the concept folding bikes (having a folder myself) and was amused by

post-modern cuckoo clocks.

I remember it. In fact NeXT was aiming for a ten per cent marketshare of dealing room terminals in 1992 - behind Sun and HP, but ahead of IBM and DEC. UBS was a user reference site along with JPMorgan, although the latter pulled back after a couple of test
installations failed to win over the dealing room boys.
Apple bought NeXT in 1996 and the Unix-based NeXTStep GUI became the basis for a new OS project called Rhapsody, which ultimately begat the Mac OSX that powers all new Macs from the G4 upwards.
