#apple / Insanely great.

Steven Levy’s ode to the Macintosh published by Wired magazine in 1994.

The shape is now a familiar component of our culture, as instantly recognizable as a Volkswagen or a Coke bottle. But in November, 1983, two months before its public unveiling, I had never seen anything like it. All I knew was its name - Macintosh - and that it was supposed to change the world.

The first time I saw the Macintosh I knew that whatever I did in life, I wanted to do it using that computer. I bought my first Mac almost ten years later and never looked back.
