II Computing now Available Online


Apple II Scans (http://www.apple2scans.net), the archival site run by Apple II aficionado Mike Maginnis, has once again provided the Apple II community with a long lost piece of computing history.  II Computing magazine which appeared in 1985 with an issue bearing the Halley’s Comet, disappeared almost as fast as the comet did.

With only 9 issues published over a 1.5 year period, the magazine is significant because it was published by the Atari centric publishing company, Antic.  The final issue published was for February / March 1987.

Long time Atari archivist, Kevin Savetz and host of the Atari Pod Cast (http://ataripodcast.libsyn.com/) provided the entire collection to Apple II Scans.

The scans of the magazine provided by Apple II Scans (http://www.apple2scans.net) are not just scans but also have all of the articles bookmarked in the bookmark tab, as well as being fully OCR searchable.  For more information or to download the scans, check out the Apple II Scans website page for II Computing at:
