Apple.com, circa 1983.

A little project of mine: imagine Apple.com in 1983. The Apple Lisa is new, the Mac is still a year away. It's imaginary, of course, considering the iPhone and Apple even hinting at the Macintosh publicly. Still...fun to imagine.

    Nice!
  • Justin Mcghee 6y

    I do agree, the beige is the icing on the cake.
  • Luca Silenzi 6y

    Great job! The menubar rocks :)
  • applecommercials 6y

    I decided to make this into an actual website. apple.apple-commercials.co.cc most links wont work but i hope to soon get it completely running.

    @davelawrence8> if you want to make more pages like the store i'd be happy to put them up.

    @applecommercials - that's hilarious. Thanks!
  • Anna Kardaleva 6y

    of course the site won't look like that. I wonder what apple.com looked like in 1983.
  • Justin Mcghee 6y

    Was there an apple.com in 83'?

    JaM賈斯汀:
    Apple registered the domain in 1987 and the first web browser (Mosaic) was released in 1993 and when I joined Apple in 1994 they had a website which I later worked on as a webmaster in 1998.

    Great Work....
  • Andreas Kuhn 5y

    great work (& fun)!
  • ktxed 5y

    It would have probably taken the mac 5 hours to download the page and 2 hours for the browser to render it :))

    Oh well, now even Flickr comments are spammed. :(
  • Patrick Hoesly 5y

    Fantastically Funny! You nailed it.

    I love that diskettes get their own tab - 3.5" floppies were like *gold* back then. Supply was so far behind demand that we'd scavenge spare MacWrite discs for data storage.
  • chrystani 5y

    Ahahaha! Love the upcoming IPhone. :) Cute.

    So awesome. Though, I have to say that Lisa model didn't appear till late 1984, since the 83 Lisa had the two Twiggy drives. But its pretty cool, I couldn't stop laughing when I saw this image.
