Your Chance to Win 20th Anniversary Macintosh!

Posted by Jeff Campbell in "Classic Apple" @ 12:30 PM

http://news.cnet.com/8301-17938_105...subj=News-Apple

"In 1997, I was watching "The X-Files," going to college, and using floppy disks in computer class. In 1997, Apple was showing off with the Twentieth Anniversary Macintosh (also known as TAM), a sleek and imaginative take on the personal computer."

Hurry though, the auction ends tonight! I think I'd rather have a couple MacBook Airs though. Or a MacBook Air and one of those fancy new displays!

Lisa 1 Goes for $15,000 on eBay

Posted by Jeff Campbell in "Classic Apple" @ 01:00 PM

"Rare Vintage Apple items are popular these days. An Apple Lisa 1 put up for sale on eBay last week has sold for $15,000 after 11 bids! The unit, in working condition, belonged to a former member of the Lisa production team at Apple and was sold by his brother. In an email received by Cult of Mac, the seller noted that the buyer intends to display the system in a museum in Italy."

Amazing that it was still in working order. I particularly like the 5.25" floppy drives.

"vanstinator was one of several readers to point out that Christie's is holding an auction for one of the original Apple 1 machines, complete with a manual, the original shipping box, and the letter from Steve Jobs to the owner."

Here is the link to the Christie's auction in case you are curious.

"Vintage Macs come and go, Vintage Mac Museums typically tend to Grow. One particularly impressive Museum is Moving On. The Mac Museum of Franklin Park, NJ has been put up for sale on eBay."

The Mac Museum of New Jersey has put their collection up for sale, but you can only buy it whole. It ends on October 7th so head on over to eBay if you have a need for some vintage stuff, including a Lisa. So far the auction is just over $2,000.00 USD.

Want a Piece of Apple's Fifth Avenue Store?

Posted by Jeff Campbell in "Apple News" @ 09:00 AM

"This one puts the "cult" back in "cult of mac:" someone is auctioning off a broken piece of glass from Apple's Fifth Avenue store on eBay. It's a step from the retail locale's elegant glass staircase, to be precise."

From the ad on eBay: "When these are new, they cost 10K to buy from the German glass-makers. So, since it's cracked I figure it's worth at least $2500, considering the steps are all custom ordered.You could use it as a coffee table on top of some cinder blocks, or just keep it for the sake of keeping it."

Ridiculous.

iPhone and Toilet Don't Mix

Posted by Jeff Campbell in "Apple iPhone & iPod Touch" @ 08:00 AM

"Faithful German Macenstein reader Tim Schiller came across this listing on eBay for what can only be described as 'THE must-have iPhone accessory of 2009'."

It is funny, at least to me, that his wife dropped her iPhone in the toilet twice and all it took was this little sign to remind her that no, it isn't the place to put your iPhone. At least that is the story. Act fast if you want one, he only has 8 left, at least he had that may when I went to the site on Tuesday.

Attention Collectors! Apple I on eBay

Posted by Jeff Campbell in "Classic Apple" @ 11:00 AM

http://www.tuaw.com/2009/11/18/foun...-documentation/

"A few months ago, we provided details of an auction that featured a Mac that had been given to Star Trek creator Gene Roddenberry by Apple. If you missed your chance to pick up that prime item, now you have an opportunity to own an Apple that is even more rare: an Apple-1 (also known as the Apple I) that's currently on auction on eBay."

The auction is sitting at $50,000.00 USD, but that is the starting price since it hasn't received any bids. Interesting bit of history for a collector, but a pricey one!

eBay Updates Their App

Posted by Jeff Campbell in "Apple Software (iPhone/iPod Touch)" @ 12:00 PM

"eBay Mobile, one of our favorite iPhone business apps, just got better. This tool for on-the-go buyers and sellers lets you bid on items, check prices, and answer customers' questions."

eBay is utilizing the "push" feature of the iPhone 3.0 in their latest update, so you will get notifications for when items you are bidding on are getting close to ending or when you have been outbid. They have also integrated PayPal payments for some items as well as searching through completed items and descriptions.

Warhol Mac Silkscreen to be Auctioned

Posted by Jeff Campbell in "Apple News" @ 08:00 AM

http://www.macworld.com/article/140...html?lsrc=mwnws

"Who doesn't love a great piece of Apple-themed art? Then again, once you've seen Adam Reeder's sculptures, is there anything that can top them? With all due respect to Mr. Reeder, perhaps a serigraph by Andy Warhol."

An interesting addition to any collection of Mac memorabilia, but you better have money to burn. They expect the piece, done by Andy Warhol about 24 years ago, to land in the $20,000.00 USD range at the May 6th Auction. It's roughly 3 feet by 3 feet in size, or 1 meter by 1 meter if you prefer. The auction will be held at O'Gallerie in Portland Oregon, and if this isn't to your liking, you can always peruse their auction catalog.
