Apple M6531 Harman Kardon G4 PowerMac and iMac Pro Speakers

These Apple Pro Speakers feature powerful Harman Kardon audio technology. They connect to your Power Mac G4 desktop systems using a single cable which provides 20 watts of sound (10 watts/channel) to the speakers with a frequency range of 70 hertz to 20 kilohertz.

Apple Pro Speakers are different from the speakers that came with the Power Mac G4 Cube: While the Apple Pro Speakers look very similar to the Power Mac G4 Cube speakers, the Apple Pro Speakers get their power from the computer and require a system with an Apple speaker minijack like the one on the G4 Power Mac tower and G4 iMac. The Power Mac G4 Cube speakers, on the other hand, are USB-powered and are designed to work only with Power Mac G4 Cube systems. Also, the G4 Cube speakers have an external amplifier, whereas the Power Mac G4 has an internal amplifier that supports the Apple Pro Speakers.

The analog-based speakers require systems with an Apple speaker minijack. They are not USB-based speaker. Be advised that the cording is beige not white. They are priced at $50 with shipping at cost. Another set in original box is also available for $85, click the speakers label below. To inquire contact Dave via kootenaymac.tel

a collection of Apple British and Canadian Olympics lapel pins

https://blogger.googleusercontent.com/img/b/R29vZ2xl/AVvXsEiTJxm432jgwzXBlHRruVUcYHVX8WbF0f6Nf8DXL7c8r9_qwpYBdDF6BFQN112SHsv8TOKXX6ZzhXl-eUCMpSv58MHoHW6LLOiP24NWPzb6fqHCrXDI8u_ktKMtNDr8lKaGLAMG/s1600/2010pins.jpg

These brand new, limited edition authentic Apple Olympic enamel pins were designed by Apple Inc. to promote the Vancouver 2010 Olympic Games. The pins were only available at the Vancouver Apple store and they were not available for sale anywhere. The white cardboard backed pin set includes two metal 19mm x 19mm (3/4" by 3/4") pins in original packaging: one is a Canadian maple leaf and the other is the Apple logo and both are designed as App icons. There is one single pin on an Olympic card. The pins not on white cardboard are iPod Nano style pins, also in original packaging and measure 17mm x 38mm (5/8" x 1-1/2"). The backs have ™2010 Apple, Inc. All shown have a butterfly clasp.

There are 26 unused unopened 2010 pins with a value of $25 each - total listed price  would be $650 but the quantity purchase of all the CDN pins shown would lower that to $425. All 26 are available as a set postage paid.

The bottom row on the right side shows a brand new authentic Apple iPad Olympic pin designed by Apple Inc. to promote the London 2012 Summer Olympic Games. These 3 pins were issued in the UK on 8 July, the first day of the London 2012 Olympics, and only in very limited numbers. They were hard to get then and are highly collectible now.

The design is of an iPad, with the Union Jack flag filling the entire screen. The enamel pin badge is on a presentation card in the factory sealed plastic envelope. The Apple logo and details are printed on the back of the card. It has a butterfly clasp and is new and unopened. The list price is $45.

For sale also in the UK set are two new individual pins not on cards: a black iPad and a white iPhone. They are priced at $25 each making the total listing price for the three 2012 British pins at $95 plus $5 postage or add them to the CDN set for $75.

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 several years ago by a collector in California. It was his last one and they have become extremely rare. It is priced at $90USD and that includes postage. To inquire contact Dave via kootenaymac.tel

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."

Vintage Power Computing FIGHT THE POWER 1997 MacWorld T-shirt

Steve Says Fight The Power With Power T-Shirt from the 1997 Mac World Expo in SF, from the short era when Apple licensed out Macs to Power Computing. The label has a PowerComputing tag. It is a size XL made in the USA of 90% cotton and 10% polyester. It is preshrunk and cut larger than sizes you get now. It is a good quality shirt, it has never been worn or washed and has been well stored for almost 20 years. It is still in mint condition with no cracking in the screened graphics.

The back has the stenciled text: THE COUNTER-ASSAULT BEGINS! and below that is PowerComputing MacWorld Expo San Francisco 1997.

It is reasonably priced for the PowerComputing collector at $70 with postage at cost.

Rip.Mix.Burn. iMac G3 Dalmatian poster collection

Vintage original G3 iMac Dalmatian poster collection from the Apple "Rip Mix Burn" campaign, which caused a bit of controversy because the music industry thought that it promoted stealing music. However, the iTunes music store has since proven that wrong. All 3 are from the Think Different era, copyright 2001, Apple part number L13044A.

I bought them from a retired upstate New York Apple dealer several years ago and am just now offering them for sale as a set. They are all factory different: the left one is a very high quality plastic laminate on both sides, the right one is the standard light poster paper and the bottom one is unique in that the poster stock is quite heavy and it has a slightly pebbly matte finish on the front and the back is a kind of waxy gloss finish. Different for sure.

These Blue Dalmatian posters are very rare in the wild now, not even The Missing Bite or eBay has any currently. They measure 22" x 28" each and are all in near mint or new old stock condition and were never displayed except for this photo. Bear in mind they are 17 years old and have been handled a bit - one has a light smudge but there are no pin holes or tears and all will frame up nicely. The price is $280 USD for the 3 poster collection and that includes insured mailing to Canada and USA in a heavy cardboard tube (out of North America adds $30 postage). I prefer to sell as a set. The companion Flower Power poster is also available - click the label below. To inquire contact Dave via kootenaymac.tel
