Today is the day for those of us who managed to get into the online Apple Store and place our orders while supplies held out. I just checked the tracking on mine and it left Louisville, KY Thursday morning, arrived in Nashville, TN that evening, and is now showing up at the depot in my small suburb as “Preparing for Delivery.” I finally feel confident it will actually arrive today.

The main thing that made Apple stand out from the rest of the personal computing market during the early parts of the company’s recovery and rise in the late 90s and early 2000s was design. We saw it in their first big hit after the return of Steve Jobs with the original iMac. Those machines brought a style and sense of fun that no other computer company could match for years.
