Macs continue to live on, long after they’re on the scrap heap –Â these vintage Apple logo earrings or pin are made by a woman whose family runs an electronic scrap business.
She plucked little plastic Apple logos (like the ones decorating the front of the 128K, though other Apple products had theÂ rainbow logo, too) from devices bound for the dump.
This isn’t the first time we’ve run across ways to adorn yourself with Macs — including silver power button cuff links or earrings or, similarly pricey rings and pendants from keyboards — the ones above go for a modest price of $13.99 (earrings) or $8.99 (pin).
What’s the verdict: geek chic or unwearable e-waste?
