    I'm surprised switching to Intel and the iPod was so low on the list, but cool.:)

    Their list I guess takes a bit of a different perspective than I would, but I guess my picks would be pretty similar. My top three, in some order, would be....

    1) Betting on industrial design as important to buyers, which to me is the defining visible difference between Apple and competitors....

    2) The iPod and iLife and the digital life hub concept, which goes so far towards keeping Apple out of the trenches of the drudgerous PC war.

    3) Putting Unix underneath OS X

    Yeah, what's up with leaving OS X off the list? I personally would never have switched if they were still using the crash-prone OS they had on the original iMacs...

    That's what I meant when I said I think their way of conceptualizing it was weird...I think in their own weird way, they recognized this under the Gil Amelio item.... because essentially they recognized him for getting NeXT on board, which ultimately led Apple to Unix. :rolleyes:

    But then the way they put it, it was already after Apple was ready to jump to a new kernel and OS architecture... I think Unix was a better choice than BeOS in many ways, but that would also certainly have been an interesting thing.....

    And the homoeroticism is always tasty. :eek: :) Hot boy-on-boy kisses are always fun. :D

    That is a very good list. I agree that switching to Intel and the iPod should be higher, however, Steve Jobs definitely deserves that top spot.

    Original iMac, I mean 233 iMac Bondi Blue. That machine saved the company.

    That was our first mac too. Still runs great! :D

    Do many PCs run great after almost 7 years of heavy use? lol
