Vintage Apple T-Shirts

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. You might be surprised to learn these babies have been collectibles for a long time and there are extensive collections out there. In fact, there aren’t many […]

Apples for Christmas

My wife and I have an understanding now that we’re empty-nesters and parents of twenty-somethings, and it is we buy our own Christmas presents. Before you think this approach to gift giving takes all the fun out of this holiday, oh quite contraire. Well, here it is the 17th of December and mine are starting […]

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 […]

The Making of iPods Cool

Collecting pieces of Apple’s history is fun. I like the devices, but at the same time I get off on the era they reflect.

One More Thing- Apple’s Watch

Last Tuesday I too tuned in for Apple’s Special Event. It reeked nostalgia from the get-go for me because of its venue- the Flint Center there in Cupertino. MacHeads all know this location. It’s the place in 1984 where Steve introduced Macintosh to the world. Then upon his return to Apple after being ousted, he once again went back to Flint for the unveiling […]

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 […]

Games People Play

One of the most frustrating things about collecting all things Apple is once I’ve found the Apple of my eye the seller’s price is totally unrealistic. I’m not just talking about a seller wanting a premium. No, I’m talking about a seller who is substantially above what the item is worth. Well, that’s where I […]
