För 25 år sedan lanserade Steve Jobs den första iMac – och strategin som räddade Apple. Den kurviga genomskinliga plastdesignen på iMac var testen för Steve Jobs “hela widget”-strategi som ledde till skapandet av iPhone.
STEVE JOBS DIDN’T want the photographer. It was May 1998, and he was about to launch the iMac, the computer that would strap Apple in for a wild ride to the greatest comeback in corporate history. The product was due to ship that August, 25 years ago this month. And Jobs had chosen me, then working for Newsweek, to get an exclusive first look and hang out with him while he prepped for the launch.
