The iconic iMac G4. Designed by Jonathan Ive at Apple and released in 2002. Now 16 years later you’ll find this piece of modern history at the Museum of Modern Art. It still looks amazing. I’m really happy to say I picked one up today for my personal collection. #apple #imac #imacg4 #iconic #industrialdesign #applead #vintagecomputer

Jueves de #historia de internet: El Hipertexto 👀 — El texto basado en pantallas con enlaces integrados a otros textos ha revolucionado la forma en que encontramos y recuperamos la información. Sin embargo, hasta mediados del siglo XX, condicionado por 500 años de impresión, las narrativas no lineales eran inimaginables para la mayoría. #tbt más en www.elfolder.com

Larry Orsak immersed in the latest computer technology circa 1983! Dr. Orsak passed away last year in Papua New Guinea, where he was head of the Department of Forestry at the Papua New Guinea University of Technology. He was given a ceremonial funeral and burial in his adopted village of Baitabag.

This has to be my favorite DOS game. Played it a TON as a kid on a windows 3.1 machine. Back then I didn't own a manual just learned through trial and error and boredom. This game still shapes my preferences 25+ years later. I am proud to own it with the big box and manuals now. #SidMeier #colinization #bigboxpcgames #dosgaming #retrogaming #bigbox #pcgames #pcgamers #microprose #dos #windows3 #windows31 #windows311 #windows95 #windows #microsoft #strategygame #1492 #1991 #retrocomputer #retro #1990 #1990s #90skid #vintage #civilization #vintagecomputer #classic #nostalgia #america

Long time ago in a galaxy far far away... ZX SPECTRUM 48k was the first computer I had ever lay my hands and eyes on. Powered by audio cassetes, I had to wait for 5 mins through the noise in order to load a game. Oh if you only knew how much joy this little box broght to an 8 year old me. Little piece of nostalgia right here #zxspectrum #zxspectrum48k #vintagecomputer #longtimeago #computergeek

I got an empty box for my Commodore 64 a while back which still has a Service Merchandise sticker on it, which is neat. The sad part is, ever since I got my Commodore many year's ago it's never worked. The monitor and disk drive work great but there's something wrong with the board in the computer itself so it gets no picture. So shortly I'll be sending it out to get serviced. It'll be a really awesome day getting this up and running once and for all. I used the Twin Famicom Mario Bros disk version for the picture. #c64 #commodore64 #80s #64k #commodore #computer #vintagecomputer #supermariobros2 #mario #retrogaming #retrocollective #gameroom #twinfamicom #famicom #lukesvideogameroom

The Kenbak-1. The world's first personal computer. Reproduction kits were available for time, and now we want to help bring them back. DM us if you are interested! #vintagecomputer

Before:after. Looking much better! Sadly I’m still getting the dreaded “Simasimac”. I get a dead chime on boot and horizontal lines. There are quite a few possible fixes to this but it’s getting close to being beyond my skills 😢
