The evolution of the iMac Posted on Wednesday, October 24th, 2012 at 8:37 am. PT Written by Jim Dalrymple Unlike Dave, the lampshade iMac was not my favorite. I like the new design. http://twitter.com/SBiickert Simon Biickert The one thing that the lampshade iMac has over the current design is the “floating” screen movement. As a taller person, I hate that there is only angle adjustment on the current model. http://twitter.com/forty2j Jim McPherson The lampshade was my first Mac (not counting my wife’s G3 powerbook). I don’t really miss it. http://darcyfitzpatrick.tumblr.com/ Darcy Fitzpatrick This just in: Jim Dalrymple likes what Apple is doing right now. Still waiting for your critique of the new iPad mini ad being all about the keyboard app. I’m sure that’s coming any day now… http://twitter.com/shycophante Shyco Phante Don’t forget he spent more than a year pissing on smaller form factor tablets and seeing no use for them. Now Apple has one he’s suddenly liking what he sees with the smaller and lighter tablet. http://darcyfitzpatrick.tumblr.com/ Darcy Fitzpatrick It’s hypocritical blowhards like Jim that give genuine Apple fans a bad rap.
