Charlie Harrington, writing about looking for an Apple IIe:
I set a few auctions to my watch-list, and then laced on my sneakers for our morning run. Not one block away from our house did I spot something: a yellowed plastic box amid a pile of trash. No. It couldn’t be. I stopped, and went back to the trash.
It was an Apple IIe. With its CRT monitor. And a dual floppy drive.
Just. SITTING. THERE.
