Rejoice, Fanbois, Rejoice!

The Mac turns 30 today and Cupertino is celebrating.  Here's the current Apple homepage:

And there's this, about that (from 9to5Mac):
In addition to interviews with the press, Apple is celebrating 30 years of Mac with a full-bleed graphic on its homepage, which links to a minisite that plots how the Mac evolved over the years. The message says that Apple made the Macintosh with a promise to get “the power of technology .. in the hand of everyone”. “This promise has been kept.”, it reads. The dedicated minisite depicts a (scrollable) timeline of the major models of Mac since 1984, spanning the PowerBook, the iMac and ending with the Retina MacBook Pro and the brand new Mac Pro.
We can't have a celebration without posting this, of course:

The iconic "1984" ad, which just might be the best thing about the Mac, ever.  I'm sure your mileage may vary, especially if you're a fanboi.


  1. Not anything about that Apple stuff (Abbey Road, Helter Skelter, etc)... But I thought you might find this site enjoyable, as he has pictures of radar sites all over. Mostly FAA.

    1. The guy's a good photographer and I spent about an hour there just wandering around. I noticed he billed himself as a radar "Team Chief," and that's what I used to do when I was in E&I all those years ago. It's good to see the AF still has its fingers in the radar pie. Thanks.


Just be polite... that's all I ask.
