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:

Welcome to Apple Developer Connection Select Membership.

This orientation package includes the resources you need to get started-all in a convenient case that can be used to store the Mac OS X releases and monthly Developer DVDs you’ll receive as part of your once-a-year membership.

Apple blank DVD media (2001)

In the early 2000s when Apple began offering a re-writable CD/DVD drive as an option, they included your first blank DVD-R disc along with your Mac purchase. Apple took the opportunity to fully brand the disc with printed packaging and a custom-printed DVD-R.

I have two unused examples of this official Apple blank media, one with a grape (purple) logo “Certified for use with Power Mac G4 DVD-R drives” (part number 603-047-A, unopened in shrink wrap) and another with a blueberry (bright blue) logo “Certified for use with Apple DVD-R drives” (part number 600-8671).
