Apple's introduction of the Macintosh in 1984 - a GUI guided black on white pixel screen - represented itself, as designed, on paper sheets as black ink dots on the so-named dot-matrix printer of the 80s & marked the beginning of widespread desktop publishing on small computers both at work and at home by individuals and entire families. The original Mac's small 9 in. screen was made to create a 1:1 ratio in software with a sheet of paper 8.5 in. wide. And not only does the I-Pad sound like it's name refers to sheets of paper for drawing or writing, but current versions are also sized more like a sheet of paper. Apple's mobile devices and their competition's imitations have also helped e-commerce boom beyond the confines of the office or home "computer room" and in so doing might be helping the paper packaging industry thrive.
