The original version, sold without a keyboard, monitor or power supply, came equipped with only 8 kilobytes of RAM, which is small potatoes compared to today’s memory standards. A major drawback of the Apple-1 was the lack of a floppy drive. The programs were loaded onto the memory from cassette tapes that were sold separately, making the total invoice for the Apple-1 a mere $741.66. One tape, labeled “BASIC,” that was used to load programming language, will be included in the sale at the auction.Other items said to be included will be original packaging, manuals, cassette interface, basic tape, early documentation and provenance and a rare letter from Steve Jobs.Though the Apple-1 was the first of its kind, it was soon replaced in 1977 by the more famous Apple II. Just two months ago, another Apple-1 was sold on Ebay for $22,766.66 with only the cassette interface. The auction will be at Christie’s auction house in London on November 23rd and feature the the Apple-1 alongside manuscripts and papers by Charles Babbage, Alan Turing and more. The Apple-1 is expected to sell for an estimated $242,400.

Tips for makeuploving contact lens wearers


first_imgHave you been recently detected with a vision prescription and are now worried about applying make-up? Or are you someone who has been a long time contact lens wearer, but worry about ruining your makeup, and even your eyes? Let’s bring an end to your agony. Eye redness, itching and watering are some of the problems that contact lens wearers are quite familiar with and hence experts have suggested some tips that comes in handy the next time you want to apply makeup while wearing your contact lenses.Maintain proper hygiene: Considering you touch a thousand things during the day and may even miss out on washing your hands, you definitely would not like millions of bacteria to enter your eyes through your fingertips. Hence, always ensure washing your hands thoroughly before wearing lenses.Always put your lenses in first: As a thumb rule, it is advised to always wear your contact lenses before you begin with your make-up ritual. This minimizes the chances of makeup getting on the contact lens and also reduces the probability of your eyes catching any infection.Clean make-up tools: It is advised to clean the make-up tools before applying makeup considering dust and dirt tends to clog the makeup brushes when used continuously. This step is especially vital when you are wearing contact lenses. You can immerse the makeup tools in hot water mixed with some gentle baby shampoo.Clean your lenses too: If you are not using a Daily disposable Contact lens which are made to be use and throw, you require cleaning your lenses after each use with approved contact lens care solution. You should follow your eye care practitioner’s recommendation for the choice of solution. Bausch + Lomb’s Biotrue Solution is effective for all types of Soft contact lenses.Use oil-free and waterproof mascara: Opting for waterproof and oil-free mascara while wearing contact lenses is a better option, since using mascaras with strong oil-based substances can cause it to flake, and enter the eyes or bind with the contact lens thus causing irritation and watering eyes and ultimately ruining your make-up.Use cream-based eye shadows: Instead of going for powder or glitter eyes shadows which may allow excess powder inside eyes, opt for cream-based eye shadows that won’t smudge around your eyes.Be careful with your waterline: It is usually advised to refrain from applying kajal or liner on your waterline, if you wear contact lenses. However, if you must, then invest in a kajal pencil that is most importantly smudge-proof and sharpened, in order to avoid getting any of it on your lenses.Always keep a check on the expiry of your products: Like everything else, makeup products too have an expiry date. Hence, avoid using old products as the ingredients become toxic and can harm your eyes. Also, avoid sharing eye makeup with others, as this increases the chances of contacting an infection.ianslast_img read more
