Wow, I don’t even know where to start. I didn’t discover Apple until 1989, in college, the night some sort of paper was due. It was probably midnight and I was ready to chuck my typewriter and clumpy liquid paper, when my downstairs neighbor suggested I try out his cute little Mac Plus.
O. M. G.
It took me literally 20 minutes to digest and be up and running. Backspace deletes!!! I was moving sentences, paragraphs, rewriting on the fly! Oh what a night… but I digress.
I cam across this site though another blog, and as you will see, Apple offered nifty promotional products as far back as 1983. I would have SO gotten that hook rug for my Mom. She would have hung it in the kitchen, next to the fruit bowl, and called it art. And the obviously I would have bought the race car too, duh.
macmothership.comhas this catalog and some awesome early Apple advertising.
