Blog

I ran my own blog from November 2006 till October 2014. All posts are still online, but I don't have time to update it anymore. Please note that all images and media files have been removed when the backup was moved to a new host in early 2016. Enjoy!

Apple.com website in 1997... and today

30. october 2007

After the launch of MacOSX 10.5 Leopard and taking another look the great Apple.com website I was wondering what the Apple site looked like 10 years ago, back in late 1997. A quick search on www.archive.org gives you the answer, the July 1997 snapshop shows a 600 pixel wide page that doesn't look Apple-like at all (as far as I remember not even for their brand back then), announcing that MacOS 8 could now be preordered - just take a look:

And then, compare it to the almost 1000 pixels wide current Apple.com:
