder Steve Wozniak was 25.

April 1 is an auspicious date; Otto von Bismarck – Germany's Iron Chancellor between 1870 and 90 who unified the German states into one empire under Prussian leadership – was also born on April 1.
