With the 25th Anniversary of the Macintosh upon us, it comes as no surprise that the web is celebrating the milestone with retrospectives on Apple.
Over the weekend many sites posted interesting looks back at the history of Apple. Time Magazine posted their Top 10 Apple moments. Read Write Web posted “Mac: 25 Years in Pictures”. Michael Miller recalled the first time that Steve Jobs showed him a Macintosh on his PC Mag blog, and Digg users voted a YouTube video of Steve Jobs demoing the fist Macintosh from 1984 to the home page of the site.
There are actually many more on other Apple sites, so many, in fact, that it seemed kind of silly to post another one here. So let me just say “Happy birthday Mac.” and leave it at that.
One thing is clear about Apple, no matter how big they get, or how much they change over time, the company has had an amazing impact on the industry with products like the Macintosh, and their legacy will live on for generations to come.
