My Apple History
In the wake of Steve Job’s death, which really still hasn’t hit me, I thought I’d share my technology history with Apple. As far as can remember I’ve had Apple computers (or back then, Macintosh) and products and I thank my parents for that. Dunno what made my dad buy us our first computer from them, but I think I’ll ask him now. RIP Steve – An Apple a day kept those nasty PC viruses away.
1995 – Macintosh LC
Great machine, did everything I could’ve dreamed back then and more. I have very fond memories of playing Oregon Trail and practicing my typing.
1999 – iMac DV (in Indigo)
This one was a hand me down from my sister when she went off to college. This was the updated version of the original imacs and around the same time that those color iBooks and the G5 were getting lots of hype as well.
2004 – iMac G5
When my iMac died, I got the newly released, fancy iMac G5. I love this computer to death and 7 years later it’s still going strong and still looks in fashion and sexy.
2004 – iPod mini
I had a blue mini after I retired my Sony Walkmen CD player. If you would have told me how Apple would’ve completely changed the music industry forever then, I woulda slapped you in the face with a fish. Really though, I would have called bullshit if you had told me that Apple would shape (and had already started) not only the music world, but the business world, and even the design world, how people look at things, what people like in marketing, what is considered sleek, out of all our associations we have today think about how many have been shaped by one company and for the most part, the vision of one man.
2006 – iPod Video
Videos too! Oh my gosh! “How do I download all these TV shows (what’s a torrent??!) so I can put them on my iPod and watch them on there!?”
2009 – iPod Touch
Got this for basically nothing with my MacBook, and then I ended up breaking it a year later 😦
2009 – MacBook Pro (not pictured above)
Going to college! Gotta get a new Mac and it has to be the new MacBook Pro.
2010 – iPod Shuffle
In between iPods I made the decision to go with the cheapest option now that I had plundered all my money away on booze and foolishness (food).
What’s next for me?
Waiting for that iPhone 5 to come out, not too impressed with the 4s as of yet…or maybe the new iPad!…or perhaps a imacquarium?
