The King Is Dead - Long Live The King!
The best - and worst - of 1998

After being written off as a failure by industry pundits last year, Apple bounced back in 1998 with a new CEO, a new marketing strategy and a slew of new products. Spearheading this reversal of fortune - the iMac, easily one of the most innovative and original products to spring from Steve Jobs' fevered imagination!

More a fashion statement than a computer, the iMac sports a translucent surface, an elongated monitor, a round mouse and more curves than the entire cast of Baywatch ;-) Little wonder that it's been disappearing off the shelves faster than you can say "Profits, baby!"

Take a look at Steve Jobs' futuristic vision at http://www.apple.com/imac/

Or read more about it in MacWorld at http://macworld.zdnet.com/pages/july.98/Column.4357.html

The Asian economic crisis notwithstanding, consumers spent a lot of money in 1998 - and quite a lot of it found it's way into cyberspace. 1998 was also the year that Internet commerce finally took off, with online merchants like Amazon.com and Egift posting record sales, particularly over the festive season.

Amazon.com is available at http://www.amazon.com

Egift is available at http://www.egift.com
