    Well I have been off work with this damn flu thing. I was searching the internet and came across this:

    http://web.archive.org/web/*/http://macrumors.com

    It is an archive back to when macrumors first began. I myself think this is rather cool (probably the geek in me:D) and just thought I would see if anyone else thinks it is???

    Since you are off work, you could give us a summary of the last 10 years...

    " Steve Morris writes in with the following link: MacUser article predicted on Jan 22, 2002:

    MacUser sources have confirmed that next Tuesday, 22 January, is the most likely date for the release of Apple's first ever 1GHz Power Mac. "

    Awesome :D

    Well, some of us can still remember that like it was yesterday. Those were the days when you could go to the cinema for a penny and still have change for the bus ride home...

    Wayback Machine FTW. Good thread about Toshiba's new 10 and 20 GB 1.8" hard drives: http://web.archive.org/web/20020206044501/www.macrumors.com/forums/showthread.php3?threadid=1440

    "20 GB is just insane! If iPod comes out with a 20GB HD then all other players would be useless. If Apple can make 20GB work in the iPod then they should do it, I can see the selling point. iPod 4000 songs in your pocket. They could say it holds more data than wintel laptops ohhh ya! After we put 40Gb in iBook and TI book! Go APPLE!"

    "Give me a break. Right now I'm in a hotel room in New Orleans, with my trusty iPod plugged into an outlet and a pair of Advent computer speakers plugged into the headphone jack and let me tell you all that 5GB of hard disk space is plenty."

    "I think I'll get an iPod when they have 30gig HD/color screen and the ability to play avi and mpg video. I have a feeling we may see this in 3 years or so."
    /\ The 30GB iPod Video came out three years after that post o_O

    Also, a slightly relevant picture:
