Did you know old Apple t-shirts are an Apple collector fan fav? They are, and I must confess I also love these old markers of Apple’s days gone by.

New additions to my collection and Apples for everyday use

Granted, each of us buys our own presents so this is probably why. 🙂 This year I will be adding to my collection here at MyFavoriteApple several totally random Apples.

Apple’s watch gets smart

Apple watches are cool and extremely collectible. No, I’m not talking about the highly anticipated smart watch dubbed the iWatch. Instead, I’m talking about the timepieces pictured in their Apple product catalogs during the mid to late 1980’s and then others used as promotional items throughout the 1990s. As the world excitedly awaits Apple’s unveiling of their first […]

My Favorite Apple- Journal Entry

Journal update May 18, 2014: I have a daily Apple routine. It’s keeping up with Apple Inc. and Tim Cook & Company.

And aside from my fascination with this, my favorite company,  I collect […]
