So hagiography does serve a purpose. In this case we have capitalists who
are doing what capitalists are supposed as opposed to the way too many
tales of capitalists as thieves in suits.
Capitalism is not necessarily evil just as it is not the solution to all problems.
It does solve some problems and permits more innovations than certain other
systems of economics and labor management.

Might that be 'hagiography' , my literary friend?

BUT.... the electronics for it were part of the early iMac
motherboards. Some early adopters easily hacked the machine and just
ran some ribbon cable from the mother board out to an external
floppy, and it would work just fine, thank you very much.
I opted to get an outboard Imation "super disk", which would read and
write to their proprietary 120 MB disk or standard high density 1.4
MB floppies. The Imation drive used a USB connection. Still have it
somewhere, along with a disk that contains tax programs and data.
But the latest date on the disk is 1998, so I'm unlikely to have the
IRS ask me to explain anything on a tax return that old. Most people
can discard tax stuff more than 7 years old without worry.
