New York Times misidentifies Color Classic


The New York Times recently published a special multimedia article authored by Sam Grobart entitled While You Were Out: Apple’s Years With and Without Steve Jobs.

A timeline from 1976 through 2007 is accompanied with a slideshow illustrating Apple's products, links to NYT stories from the past about their introduction, and spoken narration by Mr. Grobart.

Aficionados of the Macintosh Color Classic will bristle, however, at the 1993 slide which identifies a Macintosh LC520 as a Color Classic. The caption also describes an LC III as a "Macintosh IIIc" (click photo above for full sized image and caption).

No 100% uptime in January ...

Started off the New Year out of town and the Color Classic web server decided to stop responding. Our neighbor who was kindly taking care of our cats, fish, and turtles in our absence restarted it for me, but it looks like my hopes for 100% uptime this month are already dashed.
