Macintosh - iPod 20th Anniversary Poster 1984-2004

This MacWorld 1984-2004 poster commemorates the original commercial from 1984 and pays homage to George Orwell's futuristic novel "1984". It measures 24" x 36" and reads, "1984 - 2004". The poster has the image of Anya Major, the runner from the famous Super Bowl 1984 television commercial, only this time she is wearing an iPod.

This is the poster from Apple's 1984 Superbowl Commercial, modified for 2004 with the lady hammer thrower in the Picasso-style top now wearing an iPod as well. That commercial only aired once in 1984 and this updated poster was available only at the Apple booth during MacWorld San Francisco 2004. Apple has not released any posters since 2004.

This highly collectible Apple iPod poster is available for $75 USD plus postage - 2 available. It has been discontinued and is only available from private owners - be one. To inquire contact Dave via kootenaymac.tel

Here's to Anya Major, who almost didn't happen!

click for full article (at former The Art of Wealth website via Wayback Machine)


When the Apple 1984 commercial was shown to Apple's board, in order to get approval of the high cost of showing the commercial at the Superbowl, the response was unexpected. Every external board member reacted negatively, with the influential Mike Markkula actually stating that Apple should start looking for another ad agency. One of the board members claimed it was the worst commercial he had ever seen.

vintage 17" Apple LCD acrylic ADC monitor

In May 2001, Apple released a 17" Studio Display (Model No: M7649) with a native resolution of 1280x1024. The Apple Display Connector (ADC) is a proprietary modification of the DVI connector that combines analog and digital video signals, USB, and power all in one cable. The unit is in very good condition and features a single cord ADC plug that connects to the PowerMac ADC port. A swipe of the finger on the lower right corner powers up the tower and monitor. Photo shows monitor in use on a G4 Quicksilver tower in this photo from November 24, 2021.

Apple introduced it with the Dual Processor Mystic Power Mac G4 and new ADC monitors in July 2000, removing the industry standard DVI port previously found on the Sawtooth Power Mac G4. ADC remained a standard feature of Power Macs through the 2004 Power Mac G5; ADC was not present on the 2005 Power Mac G5, and Apple resumed use of the DVI connector alongside ADC with the Mirrored Drive Doors Power Mac G4 in August 2002.

Vintage Embroidered Apple Rainbow Logo sticker collection

A baker's dozen of vintage embroidered bitten rainbow Apple logo stickers. Apple supplied them as dealership promotional items from the 80's to mid 90's. They are the classic 6 color logos measuring almost an inch high. There were at least 2 styles - some were on strips of paper 3 to a strip and some were on a roll. Some had paper backing and some were attached to plastic strips.

They could originally be stuck onto most surfaces, and ironed or sewn onto clothing. Over the years the glue has dried on some so no promises on them retaining any adhesive qualities. They are new-old-stock and came from various sources as sets of 3, 4 and 6. They are available as a complete collection of 13 for $90 and that includes postage.

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."

update: a second pin - very slightly scuffed - is available for $50

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. Missingbite had one a few years ago for $599.

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 $330 US 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). Individual ones are $110 each plus postage but 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

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 professionally mounted 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 your collection for $145 plus shipping at cost. To inquire contact Dave via kootenaymac.tel
