I had one of these:

Then I lost it and bought another one of the same model.

That one was confiscated by a teacher when I was a sophomore in high school.

Then I bought one of these:

That one was stolen from my backpack when I was at lunch at school.

Then the week that I graduated I was called to the office and given my confiscated Walkman back.

The MacCharlie was a hardware add-on for the Apple Macintosh that was made by Dayna Communications. The name refers to an IBM PC advertising campaign of the time featuring Charlie Chaplin’s “Little Tramp” character.

It allowed users to run DOS software for the IBM PC by clipping on a unit to the chassis of the 128K Macintosh, as well as a keyboard extender to provide the function keys and numeric keypad that were absent from Apple’s original keyboard.

The clip-on unit sat to the side of the Mac and, like the contemporary Amiga Sidecar, contained essentially a complete IBM PC compatible with an 8088 processor, 256K RAM (expandable to 640k) and a single 5.25" floppy drive that stored 360K. A second floppy drive could be added.

While running DOS software, users could still access the Macintosh menu bar and desk accessories. MacCharlie used the Mac as a terminal, performing all DOS processing itself, and sending video data over a relatively slow serial link to the Mac for display. This slowness, coupled with the declining prices of real IBM PC compatibles, contributed to the short market life of the MacCharlie.

couldn't find that one, I googled "led fireplace", from what I saw, you'd be better off buying a cheap tv, and finding a 4k fireplace video on youtube

Pretty sure that's a 6[2|3]xx series Performa/PowerMac.

Pretty sure my 7300 (same design as the 7600) had the CD tray on the right, and the IR port was more of a Performa thing. (For the AV/tuner card.)

Transformer explodes at ConEd substation in Queens:

Image

Apparently there was a set of thumps from explosions, followed by a flicker in lights as backup systems rebalanced the power load. People in the area could also see that eerie fluorescent blue glow from the fire.

No suspicious activity was associated with the explosion.
Still, Deputy Inspector Osvaldo Nunez, the commanding officer of the 114th Precinct, conceded that the episode "was spectacular." "You could see it from the precinct, and the precinct is about a half-mile away," he said. "You felt it in your chest, the explosions, and the night sky turned an electric blue."
