vintage 20" Apple LCD acrylic ADC monitor

20″ Apple acrylic ADC Cinema Display, LCD, 1680 x 1050 native resolution shown in use on a G4 Quicksilver tower in this photo from November 24, 2021. The unit is in very good condition and features a single cord ADC plug that connects to the PowerMac ADC port. A swipe of the finger on the lower right corner powers up the tower and monitor.

The Apple Display Connector (ADC) is a proprietary modification of the DVI connector that combines analog and digital video signals, USB, and power all in one cable. Apple introduced it with the Dual Processor Mystic Power Mac G4 and new ADC monitors in July 2000, removing the industry standard DVI port previously found on the Sawtooth Power Mac G4. ADC remained a standard feature of Power Macs through the 2004 Power Mac G5; ADC was not present on the 2005 Power Mac G5, and Apple resumed use of the DVI connector alongside ADC with the Mirrored Drive Doors Power Mac G4 in August 2002.

Price is $100 plus shipping. The rear leg will be unscrewed for shipping to prevent damage. To inquire contact Dave via

a collection of Apple British and Canadian Olympics lapel pins

These brand new, limited edition authentic Apple Olympic enamel pins were designed by Apple Inc. to promote the Vancouver 2010 Olympic Games. The pins were only available at the Vancouver Apple store and they were not available for sale anywhere. The white cardboard backed pin set includes two metal 19mm x 19mm (3/4" by 3/4") pins in original packaging: one is a Canadian maple leaf and the other is the Apple logo and both are designed as App icons. There is one single pin on an Olympic card. The pins not on white cardboard are iPod Nano style pins, also in original packaging and measure 17mm x 38mm (5/8" x 1-1/2"). The backs have ™2010 Apple, Inc. All shown have a butterfly clasp.

There are 26 unused unopened 2010 pins with a value of $25 each - total listed price  would be $650 but the quantity purchase of all the CDN pins shown would lower that to $425. All 26 are available as a set postage paid.

The bottom row on the right side shows a brand new authentic Apple iPad Olympic pin designed by Apple Inc. to promote the London 2012 Summer Olympic Games. These 3 pins were issued in the UK on 8 July, the first day of the London 2012 Olympics, and only in very limited numbers. They were hard to get then and are highly collectible now.

The design is of an iPad, with the Union Jack flag filling the entire screen. The enamel pin badge is on a presentation card in the factory sealed plastic envelope. The Apple logo and details are printed on the back of the card. It has a butterfly clasp and is new and unopened. The list price is $45.

For sale also in the UK set are two new individual pins not on cards: a black iPad and a white iPhone. They are priced at $25 each making the total listing price for the three 2012 British pins at $95 plus $5 postage or add them to the CDN set for $75.

Mounted 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 professionally mounted 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 your collection for $145 plus shipping at cost. To inquire contact Dave via

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 $190 for the set with shipping at cost. To inquire contact Dave via

- another set of the iPad2 posters are available but they were bent on one side in mailing and are $90/set or both sets for $250 plus postage - photos here

a large image of Apple's pirate banner being painted

In January 1983, Steve Jobs gathered a group of Apple employees at an off-site retreat in Carmel, California. The group was in the midst of developing the Mac, the company’s hugely ambitious personal computer—and some employees felt the project was losing its scrappy spirit. And so Jobs offered a maxim meant to motivate the developers: “It’s better to be a pirate than join the navy.”

For the Mac team, the message stuck. When they moved to a larger building some months later, in August 1983, they even ran up their very own pirate flag, painted by Mac graphic designer Susan Kare. It featured the traditional skull and crossbones with a twist: “The final touch was the requisite eye-patch, rendered by a large, rainbow-colored Apple logo decal,” Hertzfeld recalls on his website.

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 $85 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

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

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.
