There are still other adapters that they are selling, that is just the most expensive apple made one on their site. They are also making expensive USB C adapters. :x

Truly amazing apple innovation.

Have you seen stuff like this? : http://store.apple.com/us/product/MB571 ... r?fnode=51

I mean 100$ for an adapter that costs less than 10$ to make? That barely works? Come on apple, this is bad even for you.

Has anyone ever seen the knife history on the market and seen some knives worth 400$ that sold for like 50cents when they were at the highest price? Like the huge downwards spike on the graph? I would hate to be one of those people.

I was thrilled the first time I saw a USB flash drive in 2005. Finally there was a replacement for the damn floppy, decades after it should have died. It was pathetic trying to split files over multiple floppies in the 21st century. (writable CD-ROM was a pain in the ass too) When I first saw an Ap...

Motorised eject under software control — that hole is just for emergencies. The disc hadn't quite actuated the insertion detection microswitch, so System Software wasn't seeing it; the disc hadn't mounted and therefore couldn't be ejected. I don't recall why I couldn't use cmd+shift+1 (FKEY 1: forc...

what are the differences to a normal XT? Good pics! I believe this keyboard has been TEMPEST outfitted. Meaning it is made not to emit electronic signals that could compromise the security of a terminal. Hope this helped :) I am still trying to figure out the rest of the differences, like if the ca...

Pretty cool that you have the actual PC that is was made for. I wonder if this EMR keyboard will work with an xwhatsit converter?

Still don't know the switch type however. G81 = Cherry MY. Terrible, terrible switch. Luckily the keycaps are fully MX compatible. Yeah I hear they are like typing on wet newspaper.
