Rare 2003 Apple AppleMusic.com Gibson ES-345 Guitar Poster

This is an ultra rare 2003 AppleMusic.com promo poster featuring a Gibson ES-345 Guitar. It became better known as the Garage Band icon. This poster measures 24" x 36" and is in good condition with few flaws. There are no tack holes or tape tears but there is some edge wear and a few small creases, smudges and marks but it frames up very well. There is a rubber band mark on the back where it was rolled up and stored for several years. In very small print at the bottom right is the 2003 TM for Apple Computer, Inc. All rights reserved.

It is a simple and beautiful poster for AppleMusic.com which was a short-lived music website that was replaced soon after launch by iTunes. During May 2003 this poster appeared as promo ads on the back covers of several well known magazines and then they all disappeared and were replaced by the iTunes Store as Apple Computer and Apple Corps squared off over the use of the name. This memento of a brief yet game-changing piece of Apple history is available for the serious Apple collector at $400 USD and that includes insured postage in a sturdy cardboard tube inside a triangular shipping box. Missingbite had one a few years ago for $599.

Update: a second one is now available with staple holes in each corner - price is $250
and Apple has just brought back Apple Music so this is even a more collectible poster!

There are several magazines with a back cover ad of this poster also available, click the label below. To inquire contact Dave via kootenaymac.tel

WaybackMachine Archives - missingbite.com: Remember AppleMusic.com?
Neither does anyone else. This ultra rare Apple poster heralds the age of the iTunes Store before Apple figured out what to call it.

Power Computing Sluggo Kick-Ass Kozik Poster MacWorld '96

This rare and controversial poster was designed by Frank Kozik, and features his 'Puggo' version of Sluggo from the Nancy comic. The original owner has this to say about the poster he got at the '96 Boston MacWorld: "It was released at Macworld '96 by PowerComputing, the most successful of the Apple Mac clone companies. Few of the posters were handed out, when one of the "SUITS" decided that they would no longer distribute them. They were removed from the booth and the show-floor locations where they were being handed out."

The stories surrounding this poster include real and threatened lawsuits by the Nancy comic distributor over copyright violations and by Intel for being it's trademark being slagged. The word "ass" was also a sore point at Power Computing. This poster has been mounted professionally on a 1/4" wood backing panel that is not removable. There is a damaged corner in the wood at the bottom left of the frame where it fell from it's wall mount. The poster has no damage except the wrinkle outside the black border (click the image to view) and could be professionally restored.

So while the t-shirt version (also available) circulated for a while, this poster quickly disappeared into private collections. Until now. Add it to yours for $125 plus shipping at cost. To inquire contact Dave via kootenaymac.tel

Apple M6531 Harman Kardon G4 PowerMac and iMac Pro Speakers

These Apple Pro Speakers feature powerful Harman Kardon audio technology. They connect to your Power Mac G4 desktop systems using a single cable which provides 20 watts of sound (10 watts/channel) to the speakers with a frequency range of 70 hertz to 20 kilohertz.

Apple Pro Speakers are different from the speakers that came with the Power Mac G4 Cube: While the Apple Pro Speakers look very similar to the Power Mac G4 Cube speakers, the Apple Pro Speakers get their power from the computer and require a system with an Apple speaker minijack like the one on the G4 Power Mac tower and G4 iMac. The Power Mac G4 Cube speakers, on the other hand, are USB-powered and are designed to work only with Power Mac G4 Cube systems. Also, the G4 Cube speakers have an external amplifier, whereas the Power Mac G4 has an internal amplifier that supports the Apple Pro Speakers.

These analog-based speakers require systems with an Apple speaker minijack. They are not USB-based speaker. Be advised that the cording is beige not white. They are priced at $50 with shipping at cost. Another set in original box is also available for $85, click the speakers label below. To inquire contact Dave via kootenaymac.tel

Frank Kozik "Publish or Perish" 1996 Power Computing Seybold poster

"You can take my Mac when you pry my cold dead fingers off the mouse!"
This poster is a very rare and collectible silk screened original print by the famous rock poster artist Frank Kozik. He did a series of prints for the Power Computing company that were part of their guerrilla marketing campaign to "fight back for the Mac" in 1996 and 1997.

The original owner had this to say about the poster: "As you can see this is the one with the girl and the gun and an American flag uttering the greatest line in Mac history! I picked up this one at the P-C booth at the show, it was a very cool and defiant giveaway from the "darkest days" of Apple, some say these were the spark that brought them back from the brink."

Vintage 1997 ComputerWare Mac OS 8 promo T-shirt

ComputerWare received Apple Specialist Authorization from Apple Computer in early 1997 for its dedication to the Macintosh platform. This is a ComputerWare T-shirt promoting the launch of Mac OS 8 that was released on July 26, 1997, shortly after Steve Jobs returned to Apple.

This is a new unworn, unwashed 100% cotton size Large Hanes Beefy-T with fabric components made in the USA and assembled in Mexico.

July '97 is one of the more important periods in Apple history: Jobs becomes the de facto chief of Apple in a boardroom coup and OS 7.7 segues to OS 8 thereby killing the Macintosh Clone program as one of his first moves. This shirt is a spot-on benchmark of the most game-changing turnaround in Apple history. It even features a rare graphic of Anya Major, the original non-iPod wearing runner in the iconic "1984" SuperBowl ad. Finder also became a drill-down drag and drop wunderkind in System 8 that continues today. This shirt is priced for the discerning Mac collector at $80 with postage at cost.

Vintage black Euro Macintox fanged Apple T-shirt

This is an unusual Macintox T-shirt from France that is not seen on this side of the pond. Hard to find much info about it - the .com domain is registered to a German but is not on the web. Go-Daddy has a bit of info on it. Macintox is a term used by a photographer in France and is the handle for a gamer or two there as well. Neat design though! It is a black size XL shirt made of 100% ring spun cotton by Hanes Top-T. It has been washed several times but the Appleized and fanged graphic is still bright and crisp. If anyone has knowledge of this design please post it using the comment link. It is priced at $100 with mailing at cost of 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 $195 or with shipping at cost 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.
