Rare?[edit]

Is it really that rare? I have one but it's just the drive and AC adapter. No remote, speakers or AV cable. It works with my Macintosh SE on SCSI ID 2 with some old FWB CD-ROM Toolkit drivers. It would be interesting to see who else has one and how rare they really are.--ThePenciler (talk) 07:47, 28 October 2009 (UTC)

They crop up for sale all the time on the second hand market, they can't have been that rare. But of course, on eBay, everything is "rare" :-) — Preceding unsigned comment added by 94.172.176.136 (talk) 12:37, 11 February 2013 (UTC)

Timeline[edit]

The line "With the success of the Apple Newton, in mid-1992 Apple Industrial Design Group created a division called Mac Like Things" strikes me as untrue. The very first model of Newton wasn't released until 1993. further, "success" is not the word I would use to describe that first model, or indeed the project. Jax184 (talk) 12:34, 14 May 2011 (UTC)

Considering that Apple manufactured the Newton another half-decade (it was discontinued in 1998), the word success might be appropriate after all. I understand the Newton got some bad early press ("egg freckles" anyone?), but that doesn't mean that the later models didn't improve and that sales were flat.

In fact, Apple briefly spun off the Newton as its own separate company (Newton, Inc.):

https://www.msu.edu/~luckie/newtinc.htm

in 1997; it lasted from July until September of that year. Unfortunately, with the return of The Steve, the company was spun back into Apple, then the Newton was killed off entirely. Not because the product line was a failure, but because it took away resources from Apple (which, at the time, was fighting for its life).

The point being: you don't keep a failing product going for a half-decade, then spin it off into a separate company the way Apple did with Newton, Inc. I understand why you said what you did, but, if you'll allow me to say so, the facts seem to tell a different story. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 75.18.181.2 (talk) 15:53, 25 November 2012 (UTC)


There's still the fact that the Newton didn't come out until 1993. So unless the first project of the "Mac Like Things" department was a time machine, I'm still going to have to say there's something wrong here. Jax184 (talk) 02:50, 7 June 2013 (UTC)

Blacklisted Links Found on the Main Page[edit]

Cyberbot II has detected that page contains external links that have either been globally or locally blacklisted. Links tend to be blacklisted because they have a history of being spammed, or are highly innappropriate for Wikipedia. This, however, doesn't necessarily mean it's spam, or not a good link. If the link is a good link, you may wish to request whitelisting by going to the request page for whitelisting. If you feel the link being caught by the blacklist is a false positive, or no longer needed on the blacklist, you may request the regex be removed or altered at the blacklist request page. If the link is blacklisted globally and you feel the above applies you may request to whitelist it using the before mentioned request page, or request it's removal, or alteration, at the request page on meta. When requesting whitelisting, be sure to supply the link to be whitelisted and wrap the link in nowiki tags. The whitelisting process can take its time so once a request has been filled out, you may set the invisible parameter on the tag to true. Please be aware that the bot will replace removed tags, and will remove misplaced tags regularly.

Below is a list of links that were found on the main page:

Note: Picture showing AppleDesign Powered Speakers shows them on the correct sides.[edit]

It seems odd to need to say this, but the original AppleDesign Powered Speakers have no "left" or "right" markings on them. Just wanted to put, for future reference for people who are searching, that the unit with most of the connections and the controls on the front is the *RIGHT* speaker. The 'plain' speaker that only has speaker-wire connections is the *LEFT* speaker. (Pictures online are about evenly split showing which speaker is on which side, so I figured having it definitely written somewhere would be good.) Ehurtley (talk) 01:29, 20 November 2014 (UTC)
