The Catalog
Our new catalog should be sent to you around the first of this year. It will contain our latest products for the Apple II, Macintosh, Amigo and MSDOS compatible computers. We also want to remind you of the questionnaire that will be included with the catalog. The purpose of the questionnaire is to determine whether or not we should publish a catalog of products for all the computer systems we support or should we publish separate catalogs for these systems. Please, take the time to fill it out and send it back to us.This kind of feed back will help us determine how we might better serve you.

On-Line Catalog
If the new A.P.P.L.E. Co-op catalog has not yet arrived, do not be discouraged. You can now purchase the latest Co-op Apple II products via our new on-line catalog service on GEnie. The catalog is listed in the American Apple Round Table bulletin board category.

Discount Coupon
The expiration date of the 5% discount coupon, that was on the dust cover of the November issue, has been extended to February 15, 1987. Remember, this coupon is worth 5% off the purchase price of any regularly priced products included in the catalog. This coupon does not include specials. The order must be a mail order and the coupon must accompany the order.

Goodies from APDA
The first beta version of the Apple IIGS development system is now available. It is called Apple IIGS Programmer’s Workshop (APW). Included is a command shell, full-screen text editor, linker, utilities, 65816 assembler, plus macro interfaces to the Apple IIGS Toolkit. Also available is the Apple IIGS Toolbox Reference, Vol 1 & 2. For those of us with Macintoshes, there is Macpassport v.l.a a1. This is a generic “shell” for doing file conversions. MacPassport allows you to read/write ProDOS 3.5 disks on your Mac.
