Billions and Billions

In 1994, Apple Computer began developing the Power Macintosh 7100. They chose the internal code name “Carl Sagan”, the reference being that the mid-range PowerMac 7100 should make Apple “billions and billions”.

Miles Davis and Nintendo, Together at Last.

Kind of Duped – My parents wouldn’t let my brother and me get a Nintendo way back when. I’ve since blamed most of my disfunction’s and shortcomings on that one simple decision. While my brother and I did pool our money to buy a used one, we could only sneak in a level here and […]
