The story of how Graphic Calculator came to be developed and shipped on the Mac is mindblowing.
It reminds me of two plotlines from the comedy series Seinfeld. In one, George is fired from a job and continues to show up, as though nothing happened. In the other, Kramer starts showing up to a job for which he was never hired.
But how this non-official software product was started, halted, skunkworks-ed, QA’d, usability tested, and localized without ever having been sanctioned or paid for by Apple is a wonderful tale that fits perfectly into the lore of corporate apathy.
