Hillarious! All the old Apple websites online here...

I'm probably late on this, but just in case you haven't seen it, check this website out...
http://web.archive.org/web/*/http://www.apple.com

You can type in any Web address and it pulls up the actual HTML archives from as far back as 1996. You can look at all the updates between now and then.

It's kind of cool to see how they talk about the products and look at the "new colorful eMac" ads.

Here's a direct quote from Apple's home page at the end of 1999...!!

"Prepared for the Millennium
When 1999 rolls to 2000, many computer systems will fail, but not the Apple Macintosh. Find out why..."

I've never seen it before, and fun to flip through.

Thanks for the link.

Wow, It is slow to load. Fun though. Although Outrageously filled with question marks.

Yeah, I typed that fast. What I mean by hilarious is some of the stuff you find -- not the site itself.

Here's what they say about iPod shortly after it came out in November 2001...

"Presenting iPod. The first MP3 player to pack a mind-blowing 1,000 songs..."

And they go on...

"The iPod has a large, high-quality liquid crystal display (LCD) for viewing up to six lines of text."

It's amazing to think about how much has changed in just 4 and a half years.
