This is a very interesting video from Macworld 2002. It is the introduction of the iMac G4. In my opinion, the best looking computer Apple has ever designed. I never really understood why the design didn’t last longer…the current iMac looks like a bloated iPod on a stick to me…and I’ve never liked it. The funny thing about this video is that Steve Jobs actually spends the first part of the iMac G4 introduction describing the iMac G5 almost exactly, then talking about what a terrible idea that would be for a computer.
Yes, there are differences from the machine he describes and what ultimately became the iMac G5…still, it’s very interesting how is opinion changed from 2002 to 2004.
