one to one personal training Apple Store brochure (2007)

This brochure described the Apple Store’s “one to one” personal training services in 2007. The brochure reads:

“There’s no better way to learn more, or learn it faster, than with one-to-one personal training sessions at the Apple Store. Our trainers—experts in all things Apple—create a program customized to your level of experience. You can choose individual sessions covering everything from getting started on a Mac to making more out of your memories. Or explore any topic you like. Personal training sessions are designed to move at your pace and provide the support end guidance you need, whether you are new to Mac or ready to master the latest pro software.”

The lessons included: Getting Started on your Mac, Mac 101, Digital Photography, Moviemaking, Podcasting, Building Your Website, and Present and Publish.

This brochure is stapled and measures 4.25 x 6.5. All spreads are 2 pages, except the last fold-out, 3-page spread.

T-shirt, Hello, I’m a Mac. (blue, white logo, c. 2007)

This t-shirt is royal blue and features the words, “Hello, I’m a Mac.” front and center.

The t-shirt is a reference to an Apple ad campaign that ran from 2006–2009 titled “Get a Mac.” Television commercials and print ads featured two actors, Justin Long as “Mac” and comedian John Hodgman as “PC,” against an all-white background. Wikipedia describes the ads:

“The two…act out a brief vignette, in which the capabilities and attributes of Mac and PC are compared, with PC—characterized as formal and somewhat polite, though uninteresting and overly concerned with work—often being frustrated by the more laid-back Mac’s abilities. The earlier commercials in the campaign involved a general comparison of the two computers, whereas the later ones mainly concerned Windows Vista and Windows 7.”

Each ad uses the same soundtrack, “Having Trouble Sneezing,” by Mark Mothersbaugh. About 80 ads were produced for TV and the web.

The t-shirt tag indicates it is a Hanes Beefy-T brand made from 100% cotton in size 3XL. It was made in El Salvador. The back of the t-shirt features a white Apple logo at the top-center.

I purchased this shirt from the Apple Company Store at 1 Infinite Loop (Cupertino, CA) in approximately 2007.

Shirt, Apple Distinguished Educator (short-sleeve pique, dark gray, c. 2007)

This short-sleeve, pique shirt is branded as PORT|AUTHORITY SIGNATURE. It is a dark gray pique knit and features a white embroidered Apple logo and the words Distinguished Educator in the upper-left. The back of the shirt includes a white embroidered Apple logo at the top-center.

The tag indicates the shirt was made in Egypt. It is size 2XL.

I was honored to receive this shirt as part of the Apple Distinguished Educator program (Class of 2007).

Apple Developer Connection Select Membership box and DVDs (2007)

The Apple Developer Connection Select Membership box was sent to new members of the Apple Developer program that served as a “welcome kit” to the ADC program. Based on its contents, this membership box was sent in February 2007 (the DVD design features a large 02/07 in red-orange Apple Myriad font). After the box was sent, new content could be downloaded from the Apple Developer website and no new physical media (CDs/DVDs) was necessary.

This Apple Developer Connection box contains a welcome letter, a set of DVD-ROMs (Developer DVD Series—February 2007), and the then-current Mac OS X Leopard Developer Preview DVD.

The welcome letter reads:

Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard box (2007)

This is the retail box for Mac OS X Leopard, Version 10.5. Although the OS features the codename “Leopard,” Apple instead chose to use a metallic print idea highlighting a space theme (echoing a new space-themed wallpaper included with the release) for the artwork.

The box highlights five new features of apps and services in the OS:

  • Finder—See your files in Cover Flow.
  • Spaces—Organize your windows.
  • Time Machine—Automatic backup.
  • Mail—Stylish email stationery.
  • iChat—Add effects to video chat.

Apple described this update as “the largest update of Mac OS X” with over 300 new features. Leopard was also the first Mac OS X version to drop support for the Classic Environment that allowed users to run Mac OS 9 “Classic” apps within Mac OS X.

Apple Gift Cards (2005, 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2012, 2014)

This collection of Apple gift cards spans the years 2005–2014, and includes gift cards for use in Apple Stores, the iTunes Store, and Starbucks. Apple Store gift cards can be redeemed in brick-and-mortar or online Apple Stores for purchases. iTunes Store gift cards can only be used at the iTunes Store for digital music, video, app, or downloaded purchases.

The special Starbucks card in this collection was sold as a standard Starbucks gift card, but it also allowed two free song downloads in the iTunes Store. When I learned about this offer in 2007, I purchased 25 of these cards at $5 each (the minimum amount allowed for this promotion) and received 50 free song downloads on iTunes (and $125 in Starbucks purchases).

All of these cards have been redeemed.
