Last night, the team attended the iFixit meetup at San Francisco’s TechShop. An old storefront repurposed as a community-based workshop and prototyping studio for techies and artists alike, TechShop was the perfect venue for iFixit’s Macworld mixer. After an exhilarating day on the trade show floor, the Henge Docks team got to geek out as iFixit employees demonstrated their techniques for repairing a phone while surrounded by computers of Apple’s past. The work station was strewn with a plethora of Apple history, including an Apple IIGS (1986), and PowerBooks 520c (1994) and 5300 (1996). Fellow Macworld exhibitors and attendees circled the table, examining all of the old technology, and sharing stories about their experiences with those and other Apple products of yore. It was a great end to the first day of Macworld!
