Weekend read: How the Mac changed the world

Weekend Read

The Apple Macintosh recently celebrated its 20th birthday. In one of the better articles marking the occasion, Time‘s fantastic tech writer Harry McCracken listed 20 ways in which Apple’s Mac changed the computer industry and the world – and makes a pretty convincing case for each of his points. It has a headline that makes it sound like a clickbait listicle, but it’s actually a great reflective retrospective.
