In 1984 from an auditorium in California, Steve Jobs #revolutionised home computing by revealing the macintosh computer to the world. The screen was just over 22cm, used floppy screens, had 128KM of ram and was powered by a 32 bit processor with the price tag a mere $2,495. In #comparison, the iPad has a 24 cm screen while the MacPro starts at 12BG of memory while floppy discs have been replaced by USB sticks or SD cards.
And to celebrate such an illustrious mark, Apple have released the very special Mac 30 mini site featuring a video shot on iPhones. 15 film crews with 100 iphones were dispatched around the globe to document Apple’s #30 year journey.
Apple has become an ingrained aspect to every day living with apps, iPhones, iPads and computers. Across three decades, the mac has been reinvented 30 times from the Lisa, to the iMac, eMac, powermac G5 and aluminium iMac, the iBook, the powerbook and macbook air. The PC is all well and good, but it’s still the Problem Child of today when mac is so user friendly. Many praise Spotlight every single day, but will happily swear at their #PC.
As Macintosh hits the dirty thirties mark, if it knows anything about life (which it does, #immensely), the Apple will continue to hit the ground #running, knowing that The 30s are the new 20s.
Happy Birthday Mac. May you live #forever!
