Many thanks, Ted, for another great contribution!
An original Apple computer from 1976 has sold at auction for nearly $388,000.
Known as the Apple 1, it was one of the first Apple computers ever built.
It sold Monday for $387,750 at a Christie's online-only auction. Bolaffi, an Italian collections company, says in a statement that it bought the computer. The seller was a retired school psychologist from Sacramento, Calif.
Vintage Apple products have become a hot item since Steve Jobs' death in October 2011. Jobs joined forces with Steve Wozniak to build computer prototypes in a California garage, and Wozniak built the Apple 1.
Another Apple 1 was sold in May for a record $671,400 by a German auction house. It broke a record of $640,000 set in November.
In a recent acquisition, I found an interesting hardware book from Apple which details pinouts, switch settings & more for Apple's hardware - computers, cards, drives, plotters, etc. The Apple Peripheral Interface Guide can now be found in the Apple Hardware Documentation Library. This is a must-have addition to anyone's library!
We today received a very large contribution of A+ Magazines from Raj Rajadhyaksha - 5 complete years plus parts of several other years we were missing. I have updated the A+ Magazine page to reflect the issues I have in my possession, as well as those (in gray) which we still need.
I am currently finishing the scanning of the inCider issues I have in possession, & once that is done, I will commence the scanning of the A+ magazine issues.
Many thanks to Raj!
After being on vacation the past few weeks (traveling the southwest US), I'm now back in the saddle. I made a few minor changes today: (1) I reset the flag counters back to zero, & we'll display only the number of users from the top 30 countries; and (2) I changed the hit counter at the bottom of the home page, which is hopefully easier to read (& will display more reliably). I'll also be getting back to scanning the inCider magazines, and then the A+ magazines. If you have any of the missing issues you can contribute, please contact me.
We have today added the Applied Engineering RAMFactor DOS 3.3 Utilities software disk as well as the Videx Ultraterm Utilities disk thanks to the contribution from Howard J. Poe!
I also updated the Apple II Power Supply Pinouts document in the Apple II FAQs Library to now include the pinouts for the Laser 128 computer power supply unit.
