Forget Your Apple ID Email Address? Here's How To Look It Up


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.

Don’t use cloud backup services to make copies of your Time Machine volumes. Here’s why


Tribute to the Red Green Show - Vintage iMac Collection

For sale are two 333MHz G3 trayloader iMacs. They are the Revision D iMacs released on April 14, 1999 - code named Life Savers - but referred to as FlavorMacs. Both are running Mac OS 9.2 and are upgradeable to OSX but they have very small hard drives and will need the 3.6V clock pram batteries replaced. Matching correct keyboards are also available.

I chose these two iMacs - a Strawberry and a Lime - to sell as a set not for the Christmasy colors but rather as a hat tip to the great Canadian handyman from Possum Lake Ontario, Red Green. A roll of Duct Tape is included. Local pickup only - they are too fragile to risk shipping. Price for the set of two iMacs with original rainbow power cords is $135 CDN or $100USD. There are more G3 iMacs available - click the labels below. To inquire contact Dave via

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 only 2 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 both and the price includes insured postage.

Insanely Great Vintage 1990's Approaching Macintosh sweatshirt with artwork by Berkeley Breathed

This vintage Macintosh sweat shirt comes from the estate sale of an early Apple employee. It's in excellent condition. The Made in USA Signal tag denotes a size 46 (XL) but it fits like a medium. Seriously - 20" under arms by 22" tall. It appears to be new and unwashed - unusual in a shirt made in the early 1990's.

The artwork comes from the Banana Junior computer created by Berkeley Breathed in Bloom County in the mid 80's. Breathed is printed backwards on both the sweatshirt graphic and on the book cover on the bottom left. The back of the shirt has the text: Approaching Macintosh Team, acknowledging the creation of the manual of hands-on modules that prepares the reader to understand and utilize an array of Macintosh software applications.

This extremely rare Apple shirt is priced at $220 plus insured shipping at cost. To inquire contact Dave via

There is also a copy of the Approaching Macintosh second edition available for $120

Approaching Macintosh: A Guide to Learning MacIntosh Software published 1991 by Michael Tchao et al, via ACM Digital Library

The Banana Junior 6000: Computers and Comedy | Computer History Museum: In late 1984, Breathed introduced a new character, the Banana Junior 9000 (later the Banana Junior 6000, though it is unknown whether this was due to an unseen processor downgrade…) which was adopted by young Oliver Wendell Jones.

Released at the same time as the Macintosh was a fictional computer that was 32-bits and offered a staggering 450KB of memory! It proudly declared that it “Computes! Sorts! Prints! Draws! Figures! Doodles! Slices! Dices! Whistle! Whimpers! Dances! Prances!” It was the most insanely great great computer ever devised for a comic strip.

My Favorite iPhone Battery Life Trick


1995 SF MacWorld Macintosh Finder Icon Punk Rock T-Shirt

Rare Vintage 1995 San Francisco MacWorld Punk Rock Bondage A Go Go XL T-shirt

This is what the original owner had to say: "This is the most unique Apple T-shirt remaining in my collection and hardcore Mac collectors won't find this shirt anywhere else. On the front of the shirt there is a 'Happy Mac' system face logo only he's been re-imagined as a punk rocker with a Mohawk hair style and a safety pin in his face! He's also smoking a cigarette, or a more likely a joint! It advertises what must have been a vendor sponsored party called Mac Black '95: Bondage A Go Go January 4, 1995. It's condition is authentically "vintage" (think of it as a plus!) meaning that the shirt has been washed and worn but it is in excellent used condition with no tears, rips, stains, etc. The lettering and images aren't cracking but have some wear I am guessing is a kind of fading. The pics capture the actual condition. It was made back in 1995, so the quality reflects that period when computer tech freebies were usually expensively made when budgets were more flush."

The shirt is an XL Oneita Power-T made in the USA from 100% preshrunk cotton and sewn in Mexico. It is priced at $145 and that includes postage. 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.
