Kevin SavetzThis month on Open Apple, Mike and Ken chat with Kevin Savetz, Internet publisher and author of the memoir Terrible Nerd. We cross enemy lines to review a book about the cultural, scientific, and philosophical implications of Commodore 64 programming, some of it applicable to the Apple II. Paul Terrell's Polaroid snapshots of the first Apple-1 computers are cool, just like our reception to Jordan Mechner's new Karateka game. On eBay, we discover the Androbot is not just another neat product from a Nolan Bushnell company, but another reason we prefer the Apple II to other platforms. And Ken's accidental purchase of some Microzines produces the concept for a new and very expensive podcast!
