White Apple 4th gen. 20GB iPod in original box with accessories

This is a 4th generation 20GB white Apple iPod that became known as the Classic by gen 6. It comes in the original box, with ear buds, power adapter, usb charging cable, instruction manual and software disk. The box and sleeve are in excellent condition.

This iPod has not been used much and only in a protective cover. After initial purchase and setup it has mostly been stored in the box. The metal back cover shows some light scuffing as is typical for these models. The monochrome display screen is clear and bright, the battery takes and holds a charge, and the click wheel functions properly. All in all, a very nice Apple iPod collectible. Included also is the Apple Store drawstring bag it was placed in at point of purchase. It is priced at $180 with mailing in a second cardboard box at cost of postage to destination.

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.

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
