    Apple hasn’t changed much- overpriced primitive software with lots of eye
    catching logos and social messages.

    Apple, for when you want people to know you think you’re a snob without
    having the balls to be snobby.

    استیو جابز و اولین معرفی سیستم مکینتاش در سال 1984 ، خیلی جالبه که چنان
    تشویق و شوری برای این سیستم در بین جمعیت دیده می شه . نشون میده شاید
    تکنولوژی که الان داریم استفاده می کنیم برای دهه های آینده به جوک شبیه باشه.

    I’ve gone through 7 windows laptops in the last 8 years. I still have my
    iMac that I purchased in 2006 and it still runs as fast as the day I
    purchased it.

    How proud can you be when the crowd is going totally nuts about your new
    product. Really amazing.

    Might look primitive today, but PCs didn’t have Windows until 1995. DOS was
    a pain. Can anyone remember DOS?
