I assume at this point it's all museum stuff. Adlib gold card for $3200,
Apple 1's in the stratosphere (Steve Jobs worship.) There isn't that much
practical use for any of it outside of history. But scareness and
specultive mania drives demand I suppose.

I would think any application with that much demand has been ported or
re-written by now.
