Part of our mission at Apple World Today is to keep alive the history of the Mac and other Apple products. After a recent post about a working PowerBook that was donated to our Vintage Apple project, I received an email from an reader -- Steve Neago -- who is looking for a piece of Mac history. Here's his message:
I am one of the first 20,000 Buyers of the 128K Macintosh, and during the mid to late 1980s a monthly magazine named MACazine was published here in the USA.
I later modified the 128K Mac to the 512K model and later a 512Ke, where I still own it and it works great with the vintage OS software but I am looking for a couple of older magazine articles published in MACazine when these Macintosh models were manufactured by Apple.
I own a few of the 85 - 87 MACazine issues, but where could I find MACazine full article indexes for years 1985 - 1987? I do not know which, if any MACazine issues had the articles indexes for these years from 1985 - 87. I have tried multiple searches about "MACazine" and "Article Index" on the Internet through Google and Startpage Search Engines, but I could not find ANY MACazine article indexes for any years it was published.
If I recall correctly, MACazine eventually transitioned into MacWeek - a weekly newspaper format about Mac News and years later stopped being published entirely with the advent of the Internet. I also do not know which publishing company currently owns the MACazine publication rights and/or has the files for these Macazine 1985-87 Article Indexes, nor whom I should contact.
Any suggestions where I could find or obtain these MACazine 85 - 87 article indexes or whom I should contact to find them is appreciated!
Regards, Steve Neago
