Rare Apple Powerbook Engineering Project Team T-Shirt

This t-shirt was made for Apple's CPU Development Team when the Macintosh Portable reached its design verification test (DVT) milestone. Steve Jobs had always envisioned a notebook-sized computer and the Portable predates the iPad by 20 years. These 1989 Apple employee t-shirts were printed in very small quantities and handed out to internal Apple engineering staff and project team members only. This shirt was never offered for sale and is a rare part of Apple history. It is shown on page 28 of the Apple T-Shirts Book. The dinosaur head shows a profile of the Portable.

This shirt is new and has never been worn or washed and is from the collection of a 20 year Apple employee. It is a size Large Super Hi-Cru made in the USA of 100% cotton by Steadman. The dinosaur graphics are silkscreened on the back and CPU Development Team and an Apple is on the front left chest. It is in mint condition and is priced at $75 with postage at cost.

Rare Power Computing Kozik Macworld "The Counter Assault Begins" poster

This is a rare and hard to find Frank Kozik "The Counter Assault Begins" poster. It measures approximately 21" x 34". The main text is: Power Computing - The Counter-Assault Begins. Macworld San Francisco 1997. Join Power Computing in Fighting Back for the Mac!

The original owner had this to say about it: "This poster is in great condition and has been in a protective storage since I acquired it during the 1997 Macworld Expo in San Francisco and was unrolled only to take this picture." This Apple clone poster was designed by punk rock poster artist Frank Kozik and was distributed at Macworld. "Kozik is best known to Macintosh users for these in-your-face illustrations for now-defunct Mac-clone maker Power Computing."

"Power Computing was the most successful of the Mac clone manufacturers in the mid to late 90's prior to Steve Job's return to Apple and putting an end to all the clone makers. Power Computing's booth at Macworld '97 in San Francisco was a big party. They rented Hummers, had mini flags with the company logo hanging from the front of the hood field marshal-style, and wore urban camouflage fatigues and berets."

"Their slogan was 'We're fighting back for the Mac!'  Their stated enemy was Microsoft, which pissed off the Microsoft people, as they would stand with a microphone on their stage and hurl barbs and insults in the direction of the Microsoft pavilion."

Business Insider

Vintage Apple IIe and IIgs Point of Sale Poster

This is a giant double sided vintage Apple II poster from the early days before the word *enhanced* was added to the keyboard on the IIe, possibly '84 to very early '85. One one side is the Apple IIe keyboard and on the reverse is the Apple IIGS keyboard. This is an Apple Dealer Point of Sale poster and is very rare.

It is not mint but would be a fine addition to any early Apple collection. There are a few creases and scratches, but no tears. There are pin holes in each corner, a scratch and pin size puncture in the tab key area and one small spot in the blue on one side looks touched up with a marker. This poster measures 20" high and 56" wide on heavy card stock poster paper and the photos show it on the fridge held in place with magnets. Not kidding here, it's one big poster and would make a great backdrop for a collection of classic beige Macs. It is reasonably priced at $75 with shipping in a heavy cardboard tube at cost of postage depending on location. To inquire contact Dave via kootenaymac.tel

domain for sale AltaColumbia.com

AltaColumbia - a Cascadia concepts site
Shown is a screen shot of a parked 12 page website designed to promote the history, culture and beauty of the Pacific northwest coastal rain forest from Northern California to the Alaska panhandle. It is a link based reference site that covers all aspects of Cascadia: news, First Nations, touring, parks, wineries, crafts, maps, environment, legends, lore and political autonomy.

The original intent was a localized search engine, hence the Alta (like Vista), for the physical area of the Columbia River drainage basin. You can have the website as well as the domain name altacolumbia.com. Another use of the name might be more Canadian as it combines both Alberta and British Columbia. A more subtle concept was the "high" meaning of alta in Latin as the West moved towards legalization of weed. Additionally there is interest in independence and autonomy as a Pac Rim nation state. Your choice.

The AltaColumbia link at the top goes to a Wayback Machine capture of the entire site from 2006 - it was active for 9 years and had 100K visits. You can navigate through it by clicking the sub headers at the top of the page. The site was built on a Mac in Adobe Go-Live and is editable in Dreamweaver. It is currently parked where it was hosted in Nelson BC and can be reactivated and hosted cheaply or moved easily to another IP or you can start your own site from scratch anywhere with the purchase of the domain name. Accepting offers. To inquire contact Dave via kootenaymac.tel

AppleInsider

Rare Apple Cafe coat from the abandoned Media Hub project

This is a very rare and vintage stadium coat from Apple's abandoned 'Apple Cafe' project. It is in near-new excellent condition sourced from a collector in Southern California.

It is a lined and substantial black Hilton brand jacket in a size Large made in Hong Kong of 100% cotton. There is a large embroidered Apple Cafe global logo on back and a small embroidered Apple rainbow logo on the front. It has a zipper front with snaps at top and bottom and 5 pockets on the front plus one zipper pocket in the lining and cinch pull-strings at the waist. The front photo is lightened to show the pockets better. It was a very limited edition coat for a small group of designers and promoters of the '96 Apple Cafe concept. The Cafe project was shelved in '97 as Steve Jobs returned to Apple and initiated a study for the stand alone 'store within a store' concept in Japan instead.

Here is a Wayback Machine snapshot of the original Welcome to Apple Cafe! at the Applecafe.com 'coming soon' webpage. This unique piece of Apple history is priced at $290 plus insured postage at cost. The coat weighs about 3 lbs. boxed. To inquire contact Dave via kootenaymac.tel

update: an identical size XL in unworn condition is also available it is priced at $325
