Apples-Lisa-Operating-System-Is-Coming-to-Your-Computer

While many were celebrating the pending arrival of Santa Clause the following day, Al Kossow dropped some pretty heavy news that Apple’s Lisa operating system from the early ’80s had been converted for modern technology and would be released through the Computer History Museum in 2018 after the code was approved by Apple. The Apple Lisa, originally released in January of 1983, was one of the first computers to ever have a GUI (graphical user interface), but we’ll forgive you if you’re not familiar, because the thing cost almost $10k at the time and was notoriously unreliable. Kossow, one of the curators for the Computer History Museum, managed to convert a copy of the legendary OS with everything from the original except the American Heritage Dictionary for the spell checker in LisaWrite. Seeing as how most of us weren’t around when Lisa was originally released, the novelty of being able to play around with it using modern technology is reason even to acquire a copy once it drops.

 You can’t have a fall evening without a fire. And you can’t have a fire without a Cowboy Cauldron. They’re built from solid plate steel, meaning they’ll last a lifetime or two and they come in four different sizes with elevated basins that can be adjusted to any height. We’re going with The Urbaan Cowboy® because it’s perfect for entertaining at home.  With a 30″ diameter basin, it is more than large enough to have a nice fire, but still small enough to pack into a pickup truck and take it with you.  Can you imagine the envy when we bust this puppy out at a tailgate or the beach? We haven’t seen a more handsome fire. You?  Best of all, Cool Material readers get an exclusive deal.
