I just learned today that Apple’s iMac design was actually based on another product called the eMate.
I remembered when it was first released, it had this tantalising ad line: Which colour would you choose?
I used to think that this was some kind of gimmick from Apple. But when it was first launched and within a very short time, it was already proven to be successful.
Till now, I still think that iMac was a gimmick but I was obviously wrong.
But one thing was true. It was based on eMate and so it was based on a product originally designed for students in school.
