This Mac was Signed by the Team that Developed it

Macintosh computers are the cutting edge.  They always have been. Macs are beautiful pieces of art. They have always been.  Early on, when Apple started making the Mac, Apple had the folks that were working on them sign a template which embossed their signatures into the cases of some  Macs.  Apple saw the Mac as a piece of art and wanted the signatures in the machines the way an artist signs his art. This template was made part of the casing in the Mac Plus and early Mac SE.  So there were a bunch of signatures that were embossed in the case.  And, yes both Steve Jobs and Steve Wozniak’s signatures were included there.  This is a great piece of Apple history.  Apple has continued to evolve and get better and better.  There were some rough years, lots of we Mac folks were worried, but when Steve Jobs returned there was a new enthusiasm.  Steve has a spark and his spark ignites a spark in the mind and heart of the Mac user community.

Steve Jobs is behind the design and guiding of many Apple products including the Mac.  Apple stock is one of the highest priced stocks out there.  I have been a Mac guy since I bought my MacPlus in the early 1980s.  Lots has changed since then, and it has gotten better and better.  I guess there have been lots of changes for computing in general.  Windows has made advances as well.  It seems that they (Apple and Microsoft) both steal ideas from one another.  But, Apple with its hardware and software control over the design of both has been the leader in innovation, with style and functionality.  And, with the new Intel Processors in the newer Macs and the ability to run Windows on them, Mac is the best and most versatile machine out there.

People always say that Macs cost too much.  Well you get what you pay for.  The Mac OS is made to run on the Mac hardware, it didn’t need to be adapted for it.  Windows will always have a place in all our lives, like it or not.  Today’s Macs are great machines to run Windows on.  You can run the Mac OS and the Windows OS side by side if you need to or want to.  Apple and the Mac will be a major part of the driving force in creating something new and making innovation for the future.  This said, “I’m a Mac” – please return here often to see my latest articles about Macintosh and Apple products.  I plan to do a review of Snow Leopard in the next few weeks.

Be well!

    Hi Irene!When you seal your wood canvas with Gesso you have to allow it to dry colmpetely. I usually do multiple ones that way they are ready to go when I’m ready to paint on them.I usually do at least 2 layers of Gesso on all sides including the back (3 layers is ideal) for longevity.Once the Gesso is dry, then you can sketch on on it.I sketch on Vellum or Tracing paper first so all the erasing and corrections are done on that and not on the wood. Once I’m happy with the drawing then I transfer it using another piece of Velum that I have rubbed colmpetely with a 4B pencil, you can purchase transfer paper, but I just make it my self.By transferring the drawing, you keep the Gesso clean and then begin to paint.If you do not want to deal with transferring, you can always add a layer of clear coat to the pencil sketch that is on the wood, let it dry and then start painting. The lead will be sealed and will not mix with your colors.I hope that helps.You’ve given me a nice idea for a blog post and I’ll be explaining it using pictures.Take careMaggie

    Jacob I have loved, Esau I have hated. (Genesis) before Esau was even born, God hated him because he was not one of God’s elect or chosen people.

    Pas de problème pour la point d’exclamation après le retournement. en revanche, avant, plutôt qu’une virgule, j’aurais mis un tiret demi-cadratin, ou le tout entre parenthèse. Je pense que la lecture aurait été plus aisée alors qu’ici elle n’a pas dû être naturelle pour tout le monde.

    Bin ja bei den Gewinnern gewesen und habe ich mich riesig gefreut. Kurzes Feedback: Habe Limuh an Freunde, Nachbarn und Arbeitskollegen verteilt und etwa 80% fanden das Produkt “Klasse”. Die Gummi´s kommen bei den Kindern zwar nicht so gut an, sind nicht süß genug, aber bei den Erwachsenen um so besser.Nochmals vielen vielen Dank für den super Gewinn.
