Ida Skivenes’ Art Toast Project Features Famous Works of Art on Toast

Classic Macintosh Pen Holder: The Mac is Mightier than the Pen
It’s been nearly 30 years since the original Macintosh hit the scene, so that definitely makes me feel old. But despite being ancient technology, I still love the little computer that smiled at you when you powered it on, and frowned when it crashed.
