The Apple I is an 8-bit home computer, one of the first highly successful mass-produced microcomputer products, designed primarily by Steve Wozniak, manufactured by Apple Computer and introduced in 1977.

Gold Apple Watch

Andreessen Horowitz analyst Benedict Evans states that the $10,000-$17,000 Apple Watch exists because it's a form of marketing for Apple. It creates an air of luxury around the rest of the Apple Watch line, setting it apart from the others on the market. He says: "Apple retail is a self-funding marketing operation. So too, perhaps, is the gold watch. Apple might only sell a few tens of thousands, but what impression does it create around the $1,000 watch, or the $350 watch? After all, the luxury goods market is full of companies whose most visible products are extremely expensive, but whose revenue really comes from makeup, perfume and accessories."

12-inch MacBook Gold

Apple unveiled its all-new 12" MacBook today and it comes complete with a 2304 x 1440 resolution Retina Display that consumes 30 percent less power than previous displays. Another notable difference is a non-clickable touchpad, which boasts four force sensors, one in each corner. The actual "click feel" is now managed by software, enabling it to have pressure sensitivity, which leads to innovative uses such as pressing harder on the fast-forward in QuickTime to make a video play faster. Available April 10th, priced from $1299 (256GB SSD) - $1599 (512GB SSD + faster processor). Continue reading for another video and more pictures.

Apple Bookstore Romania

With physical bookstores in the states closing in droves, it'll only be a matter of time before Barnes & Noble shuts its doors for good. However, they're still going strong in Romania, or so we think after Carturesti Carusel (The Carousel of Light) opened in Bucharest, Romania. Previously, it was a XIX century structure that was completely transformed into a minimalist, Apple Store-style bookstore. In all, there are 6-floors filled with 10,000 books, 5,000 albums and even DVDs. You'll find a coffee shop on the top floor, a multimedia space in the basement and a modern art gallery dedicated on the first floor.

After arriving, simple attach external modules depending on what kind of power you may need - extra hard drives, a projector, etc. Continue reading for more pictures and information.
