In 2001, the iPod signified Apple’s newfound success. Nevertheless, the Personal Computer industry was still conquered by Microsoft, with most computers having Windows installed on them. With the release of Mac OS X and its subsequent upgrades Apple made sure to continue on their hard work to be the most user-friendly and all-around complete Operating System.
Apple redefined the way we listen to music, how multimedia devices change our everyday life, and it continues to re-shape how we interact with our personal computer, every day.
I’m not a born-believer; I don’t think it’s the right way to go, but we’re full of them. You’ll find the extremes on users who will claim that using ”Insert OS of Choice here” is the only way to go because of “X Feature that your OS doesn’t have”. Throughout my life I always had the latest hype in the tech world. I grew to love everything about Microsoft, and I still admire the company for the number of products it put on the table, which acted as a catalyst for competition. Anything from the XBOX, Windows Mobile, Hotmail, Office, Windows – you name it – they’ve done it, and they’ve done it right; or at least they did it wrong enough for someone else to want to do it better, which is the essence of the techworld. A continuously advancing world that would not progress if it weren’t for such visionaries like the Gates and the Jobs to challenge one another.
