Just stumbled upon this: https://www.ebay.de/itm/223304386482 (MODS: NOT MY AUCTION!!!). Does anybody know what's on there?

EDIT: Here's a picture of the disc in question.

Not sure exactly what's on there, but I'd guess part of it at least is the cool screensaver demos they use on the Macs running in Apple Stores. If you or anyone here end up with one, please post the disk image somewhere!

Yeah, I remember them from the days I worked in a retail store. They're interactive applications with embedded movie clips.

There's a couple of in-store demo CD images for the iMac and PowerMacs on a certain well known Mac software site. Not seen the PowerBook one though.

Shipping would cost me 3 EUR so I started to bid on it, it's at 2 EUR.
Hopefully the price won't be rising to a ridiculous amount, if I do win the auction , I will create an image of the CD.

Finally I came to uploading it to MacintoshGarden, had some stressful weeks... See here please
Yes, it is a .cdr and has no hash sum checking, but that will follow - as soon as I have my AlBook around me again. TiBook and the two iBooks refuse to create a .dmg with check sum and end up with a weird error

I’ve wanted these for all of my Macs. Never seen even a disk image online.
Now there is!
