“I totally forgot that Rihanna was used as the track for an i Pad 2 guided tour.What a weird year.” Sam Henri Gold was giving me a progress update on what would eventually become The Apple Archive. Compiled from hundreds of videos and images spanning Apple’s near 44-year history, the collection is believed to be one of the largest of its kind ever made available. Like Sam, I had no recollection of Rihanna’s introduction to the i Tunes Store app on i Pad 2.I wasn’t aware of the Apple Store demo loops for the Power Mac G4, either.But I am fond of the “Solar” spot that launched the first aluminum i Macs and helped spark my lifelong interest in Apple.And I could never forget the “Next Level Fun” ad for the third-generation i Pod touch that I watched frame by frame and attempted to recreate in my basement as a teen with more time than resources. Sam hopes the collection he’s compiled will inspire the next generation of designers, developers, and Apple fans by preserving the company’s legacy of creativity.If you're planning on running the treasures of the past you'll find here on real old Macintosh hardware from the 90's, you sir/madame, deserve to win an Internet!For others, there's Sheep Shaver, a Power PC emulator capable of running Mac OS 9.0.4 down to Mac OS 7.5.2 and there's Basilisk II, a 68k emulator, capable of running Mac OS (8.1 to 7.0).For everything older than System 7, you will need a Mac Plus emulator like Mini v Mac NEW!Since August 2016, it is now possible to emulate a PPC and boot Mac OS 9.2.2 using QEMU!Quick tip about Basilisk II if you do not have a real old Mac: it even reads high density Mac floppy disks using a normal PC floppy drive!
