Apple Computer was once known for their apple-shaped, multi-colored rainbow logo. In keeping with that style, you could buy all kinds of Apple-branded merchandise -- from gym bags to running shorts, and thermoses to picnic baskets. Take a look!
Here's the original press release that a small California company called Apple released back in January 1984, announcing the launch of their new PC -- the first mass-market personal computer featuring both a graphical user interface and a mouse.
Apple QuickTake digital camera was in stores from 1994 to 1997. There were three models - the 100, 150 and 200 - and offered a 640x480 image resolution.
Computers can be a hobby. And the cost is not prohibitive as you might think. A complete home computer unit can be purchased for around $600, with a more elemental unit offered for $250, or you can build your own.
There is a great deal of controversy in the industry over whether the personal, or home, computer will become a true mass-market product. Some do not believe that the average consumer is interested in learning how to use a complex, relatively expensive home computer.
