Who would of thought it, Stephen Hackett writing a book about old Macs.
The Bondi iMac — and the family of colorful computers that came after it — brought some much-needed clarity and excitement to the Mac line.
More importantly, it bought Apple time to integrate NeXT’s technology and build Mac OS X from the ashes of the aging Mac OS.
This book looks at these parallel projects with a consideration of Apple’s best product: the company itself. – Aqua and Bondi
I’ve just purchased the book myself, and I’m looking forward to reading about the early stage of Apple, that really changed the company.
You can buy Aqua and Bondi on the iBooks Store, or alternatively as a PDF from the website.
Since the first seven Harry Potter books, and the 8 films, we’ve all been dying to sink our teeth into something Potter. Thankfully there’s another film on the way, but there’s also this play – “Harry Potter and the Cursed Child”.
The play will receive it’s world premiere in London’s West End on the 30th July, and the book, which is in fact a “Script Book” will be available digitally and physically in print the next day.
This release isn’t the final version, as the definitive version will be released later this year. However, this is the “Special Rehearsal Edition”, and will be whatever the play script it at the time of the play’s preview performances.
If you want to know more about the story, then here is a small description of what you can look forward to:
It was always difficult being Harry Potter and it isn’t much easier now that he is an overworked employee of the Ministry of Magic, a husband, and father of three school-age children.
While Harry grapples with a past that refuses to stay where it belongs, his youngest son Albus must struggle with the weight of a family legacy he never wanted. As past and present fuse ominously, both father and son learn the uncomfortable truth: sometimes darkness comes from unexpected places.
I’ve already preordered my copy, as I just can’t miss out on it. You can do the same via the iBook Store, or if you want it for another platform, or even in print, then check out Pottermore for more details.
