January 24, 2014

To celebrate the 30th anniversary of the Macintosh computer on January 24, 2014 we launch a System 1.1 emulation - Google group members are invited to boot the emulation one day before the official launch.

This online Macintosh System 1.1 emulation is a homage to the most innovative operating system in computer history. The emulation offers a complete "System 1" on a 1984 Macintosh 1 bit, black and white display.

Please visit

Usage: On the page click the "Test drive Macintosh System 1" link and wait about 30 seconds until Macintosh System 1 is completely loaded. If you're having trouble double clicking, trying slowing down your taps to about one per second. If you are using  Internet Explorer and the System doesn't boot after 30 seconds please use Firefox Browser and have fun!

Bring back your 68k memories!

In Memory of Steve Jobs | 1955 - 2011

October 6, 2011

Steven P. Jobs passed away on October 5th, 2011 after a long struggle with pancreatic cancer. He was just 56 years old. We mourn his passing, and wish his family the very best. The Apple chairman and former CEO who made personal computers, smartphones, tablets, and digital animation mass-market products passed away today. We're going to miss him. Deeply, and personally.

In 1976 he started Apple in a garage. Together with Steve Wozniak, he shipped the first true fully-built personal computer, the Apple I. He drove development of the Mac, understanding that it was the future of computers. The great thing that we would all see.

Prior to Steve Jobs, computers were alien to most of us. They were accessible to few people without an engineering degree. Not merely because of their complex operating procedures, but also because they were so cold and so inhuman. Jobs understood that they could be something more than that. That while computers would never be people, he could endow them with humanity. He could transform them into machines that not only anyone could use, but that everyday people would enjoy using thanks to the art of great design. He made them something that would be part of our lives. And he did that again and again.

He changed the way movies are made, the way music is sold, the way stories are told, the very way we interact with the world around us. He helped us work, and gave us new ways to play. He was a myth made man. Apple has lost a visionary and creative genius, and the world has lost an amazing human being. Steve leaves behind a company that only he could build, and his spirit will forever be the foundation of Apple.

With the economy in the tank, you or someone you know is probably putting off the decision to buy a new Mac. But what about a used Mac? Sure, it doesn’t have all the glitz of a shiny new unibody MacBook, but an older-generation MacBook might just do the trick for a lot less money. Heck, you’d be surprised at how well an older iBook G4 can still handle just about everything that you might want to do.

Please visit my new project: ! If you’re looking for a used Apple Macintosh or Mac-compatible peripherals, at you can find a solution that fits your budget.

Thumb drive made out of an old Apple keyboard

Thumb drive made out of an old Apple keyboard - 04 Jul 2009

If you’re sick of all these new Apple fanatics and you want to show them all that you’ve been a diehard fan since the early days, even sticking by the company through Newton and Pippin, then this thumb drive made out of an old Apple keyboard is for you.

Ingredients: an old Apple keyboard, a thumb drive you’re willing to destroy, some workbench-y tools and whatnot, time.

The basic process then involves gutting a regular thumb drive, carving out a notch for it to fit into inside an old Return key, and grabbing the Apple logo from another area of the keyboard. Sand, cut, glue, solder, slice, etc. and you’ll eventually have yourself a nice retro USB thumb drive.

Please observe the detailed directions at Instructables. My directions were NOT very helpful and may result in massive bleeding. By

Apple Lisa Operating System Reference Manual

Apple Lisa Operating System Reference Manual (PDF, 1983) - 28 May 2009

Apple Lisa Operating System Reference Manual (PDF, 1983)

The Apple Lisa from 1983 was the first consumer-class computer with a graphical user interface and significantly more advanced than the 1984 Macintosh, which had a similar UI, but a comparatively primitive underlying OS. Here, I present a searchable PDF of the rare “Operating System Reference Manual for the Lisa” (1983), as well as a quick overview of the OS and how it compares to UNIX.

Download the Lisa Operatin manual here:
