Say what? Macs are 'a spiritual touchstone'

Before there was an iPhone, before there was an iPod, Apple Computer was known primarily for its Macintosh computers.

Andy Hertzfeld remembers those days. He was part of the team that built the original Mac more than two decades ago, and had many a first-hand glimpse at how Steve Jobs led the fledgling company. At this week's Macworld, he reminisced about the 1980s-era work habits of Jobs and other Apple hall-of-famers including Steve Wozniak, Jef Raskin and Burrell Smith.

And he reflected on the enduring appeal of Apple's legendary computer: "It's a spiritual touchstone...It's the love and care that Apple puts into it," he said. "It's not just a product. "
