Macintosh 30th Anniversary Women's T-Shirt Happy Birthday Mac

This is a rare women's cut size XL Apple 30th Anniversary Happy Birthday Mac T-shirt. It is a limited edition commemorative shirt for employees and dealers only and is already very hard to find. The front has a rainbow 3 and the text Happy Birthday, Mac. It celebrates the launch of the 128K Macintosh in 1984. The back reads: Celebrating 30 years of making computers people love.

This is a brand new, never worn, never washed highly collectible Apple shirt made by American Apparel of 100% combed cotton. The tag reads: This t-shirt was sewn by 9 people in a sweatshop-free environment in Downtown LA, where they are paid fair wages and have access to healthcare and benefits. This women's size XL shirt might run a bit small so here are the measurements: 17" across bust, 26" from top of back neckline to hem and 7 inch sleeve. Two mens shirts are also available. They are all priced at $50 each with mailing at cost of postage.

The matching white 30th Anniversary Happy Birthday Mac poster is also available and a shirt can be shipped in the poster tube to save on shipping. The 24 by 36 inch poster is priced at $50. To inquire contact Dave via

Rare Apple Special Event Flint Center iMac DV Launch Poster

On October 5th, 1999, Steve Jobs held a special event at the Flint Center for the Performing Arts in Cupertino, California where he introduced iMovie - and made one live. Apple was launching a new series of the iMac family with a semi transparent enclosure so the inside is visible, a feature that Jobs demonstrated by moving his hand behind it during the presentation. The new iMacs were the the iMac DV ("digital video") and iMac DV Special Edition with a larger hard drive and more ram. This is a very rare collectable poster as there are other versions of the Think Different "Cool" graphite iMac poster but this is the only one to announce the launch date at the Flint Center.

Very few of these were made as the iMac DV launch poster was for a one night local event and it was not distributed to dealers like most Apple posters. It measures approximately 24 by 36 inches and is in perfect condition. It is priced at $225 plus insured mailing in a heavy cardboard tube at cost of postage. There are other Think Different posters available, click the labels below. To inquire contact Dave via

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."

Harmon Kardon SoundSticks III speakers

These SoundSticks are brand new in the original sealed retail box, complete with manufacturer's warranty. Available for local pickup in Nelson BC for $195CDN or with shipping at cost in Canada depending on location. To inquire contact Dave via

From the manufacturer: Few multimedia sound systems can boast that their predecessor was part of the permanent collection at New York City’s Museum of Modern Art (MoMA), but that’s exactly the claim the SoundSticks III speaker system can make. Taking its older sibling’s celebrated design even further, the SoundSticks III look is cutting-edge with a modern industrial design aesthetic, elegant black accents and a luminescent white LED glow. And though the SoundSticks III system may look like a visitor from the future with its transparent speaker covers, its exceptional performance makes it a more-than-worthy encore to its pop-culture predecessor.

Review | Cult of Mac: It’s rare that you can point to an accessory and say “Jony Ive” designed that, but with the Harman Kardon Soundsticks, that’s literally true.
