I really hate it when people misuse "factoid." I don't know why it bothers me so much (a lot of similar stuff doesn't), but it definitely pushes my buttons. :D

I think it's funny how Dell was a big customer for WebObjects back in the day. Too bad Apple let the technology die on the vine, they're the primary user these days, if not the sole user.

20%... wow... I dont know much about the very early days of apple it seems! :( Funny how so many of the older technologies were invented for apple by other big companies, or invented at apple and used by someone else.

I liked the old Duo's, supper portable!

10% Here.
However, after seeing the questions and answers I'm going to think very poorly of the social life of anyone scoring over 30%. Actually if you score 30% I may not think that much of you ;-)

I got 0 correct! :o

Oh well... I don't much about the early days of Apple anyway. If they asked questions from the days of the iMac G3 and up, then I may do better. I realize there were a couple, but I sitll got them wrong. I'm much more of a modern Mac user. ;)

Hmmmm two correct, using nothing more than lucky guesses, guess I'm not much of a Apple "Geek" :rolleyes:

Wow, best that's posted so far. 50%. Surprised I got some of them too, they were at least almost guesses.

30%...

not to hard to figure Jobs is a democrat (or at least not a republican), the case color question was easy enough (just pick the earliest model, the colors were listed), and I just happened to remember the first cinema display because I was in the market for one (but never purchased it). Not a bad display, and had composite ins, which I wish more monitors would do...
