Happy tenth birthday, iMac. It’s been a great ride, and, like me, you’re getting better with age.
I remember when the iMac was released, I was working at a retail big box store that sold Macs. Within a few hours of the story hitting the wires (TV and print, mostly,) we had about a dozen people asking if we had it in. We didn’t of course, but it was telling. It’s arguable that the iMac helped kickstart the second wave of personal computers, the one we’re on the tail-end of now.
As a way of remembering the good times, above is the launch of the first iMac ten years ago today.
