Seattle—Apple PugetSound Program Library Exchange (A.P.P.L.E.) released it’s second issue of Call-A.P.P.L.E. magazine since its return in March 2002. The latest issue of the magazine includes an exclusive interview with the father of the Macintosh, Jef Raskin. Jef speaks candidly in this interview about his days at Apple Computer, Inc. and his relationship with Steve Jobs during the years he was developing the Mac..
Also in this issue is a profile of the latest hardware available for the Apple IIe computer. Although many people are discarding the IIe in this day and age with internet ready machines, there are those who still use and develop software and hardware for these work horses. One such developer is Rich Dreher, a hobbyist and electrical engineer who this month introduced a long awaited Compact Flash card for the Apple IIe.
A.P.P.L.E. is an all volunteer user’s group which supports members in the Apple II , Macintosh and iMac communities. The members run the organization as well as support all aspects of the business.
