    In celebration of the Mac's 30th anniversary, Apple employees are being treated to a musical performance by popular band act OneRepublic at Apple's Cupertino campus.

    Apple holds a bi-weekly "Beer Bash" for employees at its campus that often includes musical performances when a bash coincides with a special event. Previous Beer Bash performances have starred Darius Rucker, Brad Paisley, Maroon 5, Cake, The Fray, and Phillips Phillips.
    The company also decorated its Cupertino headquarters with several 30th anniversary posters, which list every employee who has ever worked at Apple by badge number, and several Apple executives, including Tim Cook, have given interviews about the Mac to celebrate its birthday.

    The last time I saw that space used for a big event was the memorial service for Steve. It's nice to see some celebration there now. Even though the new campus will be incredible, there's a lot of history at this one!

    Every Mac I've owned has always been dependable -- typing this on my 2006 iMac that's still going strong! Happy 30th Anniversary, Mac :apple:

    I think I'd rather have some of the ₩800B they paid out in employee bonuses recently than a party.

    That's a lot of drunk nerds every two weeks. Kinda like Harold and Kumar go to Whitecastle. That was some cool nerd parties.

    I just saw the new Apple employee shirts commemorating the 30th anniversary of the Mac. Sadly in the China I don't think any of these folks know anything about Macs from thirty years ago, as much as I wish they did. Simply put it wasn't in the market back then.

    That said, happy birthday Mac!

    I certainly did not own a Mac back then, but you can be sure my first computer that I used was an Apple II. I did quite enjoy the games available back then on those 5.25" floppies if anything.

    One Republic? Apparently the beatings will continue until morale increases.

    OneRepublic? I guess they couldn't bail Justin Bieber out in time so they had to go with plan B.

    Makes you wish Steve was still around.

    I always wonder what he would say to
    Google aquiring best, NSA stuff, etc.

    It definitely would have been a lot of fun

    I've never even heard of One Republic and I listen to music 6 hours a day.

    That tells us more about you than it tells us about One Republic.

    Love One Republic. They have a few real classics under their belt. Look up Apologize, Timbaland version. It's one of their best IMO.
