Sam Henri Gold has completed the creation of his unofficial tribute to Apple, The Apple Archive.
The Apple Archive is a collection of all things Apple dating right back to 1977. Each year contains collections of old Apple commercials, videos, press releases and images, spanning 44 years of Apple history.
Speaking to 9to5Mac Sam said:
Now, his collection spans 15,000 files, nearly 1TB of data. It features PDDs, printed ads, WWDC sessions, clips, wallpapers and more. Sam said that through his creation he hopes to preserve Apple's history and inspire future creativity in younger generations:
Whilst it would be within Apple's power to take this down, hopefully they have no such designs. The archive is a stunning tribute to Apple's work over the last 4 decades, and includes some incredible nostalgia and creations of yesteryear.
