100 Apple Accessories on Instagram Concludes

Back in March 2020 I began my Instagram series, 100 Apple Accessories. The series featured 100 Apple accessories posted chronologically. Each post was an original photo with the name of the accessory, a minimal amount of clarifying information, the number in the series, a short description, and a link to more photos on my blog of the accessory. For example:

Macintosh Mouse (original, 1984). 100 Apple Accessories, Number 1 – The original Macintosh Mouse, Model M0100, shipped with the original Macintosh, Macintosh 128K, and Macintosh 512K. Like all early Macintosh mouse designs, it had only one button. mattjfuller.com/macintosh-mouse-original-beige-1984/

For the purposes of my posts, my definition of an “Apple Accessory” is a physical object made by Apple that is dependent upon another device to fulfill its purpose. For example, the original Macintosh Mouse (1984) is a classic Apple design that requires another device (a computer) to fulfill its purpose.

Some of the accessories I featured are somewhat obscure. For example you will find entries for a box of eMate Replacement Pens, a PC Card storage module for PowerBook 5300 series computers, a PowerBook Battery Case for 100-series PowerBooks, the Apple Lockable Cable Fastener that shipped with the G4 Cube, and my favorite, a small collection of OEM Apple USB Mouse balls in the original Bondi blue/white color scheme.

And yes, I own all of these accessories. I began documenting my Apple collection in photos back in 2018 and these are from my Apple Collection blog. While my blog contains several photos of each accessory in a single blog entry, my Instagram series featured just one representative photo of each selected accessory.

For this final post in the series, I wish to present an image of all 100 Apple Accessories in a high-resolution portrait. I offer this image under a Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-ShareAlike 4.0 International License.

You may also download the original image on Google Drive (24 x 24 inches at 200 dpi resolution, 3 MB). Feel free to print and display it if you wish!

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.

Apple keyboard extension cable (2008)

Shortly after Apple began including USB keyboards with tower computers, they have included a USB extension cable in the box in the event the user wished to place the tower under a desk or otherwise far way from the keyboard. The extender is APple’s way of dealing with their notoriously short keyboard cables. The User’s Guide for the 2008 Mac Pro pictures this keyboard extension cable design and states: “If the keyboard cable isn’t long enough, use the keyboard extension cable that came with your Mac Pro.”

Apple has also followed a convention of placing a notch in their USB keyboard extenders. This notch matches a slot in the USB plug present in all Apple keyboards, thus allowing an Apple USB keyboard to be plugged into any standard USB port, but preventing the Apple keyboard extension cable to be used with anything except Apple USB keyboards with the slot in the USB plug.
