In June 1997, James Daly wrote a feature for Wired titled: “101 Ways to Save Apple“. Jobs became CEO in September 1997 — three months after Daly’s article — and now that Apple is the most valuable company in the world Rafe Colburn has revisited all 101 of Daly’s suggestions.

Hindsight is always 20/20. There was some good advice, some bad advice, and some sarcastic advice. I like number 91:
