No, you haven't suddenly been transported back to the mid-1980s, somehow keeping your MacBook, iMac, iPad and iPhone in the process. A group of Apple IIgs fans at the Apple Pugetsound Program Library Exchange (A.P.P.L.E.) banded together to release the first update to their favorite computer in "22 years, 2 months, 2 days and 2 hours". The result? They were able to squash a lot of two-decade-old bugs and add some new features.
I'm wondering how you would get that up date on there?
Did that beast use 800K or 1400K floppies?

The Apple IIgs was released in 1986 at a price point of $999 USD.
The machine was a radical departure from any previous Apple II, with its true 16-bit architecture, increased processing speed, direct access to megabytes of RAM, sample-based music synthesizer, graphical user interface, and mouse.
While still maintaining full backwards compatibility with earlier Apple II models, it blended the Apple II and aspects of Macintosh technology into one. Keeping with Apple's "Apple II Forever" slogan of the time, the IIGS set forth a promising future and evolutionary advancement of the Apple II line, but Apple paid it relatively little attention as the company increasingly focused on the Macintosh platform.
