Original Apple iBook Promo Poster.... go, go, go

Awesome memento from MacWorld New York 1999
A classic stroll down memory lane: the Tangerine iBook Promo Poster.... go, go, go

It measures 24" x 36 " and is one-sided heavy paper. This poster was for promotional purposes only and was not sold in Apple stores, so it is extremely hard to find. It is the companion to the Tangerine GO iBook t-shirt - also available. The price is $90 plus postage. Quantity discounts for posters - keeping trips to Post Office to a minimum is important these days. To inquire contact Dave via kootenaymac.tel

1996 Boston MacWorld Expo Power Computing shirt

This is an awesome piece of Macintosh history - an original 1996 MacWorld Expo Boston shirt from Power Computing - during Apple Computer's brief experiment with mac clones and system software licensing prior to the reappearance of Steve Jobs and the iMac revolution. It has some wrinkles from storage but has never been worn. This is a size XL Lofteez brand shirt from Fruit of the Loom made in the USA of 100% preshrunk cotton.

The front graphic was designed by Frank Kozik, and features his 'Puggo' version of Sluggo from the Nancy comic that provoked threats of a lawsuit and is a variation on his "Let's Kick Intel's Ass" that was pulled earlier. This super rare MacWorld Mac clone T-shirt is priced at $125 with mailing at cost of postage. To inquire contact Dave via kootenaymac.tel

Rare large Macintosh Finder "Happy Face" window stickers

These are rare brand new unused Apple dealer Mac OS Finder store window stickers measuring 8" x 10". The photo was taken with light shining through to show what they will look like when the backing paper is removed - if it is ever removed; the value may be in the unused condition or framed. This is the splash screen boot icon of System 8 (and then 9 and X) that replaced the Happy Mac icon with the introduction of the PowerPC.

There are 3 available; they are rare and long out of production. These are not decals but cling stickers that were used on the inside of the display windows of Apple stores and resellers dating back to the mid 90's. They are installed like the clear protective screens on an iDevice. They are priced for the serious collector at $75 each - buy the 3 for $190 and the price includes insured 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

Vintage Apple postcard collection

This is a collection of vintage Apple postcards and a Jobs/Mac stamp plus one card made on a Mac clone. Also included as a bonus are two related cards.

The far left 'It's Springtime' card shows a G4 iMac from Mac House in Berlin. At the bottom far left is a new unused bitten rainbow Apple card from the Think Different era. It has a 1-800 number for an Apple authorized reseller and shows the url www.apple.co.za.

In the center left row is a Come See the Apple Computer postcard from California that was sent in the 80's to a client from the Santa Rosa California Computer Center. It features the IIc, IIe, IIGS, the Mac Plus and the Mac SE and offers a rebate on selected add-ons. It is the only one that has been mailed.

The orange Whoa! card is an unused student promo from Australia. The Bondi iMac is from the Design Museum and credits Jonathan Ive - 1998.

Next column are 3 Think Different cards and at the bottom is a Steve Jobs stamp from the Republic of Guine-Bissau in Africa in MNH condition.

There is no handwriting on it and no stamp or postmark and the condition is VG. Bottom right is just a bonus card that looks like the image Apple used on the Yosemite OS.

Original Apple "Crazy Ones" Think Different poem box

This is the shipping box for the original Apple Think Different series posters. It is only the box that opens like a book, no posters are included. The box, as pictured, is pretty beat it up. It has discolored spots, it has been flattened at some point in its history, has some creases as shown in the pictures. It is a famous Apple poem however and the original boxes are so very rare that I thought it'd be a collectible to someone.

The back has the original shipping label from Apple Computers to a school in Palm Desert. Priced at $60, plus postage. To inquire contact Dave via kootenaymac.tel

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 kootenaymac.tel

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.

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. The companion Flower Power poster is also available - click the label below. To inquire contact Dave via kootenaymac.tel
