Monday evening following Apple's Worldwide Developers Conference keynote, Pixar's Michael Johnson hosted a fundraising event for the Cartoon Art Museum in San Francisco, where he serves as a board member.
As noted by The Mac Observer, one particularly interesting part of the event was a display of Steve Jobs' personal NeXTcube, loaned for the event by Pixar.
Speakers this year included Wil Shipley, Andrew Stone, and Dr. "Wave" Johnson, and James Dempsey performed two songs from his catalogue of catchily-written, Objective C-focused tunes.
There was also some NeXT gear on display, and this year that included the NeXT Cube used by Steve Jobs mentioned above. While the folks on hand - many of whom knew and worked closely with Mr. Jobs - might have considered such an artifact old hat, I thought it was very cool and figured many of you would, too.
The NeXT cube arrived as the NeXT Computer in 1988, with the machine quickly gaining the informal "cube" name due to its design based on a one-foot magnesium cube. The Cube name became official in 1990 with the release of an updated version named NeXTcube.

… or are you just trying to get a few thumbs up for a half-hearted stab at the new MP :rolleyes:
You can still get Next Step. It is available for free download. It is pretty much a 1980's version of Mac OS X.
Lol, right? The new Mac Pro is the hottest piece of hardware I've EVER seen from Apple.. one eighth the volume?! Wow..!! I can't wait to see one. Overboard for my uses, but wow.. really want to play on one at the Apple store.
No matter what your opinion on Apple, or iOS, or the state of the company... this is CLEAR innovation!! And made in the USA?! Hating on this product is asinine. Hope that guy trolls on back home, under his bridge.
Oh my God you guys are ridiculous. You don't think the next cube - updated to modern standards - with a square shape that can be stacked?! Or lined up?! Would not have blown the tube away??
You're either working for Apple or just a mind-less fanboy
