  • Eight ways the iMac changed computing – I never owned one of the original iMacs (indeed, before OS X I was never likely to buy a Mac) but this was the beginning of the new Apple, one that resulted in me buying three Macs and various other Apple products. My bank account would probably have been more healthy without it!
