Happy 31st birthday Macintosh

Today, 31 years ago Apple launched the first Macintosh personal computer.

The Macintosh has been one of Apple’s most game changers. Today most of personal computers use what the Macintosh brought into the forefront of computing: Mice, Graphical User Interface, and Copy/Paste. Without Apple, Microsoft would never of created or released Windows as DOS was the money maker for them.

Xerox was the one who created the mouse and the GUI, but they never thought anyone would use it. Apple’s $1 million dollar gift to Xerox Parc Place changes all of that.

You the consumer is the winner – so show Apple some well deserved love and buy a new Macintosh this year. You too Windows, Android, and Linux fanboys!
