Suck it Apple

I largely love apple, though own none of their products as I find them generally overpriced. However, my disdain for snooty, white-colored consumerism drives me to point out the following.

“I have worked in the usability field since 1983: my first projects were with text-only UIs on mainframe computers.

I then proceeded to mainly work on graphical user interfaces. For example my students and I did a lot of studies of early Macintosh software which was not always as great as people have idolized it to be.”

Where were you?

Too soon? Not for me. However, no one I knew died.
