There’s no denying the late Steve Jobs was an insanely competent businessman and led Apple to the heights of profitability and popularity that it’s experiencing today. I always think of Steve Jobs as a very serious person who was intent on success.
Despite all its brass and wood bits and bobs, this retro-fantastic machine hides beneath its surface a fully-functional iMac.

Klaus Diebel has always been a modder. He started out modding bicycles, then surfboards, then furniture, and now coffee-making computers.
