Well the Missus and I trundled down to the Boylston Street Apple store to dump some old computers last night and, say, it was swell.
Largely because we dropped off a Mac SE that we bought in 1989 for – get this – $3000, which was real money at the time.
(Then again, it changed our freelance writing life and saved us a fortune in Liquid Paper.)
The whole store was abuzz at the appearance of our relic, with multiple Apple Geeks stopping by to say “Can I have it?”
Of course the Missus said yes. But the Manager said no.
So it goes.
