16 VINTAGE APPLE ADS

02 Nov 2010

Apple Computer Inc. was established on April 1st, 1976 and incorporated on January 3rd, 1977.  At the time, the “personal computer” was a bit more of a novelty than the irreplaceable device it has become today.  These 16 vintage ads, showing products like the Apple-1 and Apple II, display the beginnings of Mac’s brand identity.

Who bought a computer four decades ago?  In Apple’s words from an ad published in 1979, “Thousands of people have already discovered the Apple computer – businessmen, students, hobbyists.  They’re using their Apples for financial management, complex problem solving – and just plain fun.”  Let’s take a moment to look back at the Apple brand and see how the times have changed and maybe, how they haven’t.

Hoax Back to the Future Time Circuits Destination Time July 6th 5th 2010

The purposefully misspelled iPhone app “DELORAEN TIME CIRCUIT” is the key to yesterday’s BACK TO THE FUTURE time circuit HOAX.  What happened: word was spreading that July 5th or 6th 2010 was the exact day Marty travels TO THE FUTURE.  Unfortunately, Hoverboards are still 5 years away – (October 21st 2015).  A screenshot of the app set to July 5th, or July 6th began to make its way around social networking sites and email forwards.  Needless to say, 2010 is never mentioned in BTTF 1, 2 or 3.  For a full index of Marty’s time trips, CLICK HERE.
