The Graphing Calculator Story. When I got my first PowerPC Mac (an 8100/80, absolutely top of the line. I took out a $7000 loan to get it, and career-wise it was worth every penny), it came with Graphing Calculator. That program was absolute magic (MacPaint and HyperCard were about the only other programs before that which were absolute magic). Put in an (x,y) equation and get an instant graph. Put in an (x,y,z) equation and get a surface. Grab onto the surface and spin it around. Those were the days.
