'Shrine of Apple' Aims to Photograph Every Apple Product Ever Made

by


Apple has built hundreds, if not thousands of different computers, peripherals, accessories and pieces of software since it was founded 35 years ago. Shrine of Apple aims to photograph every single one of those products.

The machine in the photo above, the PowerBook 165c, was the first PowerBook with a color screen and the first notebook in the world to have a 256-color screen. It cost $3,400 when it was released in February 1993.

Shrine of Apple promises not to use any stock photography, and instead wants to individually photograph each product. It's fairly limited in selection at the moment, but does have some oldies like the QuickTake 150, the Performa 200, and the Power Macintosh G3 All-In-One (the heaviest computer Apple ever released at 59.9 lbs).

The website promises to release more photographs every week. Visit the site at ShrineOfApple.com or follow them at @shrineofapple on Twitter .

Interesting never new there was such a thing as a Power Macintosh G3 All in one. I like this sight very interesting machines I never new where actually made.


I remember those—they looked like giant molars!

And look at the translucent top/back: they’re clearly a predecessor of the original iMac (and original iBook, G3 tower, etc.—all those curvy translucent machines)

But three other translucent products—all pre-iMac—come to mind too:

* The Apple eMate was a translucent aqua-colored laptop, a year before the first iMac.

* The original 15” Studio Display was dark blue/gray translucent, matching nothing else Apple ever made!

* The original beige PowerMac G3 tower had a “Bondi blue” translucent blob/latch on top.

Personally, I liked Apple’s transparent/minimalist phase better than the blobby translucent phase! But they had to start somewhere...

The web Page is either a badly protected web page which has been owned or is a extreamly well orchestrated attempt to get Apple users with there pants down.

Every link is infected.

:mad:


huh?

I find no evidence of any phishing links. Are you sure you went to the right web page?
