My collection is of the Jonathan Ive creations. I love the bold whites, bright colors and simple yet elegant designs.
My favorite operating system is Tiger, although I did upgrade three of my Macs to Leopard, and some of my older Macs are running OS 9 and OS 8. I'm pretty much completely out of room, but if I could find some more space, I would like to get some of the older Macs and Apples, too. I wish we had basements here in Florida!!!
That is a great story, it was not the normal iPod to iTunes, to iMac progression. That's QT, to iTunes, to iPod, to iMac! That's definitely a round about.
I agree with your comparison, or description of your Mac collection as your art collection. I was just looking at the the design awards Apple just got for the iPhone and the iMac I think it was. It was on the D&AD page, the black pencil award (which I had never heard of before).
So, sounds like art to me! I do like the colored iMacs also, they are so cute. I have the graphite, and would like add a Ruby, and a Flower Power to my collection.
I'm glad your macs are running better, but sounds like the 20" iMac is going in soon. Don't touch the MacBook Air! OMG! It was beautiful, light, another work of art. It's very, very dangerous to touch!
Me, I have to stay away from the black MacBook. To me, that is one sexy machine. I hope they don't do away with the black.
Thanks! Those are great Cube tips!! I have the matching LCD display so it has a nice "look". I'll have to take some pictures. I've just begun a little basement remodel and I hope to have a Mac Museum of my own soon. I want to paint the cement floor with all the Mac OS logo designs. We'll see - it may take me awhile!
Right on! Congratulation on the eMate! I will try to help, but I've not done much with mine except load a few games and do a little word processing on it. I'd like to learn how to make an eMate clock, that would be pretty cool.
I won an unopened Hypercard application with manuals and I was hoping to learn to make some stacks, but now with the fires here in Monterey Co, and Big Sur where I work, I don't think I'll be able to get to that for a while. I will have to put everything on hold till the fat lady sings. I'm not even sure I'm going to have a station to go back to on Sunday. I am going to go get my iMac and my 6400 out of quarters though. I'm not going to loose those, if I can help it.
Wow! Now that is a close call. Yikes! And I don't mean the computer. I'm glad your home, and your Macs and you two made it through that whole and unharmed.
When I left a few days ago, it was pretty close, but they were able to keep it on the east side of Hwy. 1, mostly, so our station is still there. They put fire retardant gel on the firehouse/station, and it looks like it's been slimmed. Today they are going to start hosing it down now that the danger is has passed. Luckily, I'm at home today, so I'll miss the hose down operation!
Thank you for looking at my photos and commenting! The QT100 is unique in that it feels more like a simple film camera; you take the picture through the viewfinder and then see how they come out later. It is definitely more of a challenge than today's digitals. Congrats on the acquisition of the QT100 and the Newton 2100! I would love to see the photos that you take with it!
The 2100 is a must have for any collector of Apple hardware. The handwriting recognizer is fantastic, and it is an all around just an amazing device. Will you be putting it to daily use as an organizer or keep it as a collectable?
I have been using a Duo 2300c to download the pictures off of my Quicktake 100. I do have a Wallstreet, so I will try to connect my Quicktake to that and see what happens. Did you get your drivers off of macdriver museum? I will try those first. I have some disk images with Quicktake software which I got from another website. I'll let you know how it goes!
What a great contemporary Mac collection, thought I was bad, two Cubes and lots of iSubs/sticks going on! I think deep down we all like the flower/Dalmatian macs!
Never really used my QT's (100/150/200), maybe I will dig them out and give them try.
