Harry Marks: So this is where I spend good part of my day experimenting, working on stuff. Since I retired I really haven't invested in any enormous new equipment. I have a PC, which I use to prove things, just to make sure that they ran on both systems. Then I've got an older G4 down there. I recently bought this 24-inch iMac because it was the last one with the matte screen. I don't like the glossy screen.
It's a nice computer. It seems to run everything pretty well. When I left television, I left totally burned out. I felt I just didn't want to do that anymore. Apple came along and started a group called the AppleMasters, and they invited 20 people to come to Apple, and they kind of opened the back doors and let us see everything, and showered us with equipment and treated us very well and said, this is a year program, we welcome you and invite you and you will be replaced by the next group.
We lasted four years. The group got to be quite large and quite-- I mean, they were great people to hang out with, but they didn't know anything about computers. There were only four of us that went on to open markets for them. We went all over the world and held classes and held classes with celebrities, held classes with kids, held classes with kids and celebrities, and I would say it was the best four years of my life, it was so exciting. Not just going to Singapore and having this wonderful spectrum of people that you're teaching and talking to, but just hanging out with that group, it was just wonderful.
