Apple ads from 1975 – 2002 Posted on Friday, October 19th, 2012 at 11:36 am. PT Written by Jim Dalrymple Some great stuff here. pawhite524 Agreed, great stuff. I was hoping to see the famous newspaper ad, full page as i recall, where Apple welcomed IBM (!) as a new competitor selling personal computers. I can’t remember the precise date but recall it being the early 1980s… Anyways, thanks for the article link! http://www.theuniversalsteve.com SSteve Raise your hand if you had a computer that used cassette storage. I did, but it was a Commodore PET. I couldn’t afford an Apple ][. Also, that top "Introducing the Apple ][" ad was certainly in the dark ages of workstation ergonomics. http://www.timdehring.com Tim Dehring “Sends other UNIX boxes to /dev/null.” Ah, I wish Apple would do more ads like that.
