A Beginner’s Guide to Mac Context Menus



Classic G3 iMac Flower Power poster. It is 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. Measures 22" x 28". This is a great addition to a vintage Apple collection. The poster is in new condition, but it does have a few very small wrinkles on an edge. It is reasonably priced for the collector at $90 and is available for mailing at cost in a cardboard tube.

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 $58 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

psst: vintage Apple Computer G4 National Security Risk T-Shirt

Classic Macintosh T- Shirt: Been There... Done That!

This appears to be a brand new old stock unworn unwashed Apple computer shirt from back in the day. There are no visible signs of wear, no rips or snags. It is a Hanes Beefy-T size Large made in the USA of 100% preshrunk cotton. It has "Been There... done that!" on the front, and a list of accomplishments from 1984 to 1995 on the back.

This design is on the dust cover of the Apple T-Shirt Book and both sides are shown on page 181. It is the second incarnation of this design (the original which did not meet Apple shirt requirements). This shirt was sold in the Apple Company Store and referred to features Apple had developed and were being copied by Windows 95. There were  lots of Apple shirts in that era but few were chosen to be good enough for the Store.

It is very rare when this shirt is found in the wild in new condition. This highly collectible classic Macintosh shirt from back in the irreverent - and in Microsoft's face - days at Apple is priced at $125 with postage at cost.

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

Apple iPad2 4x6 ft bus shelter posters

2 iPad2 posters: these are 4 foot wide by 6 foot tall bus shelter posters announcing the launch of the Apple iPad2 in black and white. They are uv-treated, double sided and are printed on a heavy coated thick and durable material. They may have a bit of edge wear but both are in very good condition overall.

Posters of this size of such high quality are hard to find and were never available outside of a few major US cities. They are backlit posters that were displayed mainly in LA bus shelters and select movie theaters. The double-sided printing gives an extremely life-like look to the poster when light is placed behind it. They were printed in limited numbers, which makes them rare and hard to get as most are destroyed after use and are not available otherwise. These two highly collectible Apple iPad2 posters are priced at $90 for the set with shipping at cost. To inquire contact Dave via
