My Favorite Apple

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 […]

Steve Jobs Collection Auction

Collectors of all things Apple hunt for the rare and especially one of a kind representations of the early Apple days. Harder to find still are any items used or owned by Steve.

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.

Rebels without a cause

There is peace in the valley. The seas are calm; the ship is now upright. Steve changed the world, just like he wanted—one person at a time. We know too, we can change things, just like he said—we are the rebels and we Think Different now. And Apple, the underdog, won. The threats have subsided: IBM. Microsoft. […]
