The Mac is 25

It turns out that the Mac is 25 this month, ArsTechnica did a little feature where various editors listed their first Macs.

My first Mac was a platinum Mac Plus, I bought it second hand and bumped the memory to 4MB and added a 20MB hard drive to it. I got Think C for it and learned C on it, not the best environment for learning C I have to admit, but it worked for me. I built an application called HyperWAIS which provided Hypercard stacks access to WAIS servers.
