Aladdin Systems, Inc. was founded in 1988 to develop, publish, and distribute software products for Apple and IBM computers. Located in Watsonville, California (a short drive from California's Silicon Valley), Aladdin Systems is known for its quality utility applications and software developer tools. Shortly after its founding, Aladdin Systems teamed up with 15 year-old Raymond Lau, author of the de-facto standard compression software, StuffIt, to further develop this state-of-the-art compression, security and archiving product, and to introduce new, innovative software. Aladdin made its debut in the Macintosh marketplace in the summer of 1989 with the introduction of Raymond Lau's Shortcut, a system enhancement for the Macintosh that provides file and disk management within every application's "Open" and "Save" dialog.
