Macintosh 128K Review from Lazy Game Reviews

August 26, 2010 MGP 0

Of course, he’s right. The original Mac is fairly useless and even in its time was considered massively underpowered in terms of processor, meager floppy storage size, and especially RAM (until the Plus brought it to a whopping 1MB RAM). But it is an extremely valuable machine on the collector’s circuit. So much so that I don’t have one because they usually go for $1000+ apiece on eBay — that […]

Hey MGP! What’s Tasty These Days?

July 20, 2010 MGP 0

Not puppies. Besides, this isn’t about puppies. It’s about me and how I’m doing. But, how AM I doing? I’ve hardly had enough time to even ask myself that question. Let’s see… No doubt, many of you have noticed the onslaught of Monster Bash associated media over the last so many days. Not only will there be more (read: video clips on YouTube and future inclusions of interviews on respective […]

Mac OS 8 Tour Intro

June 22, 2010 MGP 0

Like an old friend almost forgotten, it was the first major jump in the operating system since System 7 some six years back. 1997 was the year and Mr. Jobs wasn’t even back yet (at least, not for this). It paved the way for Internet integration and pushed Mac users into the world of Power-PC chip usage. Oh, yeah, and Sherlock was in there somewhere, too. It’s nice to own […]

ARC Original Pricelist

May 2, 2010 MGP 0

A lot of people have been asking me if I did anything for this Walpurgisnacht weekend. I suppose I could have gone out-of-state to spend time with old friends, and while that was terribly tempting, I decided to stay here in Burlington. It’s the first weekend I’ve had since school started and, without the albatross of homework, papers, and finals around my neck, I wanted to just spend the time […]

M.I.T. Flea: April 2010

April 26, 2010 MGP 0

Before my pals and I got to the Boston area, we quickly stopped off at the two Apple Stores in New Hampshire (quickly, being the key word there, in case my NH friends are reading this) because we wanted to check out the iPad. Yeah, I get it. They look like a good time and I’ll get one when I feel it fits my needs. While at one of these […]

So, MGP! What’s Shakin’?

February 7, 2010 MGP 3

After a year and a half of being away from video production, I’ve decided to take up the reins once again. Part of my hiatus came with the changing out of one machine for another — namely, my old G4 mirrored-door for my Intel Mac. Seemed the version of Final Cut Pro I had didn’t want to play with an Intel processor or the too-futuristic video card inside. So, through […]

Congratulations! It’s A… Pad?

January 28, 2010 MGP 6

Although I’ll probably have a lot more to say about this device when it’s actually released (March or April, depending on whether or not you want 3G service with it), here are some initial thoughts, mixed with some response to the trendy knee-jerk style (and, admittedly, sometimes thoughtful) criticisms. Yes, it’s called an iPad. Go ahead and get all of your inner seventh – grader’s giggling and snickering out of […]

ARC Addition: 13″ MacBook 2.0 GHz

November 5, 2009 MGP 0

Yes, I know, it’s a year-old model and hardly “retro.” Well, one day it will be, so I’m just preparing for the future. I’m very forward-thinking, you know. Anyhoo, this is #28 in the Apple Retro Collection, for those keeping count. It’s the aluminum body model and not the plastic one that came in black or white. The video below goes into further details on the specs — LOTS of […]
