This review is from: Return to the Little Kingdom: Steve Jobs, the creation of Apple, and how it changed the world (Paperback)
It is difficult to fully appreciate just how different and awkward early computers were to use. Linking bits together, typing code or running tapes to get it started and then being confined to using a small selection of software.
When Steve Jobs and Steve Wozniak were trying to sell computer boards at the Homebrew Computer Club in the 1970's, it was to enthusiasts who did not mind tinkering. By the time the Macintosh arrived in 1984, Apple was a growing profitable company selling a complete package to industry and domestic users.
This book provides a detailed look at how it all came about. The successes, failures and personalities that created a company so different to IBM and Hewlett Packard.
I have been using Apple computers for nearly two decades. I have bought in to the aspirations that come with buying such a machine. I 'Think Different', but still do a lot of computing and enjoy the experience using a current iMac.
Once you have read Return to the Little Kingdom, I think you will appreciate why owners and users of Apple computers are so devoted and happy that they have made the right choice.
The four star rating is only because I would have preferred to see a few photographs includedReturn to the Little Kingdom: Steve Jobs, the creation of Apple, and how it changed the world
