How to get back gigabytes of Mac disk space by deleting unused Steam games

Recently my 13 year old son wanted to install some new software on his Mac but found that he didn't have a lot of disk space. Surprising, given that his Mac mini came with a 320 GB hard drive. So we did some snooping around and discovered the culprit: dozens of gigabytes of space taken up with games that were installed using Valve's Steam software. We deleted what he wasn't using and freed up more than 80 GB! Here's how you can do the same.

Unseen before now: Steve Jobs unveils the Mac to the public for the first time

The Mac had already been shown off to the press in the fall of 1983, and the 1984 ad broadcast during the Super Bowl in January made a big public splash. But it wasn't until January 30, 1984 that Steve Jobs and other members of the Macintosh team would show the new computer to the public - specifically, a gathering of the Boston Computer Society (BCS).

Happy Birthday, Macintosh

Thirty years ago today, the Macintosh went on sale for the first time. It was a world-changing moment, though few, if any, recognized it at the time. In fact, the Mac struggled to find its own footing at first, and has struggled at various times during its existence. But the Mac has endured. 2014 finds the Mac a vital and thriving platform, more popular now than ever.

1984: How Apple's TV ad changed everything, and why 2014 won't be anything like it either

Thirty years ago today Apple advertised the Macintosh nationally for the first time. That's a footnote that in and of itself isn't remarkable, but it's how they did it that everyone remembers: the 1984 ad. Thirty years on, the 1984 ad is still remembered as one of the best TV ads of all time. But why?
