Floppy Days Episode 88 - The Apple III - Part 2

Hi, all, and welcome to Floppy Days #88 for December, 2018.  I’m your host, Randy Kindig, and it’s hard to believe that 2018 is coming to an end.  I hope you all had a great year! As stated in the last show, we are into the year 1981 for computer introductions and we are covering the Apple II’s more powerful sibling, the Apple III.  This is part 2 of the 2-part series and will again have Paul Hagstrom, prolific podcaster himself, to help me cover this machine. We will continue where we left off the last show, and will cover magazines, books, software, emulators, Web sites and a whole lot more.  Stay tuned to learn more than you ever wanted to know about the Apple III.
