IIsi in a Bag

Ever since learning about A/UX, I have wanted a computer that I could run it on. However, I tend to collect powerbooks and consumer macintoshes, so none of the computers in my collection met the requirements. I had to go out and get one of the more professional models. I find A/UX to be quite fascinating and would love the experience of using… Continue

E-Machines EtherDock for the PowerBook Duo series

With a little more free time with the holidays, I thought I would showcase some stuff I have collected over the past few years. I have made quite a collection of docks for my PowerBook Duos. Although the concept of a lightweight notebook that can be docked to form a full size desktop is novel, I find the selection of mini and micro docks to be another interesting facet of the line. With out the docks, the Duo becomes a nearly enclosed computing system, with only a serial or modem to access the… Continue

You Have a NEWTON????

Even after 14 years, an Apple Newton 110 can still turn heads.

A week ago a classmate caught me browsing eBay and the local craigslist for laptops. I told him that I enjoy collecting the old computers and had a number of them already. After offering to give me his old PowerBook, he mentioned that he had always wanted to play with a Newton. He had seen them years ago, but never had a chance to use it. In response to that, I said had collected three of them, a 110, 2100 and an eMate… Continue

QuickTake photos

Part of my Vintage Apple/Mac collection is a QuickTake 100 digital camera. I got this camera back in 2004 when I purchased a vintage Duo 280c and 230.

Back in 1993, Apple thought they could get a part of the billion dollar photography industry by releasing their own digital camera. Digital cameras at the time were in early development and did not have the same quality as our current cameras. Here is my Quicktake with a neck strap and a red floppy for comparison: …

Hey Sean2300c! A tree house? Cool! I'd love to see a picture of 9 Macs in a tree house.

Hi Sean,
I really enjoyed your QuickTake photos. I have a QuickTake 100 on the way; it should arrive any day! I may have some questions for you when I get it. I just got a WallStreet PowerBook yesterday for use with the QT100. I haven't yet had a chance to play with the WallStreet at all because I camped out overnight for the iPhone last night and now I'm really too tired to focus my brain on much. I downloaded the software for the QT100 from since the camera does not come with any disks. I'm pretty sure it's the right stuff; I'll find out in a few days.
Your photos are really nice. It's a really pretty soft look that the camera makes. You've got some beautiful areas around you to photograph. I love the California houses and gardens. They look so timeless.
I also have a Newton 2100 on the way. I have an eMate but it doesn't do a whole lot since I have no way to connect it to the internet to get more software. It came from a school so there is virtually nothing installed on it. I will have the stuff to connect to the internet, plus a bunch of games and other programs, when I get the 2100, so then it should be a lot more fun. I have been practicing the handwriting recognition a lot, with not a whole lot of luck but it's fun anyways. I took the eMate to work the other day and everyone was really impressed with it.
Glad you joined the RetroMacCast!

I don't think James really wanted you to try to get all your macs in a treehouse. I think he'd feel terrible if you dropped one!

He may have 160 of them, but he loves them all.

Thank you so much for the help with the QuickTake. I can't wait to try that suggestion. I am out on Folly Island in South Carolina until Wednesday and didn't bring QuickTake or WallStreet. My friend doesn't even have Internet at all. All I have is my iPhone and there's no 3G so I'm stuck with Edge which is so weak here it can take over five minutes to load a page sometimes. I will try out the 150 software next week and I'll let you know how it works.

The QuickTake 100 pictures finally work on my WallStreet!!! I went back and installed the PhotoFlash software because QuickTime just wasn't displaying them big enough. I really like the PhotoFlash. I cropped, resized and enhanced very easily with it. Now I have to take pictures of something besides my husband making coffee and the dogs. I will take the QT to the beach with me tomorrow and take my 8 photos there.
Here are my dogs:

Ok, I didn't use the photo button on that comment. So here's take two on the photos.

Hi Sean,
I get all of my desktop art from I spend hours scrolling through photos on there looking for art. I love the Minimalist style. My favorite desktop art has either white or blue backgrounds.
I have since relocated the Clamshells to a different location near my Blue & Whites. Now my Newtons are on that shelf. I have two Indigos, two Blueberries and one Tangerine Clamshell. One of the Indigos has a trackpad that won't click and the second memory slot won't work, plus it's really faded. The others all work!
I made a blog on My Page with a few more QuickTake photos. I got a QT150 yesterday. It was $14.99 with free shipping on eBay. It came with the original manuals and floppies, plus the leather case, but no cables or adapter ( I just use the ones I have from the 100 ). It holds 16 photos! Now I need to find a 200.
At 6:15pm on August 8, 2008, Heather said…
I was surprised, but the QuickTake 150 has options for only 16 or 32 photos. Perhaps the QT150's 32 photos are "mid resolution", as opposed to the low resolution 32 photos on the QT100. I'll have to take a few photos at the 32 photo setting on each and compare the file sizes.

Hi Sean
Thank you for adding MacHEADS

I have not heard of anyone trying that but here is a link to an adapter that might help you with that. Let me know if you succeed in your quest. The IIGS is such a fun machine to play around with.
