2. Not only did it have a real GUI, it was the first GUI from Apple with color support. The 8-Bit backwards compatibility were very well done. You could launch 8-bit Apple II software from the GS/OS finder, and you could even add custom icons for them. My Apple IIgs served me very well though most of my college days, using AppleWorks 5 for the Apple II. In fact, the only reason I got rid of my IIgs was that my internal Hard Drive / Power Supply started to fail, and I didn't want to spend the time needed to troubleshoot / fix it. Apple's discontinuation of the Apple IIgs was more a business decision than a technology decision. Apple had decided that Macintosh was the future, and killed the Apple II, almost by attrition.

After pounding the pavement, you download the time and distance to the Apple II via its game port to track your progress, along with your knees' crippling descent into being cartilage-free. I think they didn't take off because they lacked that crucial Walkman hookup. Hit the jump for a closer view.

These Puma running shoes from the 1980s had a built in pedometer that interfaced with an Apple II's "game port" to download the distance and time traveled for later analysis. More details of their construction at the link below.
