Twenty Years Ago, Apple Acquired NeXT

Stephen Hackett:

I’d argue that this is probably the single most important tech acquisition of all time. What came out of this deal not only saved Apple and the Mac, but made the iPhone, iPad and more possible as well.

I can’t think of an acquisition that has produced greater real-dollar returns than this, nor — more importantly — as much of a groundbreaking product portfolio.
