You must have seen a different Apple than I, Loren...or talked with
I put it to you that to this day Steve Jobs and Phil ("HyperCard is
just a rolodex") Schiller have absolutely no clue as to A. what
HyperCard was really all about or B. how many Mac sales were were
lost forever when Claris made the decision to make people pay for
HyperCard. HyperCard 3 (Quick Time Interactive) would have been
Apple's premier app, and in the words of Gil Amelio (to K. Calhoun),
"this [QTI] is what Apple is really all about."
Apple traded Amelio & QTI for Jobs & colored computers.
