Very cool.  I have the AppleLine manual, but not the device.  I've scanned it here:


as well as the packing list (not of great use I suppose):

The manual might be a bit more helpful for using it (rather than just providing sales demos), but it does have the same information in it concerning the default passwords.

(Not a problem if someone wants to host these elsewhere as well -- but I expect the Dropbox links above will be stable for a long time, and there will be some alternative and more Googlable location for them if I break them.)
