Benj Edwards, writing for Macworld:
Just before the Internet’s meteoric rise in the public consciousness, large centralized dial-up services like America Online, Prodigy, and CompuServe dominated the online landscape. In this competitive climate 20 years ago, Apple introduced eWorld, a subscription-based information service available to Mac and Newton users.
It was like a safe house for Apple fans. It’s nice we don’t need a safe house anymore.
