Apple kicked off the Mother’s Day celebrations early when it rolled out its latest Shot on iPhone ad earlier this week. And now you can create a personalized version by adding a photo of you and your mom to the clip.
Serious Apple prototype collectors usually know exactly what they are looking for as they try to build a physical timeline of each distinct device ever made. A Holy Grail artifact would be an Apple I. Fewer than 50 are said to exist.
Hap Plain wants the pieces none of us, including him, have ever seen.
He is one of a very select subculture who search the world over for Apple prototypes. Before being polished into the personal computing icons of our lives, Apple computers, iPods, iPhones and other devices start out as crude, unfinished test models so glitches and user experience hangups can be identified and worked out before hitting the market.
Thanks to the Illum, we may need to reconsider what the word “picture” means. Lytro’s game-changing camera takes “living images” that can be refocused and explored in 3-D, like some kind of precursor to a hologram.
As a light-field camera, the Illum does this by capturing the direction of every ray of light in an image, an advanced new imaging technology that’s being put to amazing use in creating virtual reality experiences. We’re thrilled to offer a Cult of Mac exclusive on the Lytro Illum for just $339.99 — that’s almost $1,000 off list price!
