The Date That Changed The World

It was January 24, 1984 that Steve Jobs and pals unveiled the Macintosh computer.

This perky little powerhouse had  a 9″ monochrome screen, a clock rate of 8 mhz and 128k of RAM!

And the world would never be the same.


(I never owned one of those originals, but a friend  did and he let me use it every now and then.  It was so much different than those old, DOS machines.)

Living between Aiken & Charleston,, South Carolina, USA, I like to share what I am looking at, thinking about or listening to. I refer to this as the view out my window. Thanks for stopping by.

  1. I was firmly in the DOS hardware world in 84. Took almost a decade for the DOS world to catch up with that little machine.
