The iPad Pro- Apple’s first tablet to use a stylus, or is it?

Apple finally went against Steve’s demand by making a stylus for one of their tablets. Yes, the iPad Pro is a break from Steve’s insistence that the finger is the best input device, and even over the mouse- Yikes! Steve didn’t like mechanical pointing devices for inputting commands. Steve killed the Apple Newton (Personal Digital Assitant) after […]

New additions to my collection and Apples for everyday use

Christmas has always provided me an opportunity to add to my collection, and this year was no different. 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. Some are continuing certain subcollections, while others are newer […]

NIB Factory Sealed Vintage Apple Computer Company Products

Collecting vintage Apple products that are still new gets me excited. The older the Apple is the harder it is to find in this condition. It wouldn’t be hard to find any old Apple in only good grade condition, but if I’m going to buy it used and in only good condition it would have […]

Brand New Original iPad

Today is a celebration of my newest addition to my Apple collection. I acquired a sealed, Brand New- still in the Box and never opened, 1st Gen iPad. The original iPad was released in April of 2010. No, it’s not a vintage machine, like a lot of my collection, but it is still super significant. Steve […]

Apple’s iPad Pro it’s not- the Apple Graphics Tablet

In 1979 Apple Computer employed 250 people and they worked in only four buildings there in Cupertino. And looking back now with Apple employing over 110,000 employees and building a new 28 million square foot building, I think we can say that year was smack dab in the middle of Apple’s very early days. The Apple II, released in 1977, was selling […]

Original iPad Retires to the Apple Computer Museum

My Mac Museum is a place for vintage Apple computers and memorabilia, but not everything dates back to the late 70s or early 80s though. No, I have added their products well into the 90s and even the first iPods from 2000 and 2001. I don’t usually add my everyday machines when I upgrade, not officially anyway. […]

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. Following and anticipating their moves and positions,  even down to listening to their quarterly earnings call and the games they play with the stock analysts. And aside from my fascination with this, my favorite company,  I collect […]

Leander Kahney’s Biography on Jony Ive

Whether you are an old Mac Head or a new Apple fan, you’ll love Jony Ive- The Genius Behind Apple’s Greatest Products. I’ll admit, I’m not typically into biographies and haven’t even finished Steve Jobs. I prefer the history of the early days of Apple instead..and in case you are still picking yourself off the […]

1989 Macintosh Portable Brochure

Collectors of Apple eventually develop niche’ areas of focus. Most don’t start off there, but out of passion or necessity a pattern develops. Mine has clearly revealed itself. Even though I consider myself an early adopter I was actually a late bloomer when it came to using a computer, so my area of passion pre-dates […]
