Back to the plot... As I said I was in Borders looking for the Apple 1 replica book and by chance came across another book about Apple called Revolution in The Valley which I picked up with interest. I have read most books on the personal computer revolution and its history. My favourite being Steven Levy's Hackers: Heroes of the Computer Revolution but I also liked his book on the history of Apple and Macintosh - Insanely Great: The Life and Times of Macintosh, the Computer That Changed Everything. The new Andy Herzfeld book is very well laid out and designed and looks like a very interesting read. There is a forward by Steve Wozniak that says this is the best and most true book that he has read about the history of Apple and the Mac. The book includes loads of photos and even copies of Andy's notebooks from the time. The book is based around short stories that Andy had written down and published on a website www.folklore.org about Apples history and the history and memories of creating the Mac. There are a number of other authors that have now written for the site and you can search and add comments. This is a good website. The book -
Revolution In The Valley: The Insanely Great Story of How the Mac Was Made
- is based on the site and includes key events and stories mostly written by Andy. Anyway i bought it and will read it mostly because I like these types of history books.
Of interest this evening i also note that Mark is also talking Apple in his post Apple Move To Intel Processors From 2006. This is an interesting post by Mark and could prove a good alternative platform for Oracle in the future.
OK, that is it, back to Oracle security now..:-)
