Graphics, User Interfaces Sometimes, you wake up in the morning, check your RSS feeds, and you know you just hit the jackpot. From the AT&T archives comes a video and description of Blit, a UNIX graphical user interface from 1982, on a 800x1024 portrait display. It employs a three button mouse, right-click context menus, multiple windows, and lots, lots more. It was developed at Bell Labs, and is yet another case that illustrates how the technology industry doesn't work in a vacuum.

its not you.. the bashing is obvious, especially in the phone area. Most have never owned an apple product but they just KNOW the junk they bought is superior, just ignore the malware and random freezing. I used to be like them avoiding and bashing apple. After using apple products I can appreciate a quality stable design.

Feel free to vote me down now :}

Because you used to bash Apple without having taken a deep look at their products first, does not mean that everyone else does so...

The reason I say this is that I have met more than one Apple fan who cannot grasp the concept that even after using the company's products, I can still prefer alternatives for their respective strengths.

Not idiots, even, they are all pretty very smart persons, that are very competent in their respective areas of expertise. It's only when it comes to computer-related discussions that they start to exhibit this weird religious faith that if you don't like Apple products, you must not have used them yet, period.

It's a bit like LaTeX advocates, only worse.
