    One of my absolute favorite things to do is just browse the MacRumors Story Archive. If you haven't been there before, or recently for that matter, I highly recommend looking at some of the classic articles and threads that came about with each update. In fact, I just spent almost two hours reminiscing at some of these old favorites...

    Who could forget all these good times? Or things that might have been...

    It's also a lot of fun to then look at the comments from those threads and see what everyone was thinking back then.

    On Boot Camp:
    Or the iPhone launch:
    Does anyone else ever do this? Just like to look back to see how exciting it was back then? :)

    I do this especially at this time in the morning as nothing much seems to be happening on the forums. I like the Bootcamp comments on the article.:D

    Edit*

    I like what iGary says

    I like how 4 years ago we were still discussing the possibility of a headless iMac, (called a $499 headless iMac, released as a mac mini), and on release day, we were complaining about how under-spec'd it was...

    how things have changed...

    ...or not ;)

    Home on iPod would be interesting.

    Some people have hacked it to work by using iPod as external storage. However, portable media player harddrives are too slow for most people.

    And people who don't know any better are still falling into the spec myth.

    September 2002: Of iPhones and Apple Tablets:
    Question: Will there be an iPhone?

    Steve Jobs: One never knows. We don't usually discuss products we haven't announced.

    Question: What do you think of the tablet PC?

    Steve Jobs: We're not sure the tablet PC will be successful. It's turned into a notebook that you can write on. Do you want to handwrite all your e-mail? We have all the technology ourselves to do that - we just don't know whether it will be successful.​

    That's funny. I think I remember reading that thread as it was happening back when I was still lurking!

    Whenever I see posts along the line of "Steve Jobs has lost his mind", I remind myself that Apple has studied the market before bringing a product to the market. Heck, I still can't understand the reasoning behind Apple TV-but there it is. And they probably have the next couple of generations road mapped.

    It "won't sell", and it'll be "killed off in a short time", and it's "Not really functional".


    Hmm, 8 years later, and every kid and their grandmother has an iPod. ;)
