Rare Apple Cafe coat from the abandoned Media Hub project

This is a very rare and vintage stadium coat from Apple's abandoned 'Apple Cafe' project. It is in near-new excellent condition sourced from a collector in Southern California.

It is a lined and substantial black Hilton brand jacket in a size Large made in Hong Kong of 100% cotton. There is a large embroidered Apple Cafe global logo on back and a small embroidered Apple rainbow logo on the front. It has a zipper front with snaps at top and bottom and 5 pockets on the front plus one zipper pocket in the lining and cinch pull-strings at the waist. The front photo is lightened to show the pockets better. It was a very limited edition coat for a small group of designers and promoters of the '96 Apple Cafe concept. The Cafe project was shelved in '97 as Steve Jobs returned to Apple and initiated a study for the stand alone 'store within a store' concept in Japan instead.

Here is a Wayback Machine snapshot of the original Welcome to Apple Cafe! at the 'coming soon' webpage. This unique piece of Apple history is priced at $290 plus insured postage at cost. The coat weighs about 3 lbs. boxed. To inquire contact Dave via

update: an identical size XL in unworn condition is also available it is priced at $325

Power Computing VIP Boston Macworld 1996 t-shirt

This is a rare version of the 1996 Power Computing "We're Fighting Back For The Mac" promotional T-shirt featuring the infamous Frank Kozik designed Sluggo/Puggo that launched a lawsuit from Nancy Comics. On the back is Power Computing 1996 Boston Macworld Expo and an unusual MacWorld MVB V.I.P.  on one sleeve. There was a VIP room at the Mama Kin Music Hall in Boston in 1995, not sure about the details for '96. MVB might be Most Valuable Bruin but that is conjecture. The shirt has been worn and washed several times over the years and has some lightly discolored areas that are noticeable up close but none on the area of the graphics. A dry cleaning might help but a washing did not clean it as much as I had hoped. It is still a good wearable or collectible shirt from the days before Steve Jobs ended the Apple clone program. It is a Lofteez brand size XL made in the USA of 100% preshrunk cotton by Fruit of the Loom.

This classic '96 VIP Power Computing T-shirt is priced at $55 with mailing at cost of postage. There is a companion poster and other versions of this shirt available as well, click the Power Computing label below. To inquire contact Dave via

Don’t use cloud backup services to make copies of your Time Machine volumes. Here’s why


Tribute to the Red Green Show - Vintage iMac Collection

For sale are two 333MHz G3 trayloader iMacs. They are the Revision D iMacs released on April 14, 1999 - code named Life Savers - but referred to as FlavorMacs. Both are running Mac OS 9.2 and are upgradeable to OSX but they have very small hard drives and will need the 3.6V clock pram batteries replaced. Matching correct keyboards are also available.

I chose these two iMacs - a Strawberry and a Lime - to sell as a set not for the Christmasy colors but rather as a hat tip to the great Canadian handyman from Possum Lake Ontario, Red Green. A roll of Duct Tape is included. Local pickup only - they are too fragile to risk shipping. Price for the set of two iMacs with original rainbow power cords is $135 CDN or $100USD. There are more G3 iMacs available - click the labels below. To inquire contact Dave via
