One of my favoriteÂ Internet destinationsÂ to visit is The Mothership, a site dedicated to preserving Apple’s historical contributions to computing (and pop culture).Â One of theÂ more intriguingÂ pages on the site (for me) is the Advertising and Brochure GalleryÂ which contains material all the way back to the Apple 1 and Apple II era, on up to more recent years. For example, check out the hard to find Apple ][+ Family System manual that was just added, circa 1981. Good stuff… wish I had one.
Making theÂ semi-transportable Apple //c even more portableÂ has been the goal of manyÂ Apple II retro-computing hobbyists. Dean Phares is the latest to achieve gaming nerdvana by interfacing a PSone portable playstation LCD to his //c. There might be a slightÂ increase in demand for these displays on eBay now.
New hardware is coming soon for the Apple II. I can’t divulge anything specific but expect a few announcements from more than one vendor soon, maybe in time for the new year. Apple II Forever!
