Apple 2c

Apple 2c

Apple IIc, final design, 1983. According to Hartmut Esslinger, frog design was forced to edit and re-edit the design in response to petty criticisms from the Apple II team, whose “trivial technical arguments [masked] their NIH (Not Invented Here) syndrome — a dispiriting process I called ‘form follows ego.'”
