How to efficiently free up space and recover lost storage on your Mac

Insanely Great Vintage 1990's Approaching Macintosh sweatshirt with artwork by Berkeley Breathed

This vintage Macintosh sweat shirt comes from the estate sale of an early Apple employee. It's in excellent condition. The Made in USA Signal tag denotes a size 46 (XL) but it fits like a medium. Seriously. It appears to be new and unwashed - unusual in a shirt made in the early 1990's.

The artwork comes from the Banana Junior computer created by Berkeley Breathed in Bloom County in the mid 80's. Breathed is printed backwards on both the sweatshirt graphic and on the book cover on the bottom left. The back of the shirt has the text: Approaching Macintosh Team, acknowledging the creation of the manual of hands-on modules that prepares the reader to understand and utilize an array of Macintosh software applications.

This extremely rare Apple shirt is priced at $220 plus insured shipping at cost.To inquire contact Dave via
Approaching Macintosh: A Guide to Learning MacIntosh Software published 1991 by Michael Tchao et al, via ACM Digital Library

The Banana Junior 6000: Computers and Comedy | Computer History Museum: In late 1984, Breathed introduced a new character, the Banana Junior 9000 (later the Banana Junior 6000, though it is unknown whether this was due to an unseen processor downgrade…) which was adopted by young Oliver Wendell Jones.

Released at the same time as the Macintosh was a fictional computer that was 32-bits and offered a staggering 450KB of memory! It proudly declared that it “Computes! Sorts! Prints! Draws! Figures! Doodles! Slices! Dices! Whistle! Whimpers! Dances! Prances!” It was the most insanely great great computer ever devised for a comic strip.

The monochrome display screen is clear and bright, the battery takes and holds a charge, and the click wheel functions properly. All in all, a very nice Apple iPod collectible.

Extremely rare pin - Keep Your Lawyers Off My Computer

This is the infamous Fanged Apple, a design created in protest of Apple's lawsuit regarding graphical user interfaces (GUI) software. This 2.25" diameter button is in very good condition with all details crisp and clear. It was one of three released last year by a collector in California. It was his last one and they have become extremely rare. It is priced at $65 and that includes postage. To inquire contact Dave via

Provenance: the former owner of this pin, a speaker at several Boston MacWorlds in the early 90's, says "I personally obtained this button from Richard Stallman outside of Lotus's offices in Cambridge, MA!"

"In 1989, Apple's look and feel lawsuit against Microsoft brought the idea of interface copyright to the attention of the programming community. Apple was trying to claim a monopoly over a broad class of graphical user interfaces. If Apple succeeded, not only Microsoft, but every software developer, would be legally compelled to design gratuitously incompatible software." In response, John Gilmore and Richard Stallman together commissioned the design of the "fanged Apple"–a button showing the Apple logo with vicious teeth. This was followed by an advertisement placed in The Tech, MIT's student newspaper, which in turn led to a protest rally at the HQ of Lotus Development Corporation--another "look and feel" lawsuit plaintiff."
