Thanks to Apple there's a whole new generation of people who call themselves geeks these days. At AIL we remember what it was like to actually be a geek, marvelling at Amiga workbench 1.3 speech-synthesis, trying to install Linux before it was cool and wearing national health glasses with no irony.
Back then if you'd have told us that in 20 years time people will wear glasses without prescription lenses just to make themselves look geeky we'd have told you to lay off the Fizz Wiz.
Anyway, it doesn't matter if you're a Jobs or Wozniak kind of person (although Woz did actually do all the real work) these listings are for you.
