Let me say this is just too long overdue! Microsoft’s new “Fix it” button. [Oh that we had one of these for life!]fixit

My MAC doesn’t have a “Fix it” button. HA! It doesn’t need one!!!

Apple fans mark 25 years of Mac devotion

Long before fish swam in Macquariums, hipsters got Apple logo tattoos and thousands camped out for days to get into computer store openings, there was a machine.

Danielle Brecker found this 1989 photo of friends on their Macs at Drexel University in Philadelphia.
