General Magic was originally created in May of 1990 in Mountain View, CA by Apple veteran Bill Atkinson and Mark Porat. They were widely known for pioneering the "cloud"-based infrastructure and influenced the PDA game with its Magic Cap operating system, that popularized Internet-connected handheld devices, and its so-called "cloud"-powered engine, Telescript, which was made, so that it was universally compatible with various operating systems and hardware of the time. This would be the most well-known logo of the company even though the second and last one was not as notable.



On April 15, 1998, General Magic redesigned its logo to a "radiating GM" as it started to focus on Internet-related ventures.[1] The company would eventually file bankruptcy and shutter in September of 2002.
