No, you only had to read ONE manual: a three ring binder containing about 500 pages impeccably organized and clearly written, among the best computer documentation of the day.
I was one of the earliest developers, and attended the Mac programming boot camp in San Jose (I lived in Minnesota at the time), taught by Guy Kawasaki. This was an entirely new computing paradigm, coming as it did into a green-screen, character-based world. There was understandably a lot to learn.
I wonder what this article’s author would say about the first TV developed? It was, after all, just a radio with a graphical interface. Would he retain his haughty tone and snide vocabulary? He’s a know-nothing who was in gradeschool when the Mac came out.
Stargatesg7, What you posit is silly beyond belief. Any chip fab engineer would immediately detect extra litho layers in a device long before final production, and such a contaminated chip would have thermal and electrical characteristics immediately calling attention to the subterfuge. No shaving required. Only someone with no micro semi knowledge would say this.
This is not a new problem. People for hundreds of years before Ms. Whiney have tried to live in the most desirable locales whilst being insufficiently valuable to pull down the required bucks. I want to live in NY Trump Towers. It's my right! Instead I'm stuck in hot, unglamorous Southern California. Woe is me.
Never mind that most of America lives in the meat of the bi-coastal sandwich.
Dear The Register.
Please do not let Greg Knieriemen write anymore. He is a whiner. He doesn't make sense. And he does The Register no favors by writing a rambling obsequious "open letter" to a person of intelligence and substance.
According to your "Get more from this author", this is the only thing Mr. Kneiriemen has written for "all The Register sites." Keep it that way while you still can.
