Remember when candy cost a penny and $20 could fill your gas tank at the pump with cash to spare? Pepperidge Farm remembers.
Remember when Apple products were designed with sensible functionality that made computing simple without taking away useful features that absolutely nobody asked them to remove?
Pepperidge Farm remembers. That’s why Pepperidge Farm switched to Linux PCs when Apple got a crusty cookie stuck up its iHole about USB ports and 3.5mm headphone jacks. Don’t cross Pepperidge Farm.
Yes, it seems unthinkable today, but there was a time many moons ago when Apple cared more about making a better computer than strong-arming customers into buying buggy, overpriced products that looked like sci-fi props and rushing out operating systems apparently debugged by Ralph Wiggum. Thanks to the elago W3 Vintage Apple Monitor Watch Stand, you can now fondly remember the era lovingly shaped by Steve Wozniak and the late Steve Jobs every time you check your docked Apple Watch’s display to remind yourself how long you have until your Genius Bar appointment.
After all, Woz knows, if anything will make you long you long for the days when the slogan “Think Different” meant something more meaningful than “Make them wonder what drugs you were on when you decided this was an improved design,” it would be waiting around for some hipster to tell you what’s wrong with your brand-new Macbook that costs what some people spend on a used car or out-of-pocket medical expenses.
Fortunately, this dock’s classically inspired frame lines up perfectly with your Apple Watch’s display to generate the illusion of staring at a vintage monitor. While your timepiece charges, you can still use every key function at your fingertips as usual, including messaging and the alarm clock. Even the scratch-free silicone materials impressively resemble the outside of an old-fashioned Apple desktop’s case while reliably preventing damage as it rests on whatever surface could do with a nerdy touch of Memory Lane.
Best of all, the elago W3 Vintage Apple Monitor Watch Stand is compatible with every Apple Watch series to date and Nightstand Mode from WatchOS 2 onward.
