Where great old Macs live again!

It all started from this article 9-year-old writes iPhone app in the popular blog The Singapore iPhone Guide.

A few days later, Ding Wen started to receive interview invitations for his love of the iPhone and Apple IIGS...

Then it appeared in Singapore newspaper, showing a live working Apple IIGS showing pictures on TV, and also an iPhone showing a painting of Apple IIGS:


Then in Malaysia newspapers:



Another article appeared in another Singapore newspaper, this time Apple IIGS is shown on an emulator running on iMac.


All of the sudden, Ding Wen - the world youngest Apple IIGS programmer - becomes very popular. and Apple IIGS is still back into the limelight - in the year 2009.

Congrats, I read the news in MacWorld. I am a Mac programmer in Malaysia, I must say it is no easy feat for a nine year old boy to do it on iPhone.

Yes, and both me and Ding Wen are Malaysian too (but almost nobody picked up this - this is in Ding Wen's home page). It is really not hard to do, I detailed all the steps in my blog - with just a little bit of Objective C wrapper - you can do everything in JavaScript.
