Still using that Mac? What’s wrong with you? Have you not heard the news?
Back on January 27, 2010, a very Big Thinker declared the PC dead. A decade later, the PC is very much alive, although a time traveler from 2010 might not recognize it.
Wait. When did the Mac and PC die?
You can even mark the date and time of the PC’s death: January 27, 2010, at 10:00 A.M. Pacific Time, when Steve Jobs stepped onto a San Francisco stage to unveil the iPad.
I get a new Mac about every four or five years. They just get better. The old ones still work and find a good home with some neighbor kids or co-worker’s kids.
