Happy 30th Birthday, MacIntosh!

Today we celebrate a milestone in personal computing.  Today is the 30th Anniversary of the release of the Apple MacIntosh.  In case you didn't know, the MacIntosh was "the first mass-market personal computer featuring a graphical user interface and mouse."  It was from this point that the game was literally changed.  Now, I've been known to give Macs (and Mac Users) shit from time to time but it's all in good fun.  Truth be told, all of my early computing experiences were on Apple computers.  The MacIntosh has the honor of being the first computer I learned networking on.

Please don't sue me, Apple.  Just tell me I need to take this down and I will.  Promise. :)

And hey, if you have no idea the kind of buzz that surrounded the MacIntosh when it was first released here's a nostalgic commercial that ran during Super Bowl XVIII:
