Prior to the Mac they were just a.n.other computer manufacturer.

that the anniversary of the Mac was two years ago? What is this the anniversary of then?
My iPod is pretty, but too small.
Ridley Scott did an awesome advert involving a woman running into a big brother type complex and flinging a big hammer at the screen.
Prior to creating the Macintosh, Apple weren't much different from any other computer manufacturer out there, that's all. The Mac marked their innovation.
My copy of Commodore 64 Dragon Wars was also available on Apple ][e, I remember, and I think the early PCs around at that time also.
so what is thirty years old now then?
started in 1976.
I'm still confused, but I'm not sure how much more I need to know...!
"Mac" is a type of computer made by Apple.
Apple is 30 years old today.
The Macintosh is only about 22 years old.
No different from Ford's age comparative to the Sierra, I guess :D
I thought you were saying that the 30 year anniversary of the Mac was two years before the 30 year anniversary of Apple. Now I see. Is this the most boring thread ever? Curse you, Theo, for making me dull.
It's your fault for not being able to realise you're not about to be 34 this year, Shirley?
is wearing a party hat today.
As I am typing on a broken ibook.
The screen broke, so im using an external monitor thing.
Happy birthday apple.
