Released in 1993 at the retail price of $2,907 ($3,444 today), the Macintosh TV was Apple Computer's first attempt at computer-television integration. It shared the external appearance of the Macintosh LC 500 series, but in black. The Macintosh TV was essentially a Performa 520 that could switch its built-in 14" Sony Trinitron CRT from being a computer display to a cable-ready television. It was incapable of showing television in a desktop window, although it could capture still frames to PICT files. It came with a small credit card-sized remote control that was also compatible with Sony televisions. It was the first Macintosh to be made in black and came with a custom black keyboard and mouse. Only 10,000 were made in the model's short time on the market. Continue reading for more.

First unveiled in 1983, the Apple Bashful was a tablet computer far ahead of its time. This prototype, along with the others you're about to see, were all created by Frog Design Inc., which is a global design and innovation firm founded in 1969 by industrial designer Hartmut Esslinger in Mutlangen, Germany as "esslinger design". Their first designs for computer manufacturers were for proprietary systems by CTM (Computertechnik Muller) in 1970 and Diehl Data Systems in 1979. More prominent are the designs for Apple Computer, starting with the case of the portable Apple IIc, introducing the Snow White design language used by Apple during 1984-90, and continuing with several Macintosh models. The firm designed Sun's SPARCstations in 1989 and the NeXT Computer in 1987. Continue reading for more.

Fans of the Apple IIe personal computer will appreciate the retro touches ColorWare applied on its limited edition, individually numbered iPhone 6S Retro handset. Unfortunately, style comes at a price, with the 16GB model priced at a whopping $1,599. "The glossy, rainbow Apple logo, the matte vanilla-colored exterior and faux vents harken back to the 1980s. The contrast of the sleek 21st century technology coupled with the old school look is a thrilling contradiction. Order one today," said ColorWare.

China is known for their elaborate knockoffs, and one of them is this MacBook Air, which features a unibody design. If you're not able to tell the difference at first glance, everything changes when you switch it on, as it's actually running Windows 7 Ultimate, and not OS X.

Mail Online gives us a first look at what could possibly be Apple's upcoming smart ring, based on patents the company filed. This device has its own touchscreen interface, as well as motion sensors that monitor the wearer's hand movements, a microphone for Siri, and haptic feedback to alert a wearer of notifications. "A user's hands may be preoccupied with another task, for example, or the user's hands and/or arms may become fatigued after holding the device in a viewing position for extended periods of time. The light emitted by a touchscreen may be inappropriate in certain social environments or even dangerous if it gives away the position of a threatened use," said the patent.
