R(e)post of the Week: At 30, The Original Mac Is Still An Archetype Of Innovation

27 Jan

All Tech Considered has a post about the Macintosh’s birthday, as well as the Morning Edition story that interviews two members of the original Mac team. They offer insights into Jobs’s goal of making a “computer for the people” that placed an emphasis on making a personal computer that was extremely approachable and did not require reading an owner’s manual to get started. This cornerstone of intuitive design of Apple products is the standard to which I judge all things tech when evaluating them for potential use in the classroom.
