You could say that the day of this Keynote, was the day I became obsessed with Apple. The G4 Cube fascinated the hell out of me. I still think it’s one of the most beautiful computers Apple has ever produced, and between the G4 Cube and the iMac G4, I don’t think Apple’s design team has ever done a better job than those two products.
The G4 Cube, however, was not a success. The device was underpowered and over priced. It was discontinued in 2001, with a promise that it would resurface in another form in the future.
That form was the Mac Mini. The day the Mini was released, I ordered my first Mac. Since then…if you can’t tell…I’ve been hooked.
