Andrew Webber making another run of TDX stereo cards

While it’s certainly not essential, a stereo card can add ‘flavor’ to your Apple IIGS experience. It’s also important to consider carefully which stereo card you use (if you can even find one), because reliability and sound fidelity can vary from brand to brand. That’s why we’re happy to see ‘Drew’ Webber is producing a second round of his high quality TDX ][ stereo cards. They’re reasonably priced, and offer GREAT stereo sound output from your Apple IIGS. I expect the estimated run of 25 to 50 boards to sell briskly, so get on the waiting list NOW or you might miss out.

Open Apple #36 (Mar 2014): Evan Koblentz, VCF East, Softalk, and Apple2pi

Evan KoblentzThis month on Open Apple, the Apple II community’s only monthly podcast, Mike and Ken chat with Evan Koblentz, producer of Vintage Computer Festival East. VCF East 9.1 is happening this spring, and Evan has an inside look at the event’s founding, growth, and lineup. Margot Comstock has been announced as the keynote speaker of KansasFest 2014, prompting us to reflect on the history of Softalk magazine. The Apple2pi card is now shipping, and it reminds us of other small devices that left a big impression, like the Replica-1 and even the Apple Newton PDA — which still has an active user group! Finally, Steve Jobs is appearing in all kinds of icons, from e-waste portraits to unlickable postage stamps. When will Woz get the recognition he deserves?

Find the show at the Open Apple Web site or in the iTunes and Zune podcast directories.
