“ THE MERCILESS factor in the lives of all living creatures called time has struck at a man who thought deep and hard and came up with the idea of the Apple Mac. It was a machine which galvanised Microsoft’s mind, and concentrated Intel’s brain.
Jeff Raskin died over the weekend in Pacifica. Mr Raskin started work at the early Apple and came up with the idea of introducing a computer for the masses which would be easy to use.
He is the man who named the Macintosh the Macintosh because this type of apple was the kind he liked to eat.
He left Apple Inc before the company launched the Apple Mac.”
