This is the March/April 1987 edition of the magazine nibble mac.
The Mac II and the SE have just been launched. ADB has been introduced to the world.
What I like about this magazine is that it gives a view of the computer world in 1987. It shows how both new and not new they were. The Digital Age at the household level had started. CDs were available, if expensive. Computers were becoming the hot new thing to have, for children to master, for companies to decide what to do with them. My father was an accountant at Texaco and they were already interested in Lotus 1-2-3 (alas not on Macs though).

The magazine was scanned at 300dpi on a Kyocera copier. Pages were straightened in Photoshop CS3 and taken out in 2478x3268 rectangles and saved as jpegs at 8/12 (on size grounds)
The jpegs were made into a PDF using Acrobat v9, given bookmarks and had OCR applied to it. I forgot to set it to v4 and I'll get around to that sometime.

I don't remember nibble mac, but then I had just started my Leaving Cert in 1987. If anyone does have fond memories of it, I'd be happy if they write about nibble here.

The PDF and the jpegs that comprise it have been saved in zip-files so that they could be uploaded.

The PDf is 115MB big. You'll probably need a machine from 2000 onwards to read it.
