Apple Celebrates 20th Anniversary of Steve Jobs Unveiling iMac

Today marks the 20th anniversary of the presentati of the iMac by the late Steve Jobs, in what has become a defining moment in the history of Apple. Apple CEO Tim Cook commemorated the occasi Twitter today.

"This is iMac," said Jobs, who had returned to the head of Apple as acting CEO just eight mths ago, having been ousted from the company twelve years ago. A large crowd broke out with applause at Flint Center, the same theater where Jobs unveiled the original Macintosh in 1984.

The excitement was centered the fact that the iMac looked nothing like the others desktop computers of the time. This was not a typical boxy mitor in dull beige. It was an all-in-e machine with translucent and sinuous plastic, first in blue leapt, and later in several other colors of the rainbow.

Jobs was as charismatic as ever stage:

This is the iMac. Everything is translucent. You can see in it. It's too cool. We have stereo speakers the frt. We have infrared just here. We have the CD-ROM drive right in the middle. We have two stereo headphe jacks. We have the coolest mouse the planet here. All the cnectors are inside a nice little door, Ethernet, USB hardware. Around the back, we have a very good handle here ….

We will be happy to hear your thoughts
