PowerBook G4, Nakano

Aug 23 2002

After 18 years of service, the Happy Mac that appeared upon startup of any Macintosh is gone. Instead we get an Apple logo. Because it’s obvious that an Apple logo better expresses the idea of a properly functioning machine than a smiling computer does. Jeez, guys. It was probably the same guy who decided that a spinning rainbow sphere represents “wait” better than a watch does. Thanks.
