Finally got around framing this cool Apple IIe poster. “A peeled Apple IIe”. It seems to be from Australia, so far i could find the “Kurrawood Computers” was located in NSW, Australia. It’s not in perfect condition, but when placed under the glass it does look good.
It’s good addition to my mancave/work-room wall.

Apple ][ forever.
I found one nice Apple (internal?) newsletter from early 1982, in German, called “APPLE IN EUROPA”. It was usual sales/product/business info but also nice pieces of history for details-buffs like myself.
I found out for example the exat time/dates when they showed the Apple /// for the first time in Finland at the ELCOM ’81 exhibition/trade show, Helsinki, 2-6- November 1981.
As well DESIGN ’81 in Helsinki, 2-6 August 1981, had an FinApple’s presense and assume Apple ][ was the main item.
Also KONTTORITEKNIIKAN NÄYTTELY ’81 in Turku, 23-26 September 1981. I’ve been in some of these in Helsinki maybe in 1986-1988 time range or so. These were about all things releated to office work, papers, pens, desks, computers – all you can think of.
IF somebody have more of these, please contact me, share there, or contact me for scanning them. These are extermely interesting pieces of history and detail!
I am not sure if i’ve seen this Sales Promotion Price List scanned up.

Apple ][ forever.
These Vintage Apple-signs or trade show props, were donated to my by a friend and colleague. He used to work to repair Apple and Macintosh computers back in 1980 and 1990’s. He must have saved these and totally forgotten these for all these years. They came across his basement storage recently and he of cos, knew my interested in the “old apples”, offered them to me right away. There were supposed to be just one, but to his suprisement, there were two of them. One being more rough, the sticker corners are peeling off due old age, but the other one is in much better shape. Needs just some cleaning. The better one will make nice props to my work/hobby room.
Cleaning was needed or at least trying …
So basicly i tried just basic every household cleaning methods. Tolu-foam which really didn’t do much but maybe polish the plastic a bit – the darker dirt came off however perfectly with Label-Off spray. The plastic itself was partly yellowed (I know! this sounds like a job for Mr. Retr0bright..). But i don’t think it’s much of a worth the effort to go that extreme on this case. If you want these, you can easily make your own copies.
So i was quite ok with them cleaned up, glued together the logo a bit and we’re good to go.
I placed them to my work/hobby room against the wall. But. I had an idea. I need to find where i can cut another of them to perfect square around the logo itself, it would make great framed decoration to the wall..
Got an very nice gift from a colleque, the legendary Apple-man himself, Markku Jussila.
It’s an never used, 1980’s Apple coffee cup with “The Most Personal Computer” on the another side and the rainbow-color logo on the another side.
This surely won’t be used for drinking coffee…
The high price-point for the Apple //c then of cos lead to this.
Mustapörssi was electronics retailer of the 1980’s and was very aggressive with their pricing and commericals. I’ve wondered what was the “complete gaming software bundle” package they offered?
If somebody knows about what it containted, please contact me.
Laser Shop sold Apple ][‘s as well, in this case, the Apple //c which got LOTS of ad’s in Microcomputer magazines trying getting back to the market. But.. Apple //c was quite expensive if you compare to the other 8-bits, like Commodore 64 or Spectrum whose ruled over the market before Amiga and then later Windows units.
“Computer Phobia Program!” (and nice Apple //e with Duodisk).
Wonder where this picture was taken to the publication? They write about the computer phobia adults have against computers and children who do not..
Found also an nice list of Apple II games/software sold by “Computer Game Station” in Helsinki. This was just an listing for some hot items, they had more of other titles as well.
And the games.
I do collect (&preserve) original software for Apple ][ – so IF you happen to have any of these, please do contact me.
Nice ad for Applied Engineering “Z-RAM II” for Apple //c from Finnish microcomputer magazine “PRINTTI” which were just finally, scanned to PDF and can be found online.
Wonder how many of these actually were bought? I’ve never seen any so far.
I managed recently found an Z-RAM II board! It was installed in German Apple //c (yet to be received).
