But the iPhone-maker almost didn't make it this far — it struggled in the '90s until Steve Jobs returned as the company's CEO. Apple has weathered hits and flops over the years, from the launch of the influential Apple II to the misguided Newton MessagePad. Apple surpassed a $3 trillion market cap on Friday morning — a milestone it previously hit once last year but didn't sustain. Michael Dell himself once quipped that if he were in Jobs' shoes, he'd shut Apple down and return the money to the shareholders. Here's a look into the history of Apple in photos, from its inception, through its hard times, to the triumphant return of Jobs.

Pickleball courts are taking over old big-box stores and mall anchor tenants. This Richmond Macy's, which is located inside Regency Square Mall, is just one of dozens of malls, former department stores, and former big-box stores across the country being turned into pickleball facilities.

Experts say the boycotts work thanks to the culture wars and panic-stoking online and in the media. Bud Light was the target of social-media outcry in April after it partnered with the trans influencer and TikTok star Dylan Mulvaney. Bud Light owner Anheuser-Busch said that several of its facilities had received threats following the weeks of backlash against its brands. Like Bud Light, Nike also partnered with Mulvaney, but that outrage cycle seemed to blow over quickly. "Well, you know what, the next company is gonna say, 'We don't want to be Bud Light or Target.

Walmart says it has no plans to change its Pride collection following the backlash against Target. Target said workers were threatened over its Pride items, leading it to pull them from some stores. "In this particular case, when we think about security ... we have not done anything in particular differently related to security in our stores," Watkins said. Late last month, Target made the decision to pull some Pride-themed merchandise and remove Pride displays at some of its stores after store workers and call-center employees were subjected to violent threats. That outcry over Target's Pride merchandise comes after a similarly anti-LGBTQ campaign targeting Bud Light earlier this year when the beer maker partnered with a trans influencer.

Amazon, TJ Maxx, and Abercrombie & Fitch, are just a few brands that are charging customers who make online returns.

But the sale came at a time when the bridal industry was beginning to change. While David's Bridal offered some pricier gowns, it was known primarily for affordable wedding dresses, and the lower end of the bridal market had become saturated.
