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.
After this moment of madness Apple severely limited its colour choices for several years.
It wasn't long before everything the company made was white, with a slight concession to black a year or two later. Only the iPod mini, nano and shuffle have followed the rainbow hues since this time.
