This week in history. 24th January.
On 1984, this day, a great product was introduced to the world that would revolutionize the entire computer industry.
It was Macintosh 128k,the original Macintosh, a great product developed by Apple Inc. and revealed to the world by the late Steve Jobs, sold at $2495. It introduced many technologies that would frame the modern computers, such as mice, interactive UI, portability,etc. It was configured with 1-bit B&W 9" CRT screen of 512x342 pixels resolution with density of 72 ppi, RAM capacity of 128KB, 400KB single sided 3½ inch floppy disk drive. It is one of the first Apple computers to implement convection cooling. This product upon it's sale, thanks to brilliant advertising skills of Steve Jobs, reached a sale of 70k units within 4 months. This product cleay defined why "1984" won't be like 1984.
Without the Advent of this product, modern computers won't be so much affordable, portable and most importantly modern, as this product inspired many of it's competents to overthrow Apple's legacy of PC, and also inspired Bill Gates to develop and introduce Windows 1.0.
Learned how to draw our own Asian legendary creature from @dactrungart at “Today at Apple”. The theme today was dragon as the New Year is around the corner. It’s amazing how art noobies like us managed to come out with these artworks from just cube shapes, thanks to the simple and easy-to-understand lesson by Trung.
Not sure why and how, but my dragon turned into something looking more like a Barney in the end haha!
Meanwhile, someone’s dragon resembles Angry Bird’s Green Pig, maybe to welcome the Pig’s Year lol! 😂😂
