In case you missed it, yesterday was the thirtieth anniversary of the launch of the Apple Lisa, which at the time was considered a revolutionary computer with its mouse controlled graphical user interface featuring icons, pull-down-menus, and overlapping windows – Although the Xerox Star preceded it, but as usual, Xerox did fuck all with it, so Steve hired all the people from PARC that had developed the technology. Anyway, I know all about this shit, ‘cos I worked on the launch, which was quite successful… Until people saw the price… Ten thousand fucking dollars! Which is about twenty five thousand in today’s money! Oh, and the 5MHz processor meant you could make your dinner while you waited for the fucker to open a file! A year later, the MAC was launched and the Lisa disappeared forever.
Shit... That's worth $25K of anyone's money!
