Great song (We are Apple)! I'm adding it to the home page.

I did finally figure that part out - but it's strange to see the "new designs" in everything. I guess the giveaway was that Scully was still there.

"Do you want to sell sugar water or do you want to change the world?" - Awesome recruiting line.

Love the iPhone. I see you have a 6400, too. That's still what I use for my main machine.

Just found out something awful .... My school just chucked out 3 PowerBook 100's and a couple of other older power books ... Why, Because the 'Other' Power books had no power adapter and the 100's were 'Old crap and useless.'.

I like the "iPhone" pic! It's a GPO type 746 telephone if I'm not mistaken?

Sweet! Thanks for the heads up on that. I was not aware of the sequel. What I find out about what is good on BBC is a bit hit or miss as I do not have BBC America yet. My wife and I are big Dr. Who and spin offs fans as well as a number of our friends. Our friend Matt introduced us to Life on Mars so I can't wait to tell him about Ashes to Ashes.

Luckily I was at school during a period when a large number of the computers were being updated. My high school also switched over to using Windows PCs shortly after I arrived which meant that practically all the Macs were gradually disposed of. I befriended the school's technicians and they frequently told me about stuff that was going to be dumped and sometimes even huted down specific parts / peripherals for me. They had everything from Mac Pluses to early PowerMacs.

Some of the rest of my collection came from when I was at university, where they occasionally dumped Macs in the skips behind the various departments. Again, I befriended some technicians who found me a few great machines like my Quadra 700 and SE/30.

BBC Radio 1 and Apple

Just Heard something on Radio 1...

They were talking about exam scores and that teenagers are getting dumber, but getting higher grades. They then compared exam results for 1976 and they said...

"1976, only 3 channels on T.V. and Apple just made their first computer, the size of a wardrobe"

iBook :D

Today I picked up a 600 MHz dual USB iBook and I am rather happy. I'm happy because I didn't pay a single penny for it ! All I had to do was install windows XP on boot camp for the technician. As a joke I asked for a iBook, he chuckled and left the room... Came back a couple of mins latter and 'Boom', he gave me an iBook.

The little guy is in a good-ish condition for being used for 4 year in a laptop trolley, then chucked in a store room for like 3 or so years. There is two rubber… Continue
