Apples Year in Review: iPhone 3GS, Snow Leopard, Jobs Comeback

by Nicholas Kolakowski
Apple managed to grow and profit in 2009 despite the global recession dragging on the economy. Although pundits questioned whether the company would be able to maintain competitive momentum during CEO Steve Jobs' six-month sick leave, the company continued to post strong quarterly numbers for product lines such as the iPhone 3GS, the Mac and the iPod. In 2010, Apple plans to expand its retail footprint and may release a much-rumored tablet PC. The following presentation hits some of the high and low points of Apple's 2009, from product launches to the return of Steve Jobs.
