Vintage 90's Apple t-shirt IBM I Bought Mac

This is a rare and classic white Apple Macintosh size Large t-shirt. It is from the 1994 MacWorld Expo in Boston. It has the often punned take on IBM: I Bought Mac. It features a rainbow IBM on the front. It is a Hanes Beefy-T size Large made in the USA of 100% cotton. It appears to be brand new old stock; it was stored for many years by an Apple collector in Hawaii.

While quite a popular play on the IBM logo from back in the day, this theme is becoming very rare as they go into collections and seldom come out. Big Blue was not happy with the use of their logo and the picture with the Applized IBM has been removed from page 179 of the '97 edition of the Apple T-Shirt Book. A mid-80's blue variation is shown on page 13 with the text I Build Macs. This shirt is priced at $90 with mailing at cost. To inquire contact Dave via

iWoz - first edition hardcover signed by Woz

iWoz, by Steve Wozniak and Gina Smith, published 2006, 313 pages, hardcover with dust jacket, First Edition, signed with a Sharpie on title page by Woz, in excellent condition.

Once upon a time, computers looked like big, alien vending machines. They had large screens, cryptic switches, huge boxes, and odd lights. But in 1975, a young engineering wizard named Steve Wozniak had an idea: What if you combined computer circuitry with a regular typewriter keyboard and a video screen? The result was the first true personal computer, the Apple I. Widely affordable and easily understood, Wozniak's invention has been rapidly transforming our world ever since. His life--before and after Apple--is a "home-brew" mix of brilliant discovery and adventure, as an engineer, a concert promoter, a fifth-grade teacher, a philanthropist, and an irrepressible prankster. From the invention of the first personal computer to the rise of Apple as an industry giant, iWoz presents a no-holds-barred, rollicking, firsthand account of the humanist inventor who ignited the computer revolution.

This book is priced at $85 and is available for local pickup in Nelson or mailing at cost. To inquire contact Dave via
