Your Computer was Australian publication that covered news and articles related to popular home computers in the market at the time (late 80s).  Apple II, IIGS, Commodore/Amiga and IBM compatibles are covered. Scans of this magazine are relevant to modern interest.  A quick scroll through the PDF files shows news about upcoming products and the time frame around them.  An example is the evolution of home printing, as we have come from the 40-column Daisy Wheel type to affordable laser printing at 1200dpi.

Your Computer is loaded with advertisements for Australian local businesses and dealers.  This allows for easy comparison of prices and value to modern products.  I combine the date of the magazine and price listed with the RBA’s Inflation Calculator to compare.  The entry-level Epson LX-86 is listed for $495 and would cost $1,261.95AUD in 2016!

Other international magazines have also been added, and by my understanding are presented to the internet some for the first time. Titles include:

  • Commodore Computing International
  • Commodore Magazine
  • RUN
  • Your Commodore
  • Compute!’s Gazette

Enjoy the huge range of advertisements, news articles in high quality PDF files as freely shared above.  Scanning is just one of the steps to bring these publications back to life and I offer a link here to donate and pay for my equipment outlay: https://www.paypal.com/cgi-bin/webscr?cmd=_s-xclick&hosted_button_id=SEP3P27VK58SN

 

Reader Alan emailed me regarding missing pages from two editions.  I have re-scanned and uploaded. Thank you. 29 September 2017.

Applecations – The Publication of the Apple Users Group – Sydney Australia as scanned by Jeremy Barr-Hyde

screen-shot-2016-12-10-at-11-56-54-am

Presented here is a link to my ‘Scanned Magazines’ folder as shared on Google Drive where you’ll find my archive of 93 Applecations magazines.

https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/0BweO6Y13Cmc4TF9hNHVUN0I2NmM?usp=sharing

The aim of this blog post is to give a page for reference online.

Applecations is publication by the Apple User’s Group of Sydney, Australia and features advertisements, member articles and content from around the world related to the Apple II computer and later incorporating the Macintosh.

These magazines are a true wealth of discussion and news with an Australian perspective on the industry and user scene.  Member’s Handbooks are included which have an Index for each year too.

I’d like to give credit to those names behind Applecations which include:

From July 1983
PRESIDENT - Bruce Kehlet
VICE PRES - Michael McGunness
Secretary - Colin Rutherford
Treasuer - Peter Kazacos
Committee - Ron Lombardo

From August 1986
EXECUTIVE- PRESIDENT - Ron Lombardo
VICEPRES - Don Riley
SECRETARY - Bob Cornwall
TREASURER - Peter Kazacos
EDITOR -Hans Hoffman 
COMMITTEE- Membership Recorder - Graham Clarke 
Mac meeting Convenor -Ed Ashworth
Asst. Mac S.I.G - Marius Coomans
SALES - Library & Bulk Purchase - Chris Wanigesekera
Bulletin Board SYSOPs - Andrew Riley, Matthew Barnes 
Asst. Librarians - Michael Funayama (Mac), Bob Bradshaw (//)
Special Activities - John Rotenstein, Bruce Stanley, Ed Mehrte

From May 1989
Editor: Hans Offman
Contributing Editor: Tony Szabo
Distribution: Graham Clarke
Advertising: John Paske

Each magazine was made suitable for scanning by sharply removing the spine and scanned with a Fujitsu ScanSnap iX500 scanner.  Lengthy experimentation was done to establish a workflow that delivers sharp, truly black text and minimal page bleed-through.  If you notice a skew to the text it is in the original.

Posts relating to Australian Macworld magazine as hosted by Archive.org have been scanned by myself and placed online to reflect the Apple Macintosh industry in Australia at the time of publication.  I took on this scanning project as I could not find a single entry online of Australian computer magazines related to Apple.  Please enjoy the high quality scans including advertisements which can be best bit!

You are welcome to contact me if you would like the original file as I can see Archive.org has applied some unwanted processing to the PDF.
