8 amazing tributes to 3 years of Mac!

30 years of Mac isn't just a big deal for Apple, it's a big deal for anyone passionate about personal computing, anyone who experienced the punch cards and tape decks, the command lines and mismatched components that came before. And for anyone who, thanks in part to the Mac, never had to experience them. Whether you use a Mac today or not, personal computing as it currently exists right now simply wouldn't be the same without the contributions of the people at Apple and on the Mac team. We've been writing about it all week — everyone has been writing about it — and now it's here. The candles are lit. The song is being sung. The party is about to begin. And what a party it is! Here are 8 amazing tributes to the original all-in one, the 1984 Mac that had us all at "Hello!".

Why Google is seen as invulnerable and Apple as merely hard to kill

Though it may slowly be changing, Google has enjoyed incredibly good public and market sentiment for the last few years while Apple has seen itself beset by doomsayers. Horace Dediu has taken a crack at explaining just why that is, and why it might not be entirely bad for Apple. Asymco:

Did the FTC unfairly target Apple and let Google get away in-app free?

Earlier this week the U.S. Federal Trade Commission (FTC) announced Apple would be coughing up at least $32 million for failing to properly inform parents about a 15-minute window that exists, post-password entry, through which their children could make additional purchases and rack up charges. The consent decree has been called into question by Apple and by individuals, based on precedent and based on conspiracy theories. Here's a sampling:

Did Google buying Nest make it a rage quit... or must get? [Poll]

What does Google buying Nest mean to you?

Earlier this week Google bought Nest for a stupefying $3.2 billion dollars, and reaction to the deal has been extreme to say the least. We saw some members of the tech community vow to rip their existing Nests from wall, stomp them into bits, and never do business with them again. We saw Apple's Phil Schiller unfollowing Tony Fadell. Yet we also saw our own Phil Nickinson and Kevin Michaluk raced out to buy Nests and get them installed. So what's to be made of all this?

Like Apple history? You'll love The Record!

The Record is something near and dear to my heart. Not only is it hosted by Chris Parrish and Brent Simmons, developers for whom I have the utmost respect, but it focuses on the stories behind the technology I love. When Guy English started the Debug podcast our goal was to continue the great conversations we had after conferences, in the bars, like WWDC or Çingleton all year round. Part of that includes the secret history of Apple and computing and all that, but The Record is expressly about capturing and preserving just that. The first season focuses on Seattle before the iPhone, and the second episode stars John Nack of Adobe. I simply can't say enough good things about it, so give it a listen.
