Rare 2003 Apple AppleMusic.com Gibson ES-345 Guitar Poster

This is an ultra rare 2003 AppleMusic.com promo poster featuring a Gibson ES-345 Guitar. It became better known as the Garage Band icon. This poster measures 24" x 36" and is in good condition with few flaws. There are no tack holes or tape tears but there is some edge wear and a few small creases, smudges and marks but it frames up very well. There is a rubber band mark on the back where it was rolled up and stored for several years. In very small print at the bottom right is the 2003 TM for Apple Computer, Inc. All rights reserved.

It is a simple and beautiful poster for AppleMusic.com which was a short-lived music website that was replaced soon after launch by iTunes. During May 2003 this poster appeared as promo ads on the back covers of several well known magazines and then they all disappeared and were replaced by the iTunes Store as Apple Computer and Apple Corps squared off over the use of the name. This memento of a brief yet game-changing piece of Apple history is available for the serious Apple collector at $400 USD and that includes insured postage in a sturdy cardboard tube inside a triangular shipping box. Missingbite had one a few years ago for $599.

Update: a second one is now available with staple holes in each corner - price is $250

and Apple has just brought back Apple Music so this is even a more collectible poster!

There are several magazines with a back cover ad of this poster also available, click the label below. To inquire contact Dave via kootenaymac.tel

Apple says all iOS devices, Macs affected by processor flaws


Frank Kozik "Publish or Perish" 1996 Power Computing Seybold poster

"You can take my Mac when you pry my cold dead fingers off the mouse!"
This poster is a very rare and collectible silk screened original print by the famous rock poster artist Frank Kozik. He did a series of prints for the Power Computing company that were part of their guerrilla marketing campaign to "fight back for the Mac" in 1996 and 1997.

The original owner had this to say about the poster: "As you can see this is the one with the girl and the gun and an American flag uttering the greatest line in Mac history! I picked up this one at the P-C booth at the show, it was a very cool and defiant giveaway from the "darkest days" of Apple, some say these were the spark that brought them back from the brink."

1995 SF MacWorld Macintosh Finder Icon Punk Rock T-Shirt

Rare Vintage 1995 San Francisco MacWorld Punk Rock Bondage A Go Go T-shirt

This is what the original owner had to say: "This is the most unique Apple T-shirt remaining in my collection and hardcore Mac collectors won't find this shirt anywhere else. On the front of the shirt there is a 'Happy Mac' system face logo only he's been re-imagined as a punk rocker with a Mohawk hair style and a safety pin in his face! He's also smoking a cigarette, or a more likely a joint! It advertises what must have been a vendor sponsored party called Mac Black '95: Bondage A Go Go January 4, 1995. It's condition is authentically "vintage" (think of it as a plus!) meaning that the shirt has been washed and worn but it is in excellent used condition with no tears, rips, stains, etc. The lettering and images aren't cracking but have some wear I am guessing is a kind of fading. The pics capture the actual condition. It was made back in 1995, so the quality reflects that period when computer tech freebies were usually expensively made when budgets were more flush."

The shirt is an XL Oneita Power-T made in the USA from 100% preshrunk cotton and sewn in Mexico. It is priced at $145 and that includes postage. To inquire contact Dave via kootenaymac.tel

(note the Mac the Knife shark on the back. and if this does not sell then it is fine with me - in 12 years of collecting I have never seen another one - just sayin'... )

No, Apple’s throttling of iPhones with aging batteries is not planned obsolescence


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 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."

Apple Computer 1984 Macintosh Picasso Logo Sweatshirt

For sale is an Apple Computer Picasso logo sweatshirt. It commemorates the introduction of the original Mac 128K in 1984. The original owner obtained this sweat shirt in the mid 80's while working for an Authorized Apple Dealer. The front has the "Picasso-style" rendering of the original Macintosh. This is the same artwork that was on the original Mac’s packaging. The back has a red Apple in the Garamond font. It is a Hanes cotton/polyester size Large 42-44 made in the USA.

This shirt has been never worn or washed, but has light spotting on the shoulder near the collar due to long term storage and a dry cleaner should be able to remove the two brownish spots.

What Apple should have done instead of slowing down iPhones with aging batteries


Steve Jobs bulk mailing letter to Power Computing customers circa 1997

This is an Apple marketing letter from Steve Jobs to customers of Power Computing, the maker of Macintosh clones in the 1990s. The letter was written shortly after Apple bought Power Computing in July 1997, and was mailed specifically to customers who had recently purchased a Power Computing computer. It features the rainbow-colored apple in the letterhead and is a digital reproduction of Jobs signature that was used for bulk-mailed letters.

The letter had three purposes: to reassure those customers that Apple will provide support, to promote Apple's new computers, and to invite the customers to take advantage of a Mac OS upgrade offer. The letter comes from a very important time in Apple's history: Jobs had just returned to Apple to take over the CEO position in July of that year and had started the process of canceling all Mac clone licensing agreements. The letter would make a very nice addition to an Apple Macintosh or Power Computing collection.
"First things first: As a co-founder of Apple Computer, I want to welcome you back to the family. (The fact is, of course, that you never really left; most Power Computing customers were Apple customers to begin with, and still are.)"
"Believe me, you'll see some hot new machines in the months ahead. The new Power Macintosh computers will feature new architectures designed to boost performance. These new machines will set speed records for desktop and notebook comptuers — and will confirm Mac OS as the platform of choice for education and creative professions."
"As Apple introduces these new models in the coming months, we'll also be exploring new ways to deliver and custom-configure our products. And we plan to adopt some of the innovative approaches to selling that made Power Computing such a big hit with customers."
The letter is in very good condition. It has two original folds and signs of handling but no tears or other folds and can be mailed at the cost of postage in a flat envelope or rolled in a tube. It is priced at $30. To inquire contact Dave via kootenaymac.tel

Power Computing Sluggo Kick-Ass Kozik Poster MacWorld '96

This rare and controversial poster was designed by Frank Kozik, and features his 'Puggo' version of Sluggo from the Nancy comic. The original owner has this to say about the poster he got at the '96 Boston MacWorld: "It was released at Macworld '96 by PowerComputing, the most successful of the Apple Mac clone companies. Few of the posters were handed out, when one of the "SUITS" decided that they would no longer distribute them. They were removed from the booth and the show-floor locations where they were being handed out."

The stories surrounding this poster include real and threatened lawsuits by the Nancy comic distributor over copyright violations and by Intel for being it's trademark being slagged. The word "ass" was also a sore point at Power Computing. This poster has been mounted professionally on a 1/4" wood backing panel that is not removable. There is a damaged corner in the wood at the bottom left of the frame where it fell from it's wall mount. The poster has no damage except the wrinkle outside the black border (click the image to view) and could be professionally restored.

So while the t-shirt version (also available) circulated for a while, this poster quickly disappeared into private collections. Until now. Add it to yours for $125 plus shipping at cost. To inquire contact Dave via kootenaymac.tel

A Beginner’s Guide to Mac Context Menus



Classic G3 iMac Flower Power poster. It is 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. Measures 22" x 28". This is a great addition to a vintage Apple collection. The poster is in new condition, but it does have a few very small wrinkles on an edge. It is reasonably priced for the collector at $90 and is available for mailing at cost in a cardboard tube.
