NPR's Science Friday flashes back to the Internet of 1993

Science Friday, as a part of their 20th anniversary celebrations, recently re-posted a show that originally aired in 1993, in which they discussed a new fangled technological development called “the Internet”. Its a fun flashback to what the expectations and hopes were for the Internet as it became more widely available to the public. Some of those hopes and expectations have come to pass, and others were way off the mark.

Steve Jobs action figure no longer available!

Steve Jobs action figure for the win!

 

 

Michael Gray of The Unofficial Apple Weblog, reports that the company who produced the action figure, M.I.C. Gadget, has reported that they received a request from Apple to cease production because they did not first obtain permission from Apple to use their copyrights and trademarks.

I agree with Gray that this action figure was pretty cool as far as action figures go, with the attention to detail they gave the figure. Lets hope that maybe Apple and them get this worked out in a mutual beneficial way in the future.
