Snippet: Lisa’s Final Act: How Apple Invented Its Future by Burying Its Past ☇

Shared on May 30, 2023

William Poor for The Verge:

Last December, along with a Verge video crew, I found myself wandering across a snowy mountain of garbage in Logan, Utah. Everyone we’d talked to told us that Logan was a gorgeous place to visit pretty much anytime except the dead of winter. They also told us the landfill wasn’t the most pleasant place to explore at any time of year. The landfill in the dead of winter was a real one-two punch — though the cold probably helped with the smell a little.

This is a fantastic half hour documentary and while that whole chapter in Apple history took place before I was even using computers, I do have fond memories of Sun Remarketing for old Mac things in the late-’90s.
