Bytes from the Apple

And now a word from our sponsor …, you! Look elsewhere in this issue for an as yet untitled letters to the editor feature. We are now actively soliciting your letters and will reproduce in part some of the interesting ones. H you have a question or a problem, and we can’t find the answer in time to print it, we’ll throw it open to our readers for solution.

Money talks. Unfortunately, we have a number of words on that subject. As you will see in other stories, the prices on the Apple Box, software and dues are all to be increased. We don’t like to see this, particularly since one of our prime objectives is low cost software, but it is a necessary evil, if we want to adequately support Call -Apple, the cost of’which has grown to over $100 per month, not counting postage. Your understanding will be appreciated.

New software. Library Pak 2 should be ready for release as you read this. It contains many new color games and demos, music programs, a Greeting Pak which has a variety of Xmas and other greetings, a nifty game called “Nightmare No.6”, which in its opeing title states “The object of this game is to figure out the object of this game! ”  You take it from there. Also available now is “Disk Workshop”, a new version of Workshop II, designed to work with Disk II and adds two new commands:  DSAV saves an appended program to disk and CONNECT appends a Disk program to the Workshop. This is available at $6, postpaid, and if you have previously, ordered Workshop as a separate program,
we will send you this one for just $2.
