Apple II History: The story of “the most personal computer”!

Apple IIGS France (FRA): Ce site a pour but de vous présenter le dernier représentant de la grande famille Apple II : l'Apple IIgs. Cet ordinateur, produit de 1986 à 1992, n'a malheureusement pas rencontré un très grand succès en France pour des raisons aussi bien commerciales que techniques. Ceci n'a pas empêché des développeurs français de réaliser un travail formidable sur cette machine. C'est principalement pour leur rendre hommage que ce site a été céé. Alors bonne visite dans cette découverte ou redécouverte de l'Apple IIGS.

Apple2Online.com: Our aim is simple: to provide a single-source, easy-to-use library of reference materials - software, manuals, FAQs, photos, links, etc. - for the Apple II family of computers in order to both preserve the Apple II's rich history as well as to provide a readily-accessible resource for those who are interested in learning about the Apple II for the first time. We are strictly Apple II - no Macintosh, no Commodore - just Apple II!

NetDisk: NetDisk is an Apple IIGS utility that allows you to mount disks images hosted on an HTTP server (a public web server or one on your local network). The mounted disk images behave as if they were normal (but read-only) disks on your IIGS: you can open files and run programs directly off of them, or copy the files to your local disks using the Finder or other standard utilities. The NetDisk package also comes with the Archive.org Disk Browser, a Finder extension that lets you conveniently search for disk images on the Internet Archive (archive.org) and mount them using NetDisk.

SmartportVHD: This project is providing a mass storage to the Apple //c (except the ROM 255 version), the only Apple II without expansions slots. The external floppy connector of Apple II, aka smartport, is exploited to its best to reach this goal. The resulting device allows the Apple II to view the content of an usb device as one or more hard disk.

As a big N64 fan, a few years ago I wanted some way to try out my homebrew on a real console, play translations, and just to mess around in general – but from looking at all the other solutions on the market there appeared to be tons of room for improvement and I started to make my own. After a lot of work and several years of iteration since then, what you see is the result. It's an extremely high quality product used by hobbyist and professional developers alike.

Olivetti M10 (ITA): L'anno dopo la presentazione dell'M20, avendo intravisto nel settore dei portatili un mercato potenzialmente solido ed in espansione, la OLIVETTI chiese alla KYOCERA (Kyoto Ceramic Co., Ltd.) una versione del suo Kyotronic KC-85, così come avevano fatto NEC per il PC-8201A e TANDY per il TRS-80 Model 100. Mettendo insieme questa base tecnologica e il design di Perry A. King e Antonio Macchi Cassia, nacque l'OLIVETTI M10, che rimase in produzione per due anni.

It was developed in the years 1962-1964, and launched in the States in october 1965, with the first units being shipped a few months later. It had a very large success, due to its relatively modest price ($3.200) and in a few years about 35.000-40.000 pieces were sold. It went on being sold for a few and was still in large use at the beginning of the '70s, when it offered a viable alternative to larger computers.
