My big thrill when I visited the Smithsonian was the dizzying array of early calculators and computers. I should have allowed an entire day to devote to genuflecting before such sights as the enormous Eniac, Jerry Pournelle's very own Compupro 'Zeke II' , and (of course) the almost hippy-looking creation built in Jobs' garage, with its rough, hand-tooled, wooden cabinet. The "Apple" mark is routered into a vertical plaque on a case that (sadly) hides the board, but there it sits in its hermetic case, amidst other cybernetic brethren like the Altair 8800, Babbage devices, Radio Shack's TRS-80 and the Cipher Machines of WWII. We couldn't LIVE without our extended keyboards, flat screens and killer apps, but on a blackboard behind the Smithsonian's early Apple is the handwritten word "INCOMPARABLE", simulating some early PR showcasing the unit. It really *was* incomparable at the time. We might not be e-mailing one another screenshots illustrating our petty peeves without that humble machine. You can see a pic faithful to the one I took if you go to: http://americanhistory.si.edu/brc/4f4.htm It's identical right down to the funky angle brackets and drilled cable holes. This site is associated with the Smith so I first thought it was the same one that I saw, but there's a difference in the appearance of the device. Inexplicably, *this* Apple has some additional carving at the rear of the horizontal panel. If anyone's familiar with this machine, can anyone tell me what the additional inscription says?
