They tweaked the large sprague caps and the small ones too much for the scene. but it’s still good to see my favorite sprague capacitors on a movie. aren’t they orange back in the days? 

this board is Apple-1 from this movie Jobs from 2013

btw, I wanted to capture the scenes. and it didn’t work with Safari browser. this helped me out. you can capture the screenshot while it’s playing on chrome. it didn’t work while posed.

I’m actually not sure if the small caps are Philips. I see the black line on the positive side and don’t see it on mine

I wonder how many of these first Apple computers are still lying around in somebody’s basement. Already the Apple II fetches some high prices: https://www.ebay.de/itm/UNIQUE-COMBO-2-2-Multiple-truly-unique-Apple-Computer-items-incl-an-Apple-II/173795669544?hash=item2877077628:g:Ha0AAOSwuQhb~hBT

the first computer I saw was Apple II at a friend’s place in the early 80’s. didn’t have any interest in it at the time. but the listing on ebay still brings me the memory

Before they’ve started to sell those home computers with Win3.0 or Win95 here in Germany, a lot of people owned Apple machines but now they are hard to find here. Not because these computers are rare but rather people just threw them away.

figured out how to read the date code on the sprague caps.

http://audiokarma.org/forums/index.php?threads/date-code-for-sprague-atom-electrolytic-capacitor.783610/

the caps from the movie have 1080H and 1019H codes on them. they came from 18th and 19th week of 2010.

I see 7613L on the original Apple-1 board. 13th week of 1976.

 

they put the fresh sprague caps on the board at ’76

Steve Wozniak’s Apple I from 1976.

Did watch the movie with Ashton Kutcher and was totally disappointed. How he has portrayed Jobs was way too much faked. Just my opinion.

it was on Netflix and didn’t think about the movie that much. I don’t have any interest in someone’s life nor a movie about it.
