Please use the comments to demonstrate your own ignorance, unfamiliarity with empirical data and lack of respect for scientific knowledge. Be sure to create straw men and argue against things I have neither said nor implied. If you could repeat previously discredited memes or steer the conversation into irrelevant, off topic discussions, it would be appreciated. Lastly, kindly forgo all civility in your discourse . . . you are, after all, anonymous.

    The Macintosh was hardly the first universal multi-media tool. The Xerox Star, or perhaps even the Xerox Alto from even earlier, deserves that distinction. The Mac wasn’t even the first one from Apple – you overlook the Apple Lisa, which had a graphical display, a mouse and a laser printer.

    Bah. In addition to the error pointed out above by richgi2, they also omit the first
    commercial e-mail spam (1978), the green card Usenet spam (1994), and Pointcast (1996).
    And that’s just off the top of my head. Infographics are the junk food of facts.
