Snippet: Graveyard Orbit ☇

Shared on July 6, 2013

Thomas Brand made me feel just a bit guilty today—there’s a Mac SE, a Palm Vx, and an iBook G3 that need some attention:

We each have a Graveyard Orbit of our own. A place we put old tech to die. A closet, an attic, or an out of the way corner of the basement where retired Macs await their fate. Obsolesces, hardware failure, or the next big thing have forced them from our sides. Unable to part with our old companions, we power them down for the last time, and place them outside the reach of our lives; never to chime again.

Snippets are posts that share a linked item with a bit of commentary.
