It was 10 years ago – on May 6, 1998 – that Apple unveiled the computer that revolutionised the company and marked the end of the beige box computer forever. Happy 10th birthday, iMac.
The five millionth iMac was sold in 2001. At the time Steve Jobs said: "The iMac has redefined the consumer and education computer, ushering in several industry firsts including USB, FireWire, desktop movies, wireless networking, fan-less operation, and world-class design."
But what on earth was Apple thinking about when it released Blue Dalmatian and Flower Power on an unsuspecting world.
