MacZot makes me shop!

Rosa Parks and Apple

What is all the hub-bub about? The tribute on the Apple home page is very cool! I think associating the “Think Different” logo with her is a nice tribute. She was a different thinker as well as a different “do-er”. In addition, there is a real nice write-up on her life. Way to go...
