Distractions... distractions... distractions...

A neighbor of mine dropped off a complete IIe, IIgs, and a box full of software that has been sitting in his garage for two years. Both machines come populated with an assortment of cards (no SCSI though). He also says he has an Imagewriter and a IIsi. I asked him what he wanted for the whole lot and he hasn't specified a price. We've agreed to work something out once the semester wraps up.

I should be wrapping up my semester… Continue

Assistive Technology Freestyle Tablet

I received a pair of these in the mail today, and although they weren't advertised as functioning and sold "as is", they booted just fine with the addition of a power adapter I have from a PowerBook 5300. They are in both in pretty good physical shape. One is missing the battery door, and both are missing their rear port door. These are really interesting computers, and I plan to do a more detailed segment on a future podcast episode. I am having trouble finding more about their history. So… Continue

I was looking for a picture of the cover of "Zen and the Art of Macintosh - Discoveries on the Path to Computer Enlightenment" by Michael Green (One of my favorite Mac-centric books). Much to my surprise, there were none to be found, even where I found it for sale at used book sites! So, here for your perusal is not only the cover but a few pages from inside as well. "Zen and the Art of Macintosh" was published in 1986 by Running Press Book Publishers. This book is a celebration of desktop… Continue

Do you remember the Powerbook 1400 covers?

my favorite cover Yeah the Powerbook 1400 had an optional clear cover with paper inserts that you could put under the clear plastic! Ive even scanned one and used it as a template to make my own updated versions. I scanned the folder they came in and the 6 covers I have in jpeg format, all full size images, and zipped them all up. Get them here:

Welcome to Macintosh - Impressions

My friend Drew and I drove down to Madison, Wisconsin from UW-Oshkosh to catch the premier of “Welcome to Macintosh” at the Chazen Museum of Art. The $30 in gas and cost of admission was money well spent. We met up with another friend of mine, Adam, who lived just a few blocks away.

Madison is fairly open-minded and, as you can guess, full of Mac-heads. The theater was not packed to the brim, but was mostly filled. The level of geekery/virginity was palpable as audience members waved… Continue
