When I started this website over 6 years ago Apple was coming out of a dark period. This was pre-iPod Apple, struggling to reassert itself as a relevant computer manufacturer.

2003? Pre-iPod? :rolleyes:

Apple had released the second-gen iPod (with Windows compatibility) by the time this website was started.

"GUI interface" is a bit redundant a bit redundant.

So many errors, it's difficult to know where to start. For one,

... while the Macintosh is still important to Apple it is no longer the largest source of revenue.

The Mac is still the largest source of Apple's revenue.

The iPod was released right after Sept 11, 2001 (October of that year).

What is with these self-professed tech pundits not getting the basic facts right? Are they angling to get a real journo job at one of the failing newspapers like the New York Times or Washington Post?

The Mac industry didn't start when you first bought a PowerBook G4 for college numbskulls.
