Out of all the nostalgic posts regarding the Macintosh’s 30th birthday, I like John Gruber’s anecdotal piece the best:
For one thing, they [the original Macintosh team] sweated the details. The greatest testimony to their genius is just how much of that original design is recognizable in today’s Mac OS X 10.9. A Mac user from 1984 could sit down in front of an iMac or MacBook today and recognize it as a successor to that original machine. That’s simply amazing.
I really enjoy when Gruber opines on the business of Apple, but I think his articles about the products of Apple are particularly insightful and special.
