Mike Maginnis and I were driving through Ohio recently when we pulled off the highway in Berlin Heights. Courtesy some online preparation, I knew of a nearby apple orchard I wanted to stop at. Apples are not only my favorite computers, but also my favorite fruit — a consequence of sharing Johnny Appleseed’s hometown, I suppose. I hadn’t yet gone picking in this nascent fall season and was eager to get my hands on some Paula Reds.

While I was focused on the fruit, Mike had a different kind of apple in mind. Remembering that we were transporting from Colorado to Massachusetts a childhood computer of one of my college friends, he suggested I pull it out of the trunk and pose for a photo.

Apple presents apple

The Apple II and its namesake, reunited at last!

Apple presents apple. Imagine if we could pick these off trees so easily!
