Lisa office system release 3.1 on leopard

| | Comments (0)
Thanks to LisaEM, the ROMless Lisa Emulator, I finally get a taste of Lisa on Leopard!

Frankly, the Lisa is so slow, (I have to MANUALLY insert the diskettes one by one, but I enjoy that moment, hear the sound from the slot...)and the LisaEM program is a little buggy, but it works and rocks!

于是,作为一名苹果超级粉丝,我可以自豪地说,除了APPLE I,每一代苹果的OS我都尝试过了⋯⋯

“质量上乘,款款经典” 鉴定完毕~~

今天还另有收获,找到Lisa时代的磁盘镜像若干:

为什么这么好的传统没有沿用到现在的产品上呢?

或许现在iPod的免费激光刻字留言服务源于此吧⋯⋯

尽管现在我们很难在苹果的产品上看到设计团队的签名,但显然乔布斯的这个idea仍然很好的成为了苹果艺术气质的体现~

每一台macintosh都是一件艺术品

Steve Jobs总是自诩为“艺术家”

因此在cupertino苹果总部有不少pablo picasso的画,而乔布斯也时常引用毕加索的名言:
"Good artists copy, great artists steal"

在macintosh上首次出现的GUI (Graphic User Interface),便是苹果的伟大艺术家们从xero那里“steal”来的。当然这个"steal"可比bill gates日后在windows中拙劣"copy"来得高明的多⋯⋯
(关于苹果微软两家的恩恩怨怨,当是后话,感兴趣的可以直接去看 Pirates of the Silicon Valley 来了解一二)

如你有幸能收集到macintosh那些早期型号(macintosh 68k, plus),不妨打开后盖,会有惊喜哦~

原来,macintosh的整个团队在steve的带领下,整个设计过程都精益求精,以艺术家追求完美的精神来完成产品每一个细节。伟大的艺术家在完成自己的作品后,通常会在上面签上自己的大名,将这件艺术品是为自己的延伸⋯⋯同样的,当macintosh的prototype定型后,steve要求设计团队的每个人都在机器的外壳内侧签上自己的名字,之后出厂的macintosh电脑外壳的磨具上都会依此在每一个成品上还原这些签名⋯⋯

我在flickr找到了一台Macintosh Plus的内部签名照
Macintosh Plus molded signature


仔细找找,你至少能看到steve jobs和woz的签名哦。

这些签名回根据mac的型号不同而不同,早期的macintosh大致的签名模版如下:

原来apple出过数码相机的

1994 apple QuickTake digital camera brochure cover

记得我在买我的Olympus E-410的时候,踌躇万分,因为作为一个百分百的苹果迷,发觉apple尽然在数码相机这个大众数码消费领域没有什么涉足,否则我坚决保持自己数码产品的队列,非苹果不买⋯⋯

今天在flickr上突然发现,原来apple出过所谓的Digital Camera,在1994年推出的第一款Apple QuickTake 100,三年之后的1997年,jobs回归,毅然决然地砍掉了这个不赚钱且吃力不讨好的产品线。于是历史上至今,属于apple的数码相机只有三款:QuickTake 100, QuickTake 150, QuickTake 200。现在苹果的support页上,仍然能找到关于这三款产品的用户手册

看着这个和宝丽来立拍得长得极像的数码相机,让我想到了“牛顿”Newton,以及现在风光无比的iPhone,Apple在不久的将来会有数码相机的reborn or reinvent吗?
