Update #18 - Commercials February & The Amiga
February 11th 2021

Truth to be told, this was not a single update. If you hung around the site lately, you probably ran into a lot of new content uploaded during the few weeks. And you've probably found the new Amiga category. That's right - the Commodore machine has its place on Cornica too now.

So what exactly IS new? Tons of great quicktime material - and I'm not exaggerating. Do you know the Pencil Test video Apple created in 1988 to show off the Macintosh II?

Or the infamous Knowledge Navigator video from 1990, which was Apple's (read: John Sculley's) vision for the future?

We've also got a good dozen of new Mac commercials in our datase, simply too many to list them all here.

Cornica needs you!
We've already got a steady bunch of loyal visitors. But I keep running into dedicated retro Mac users who never heard about Cornica and its mission. Please spread the word, mention Cornica on your website, on facebook or your favorite forums. I highly appreciate every support!

Update #17 - Hey, it's 2021!
January 16th 2021

Who would have imagined it is 2021 and instead of building biospheres on Mars colony or fighting aliens we'd still be here watching Quicktime video on our trusty old Macs? :-)

And well, we've got some new stuff coming too. Dronecatcher uploaded a big archive of Quicktime movies I haven't yet been able to plough through completely, but you can find two of his music tracks over in the music category. Gosh, I need to stop listening to his Hiroshimaz ...

If you want to relive the excitement of the 90s Power Macintosh days, we've got a commercial to take you back: Remember what the Future used to be?. I've also added some less exciting Apple commercials, this post isn't a complete changelog.

Also a new addition is an authentic 1990 review from Computer Chronicles' Paul Schindler for the Mac calendar software Alarming Events. I always digged his I'm-on-high-coffeine-30-seconds-software-reviews. I'll add more of them in the future.

Until then, stay healthy and have fun with your old obsolete machines!

Update #16 - Following a 90s tradition ...
December 26th 2020

Quicktime was a true pioneering computer video technology. For the first time, it would allow Mac users (and others) to download and watch trailers for the movies running at their local cinema.

We're honoring this tradition today by a massive update in our movie trailer category. From Star Trek trailers to National Christmas Lampoon's to trashy 50's Sci-Fi, you'll surely find something of interest for you.

Meanwhile we've replaced the buttons in our video category with more pleasant ones.

This is the final update for 2020, the year of (re)birth of Cornica. We look forward to continue building the ultimate Quicktime resource and hopefully a place you'll keep dropping by with your old Macintosh, PC, Amiga or Atari.

Everyone stay healthy and have a Happy New Year 2021!

Update #15 - More video - here you go!
December 5th 2020

We continue to bring the best of Quicktime video entertainment to your Mac OS machine! (well, and other systems too ...)

The last weeks saw a lot of new videos added to our archives. From a Quicktime VR of the Ace of Base studio in 1995 to new Mac OS game trailers. We also had our first user movie uploaded (thanks for the contribution, PowerFinnrich!).

We're planning on another big update before Christmas time - this time with tons of movie trailers that will take you back to the 80's and 90s! In the meantime, feel free to upload your Quicktime treasures. And always, have fun with your retro Macs!

Update #14 - Introducing two new categories
November 15th 2020

As promised, this update brings two new categories to Cornica: Music (yay!) and Microsoft (boo!). Seriously, even the arch-nemesis should have its corner, given we even have Windows users surfing on Cornica. So now you can reminiscent the days of Windows 95 and other software tragedies.

Our new Music category will feature everything related to music - from concert clips to DAW software on the Macintosh. And then even our commercials section got updated with the original TV ad for the Mac Classic II.

That said, we have yet to find our upload server fed! Don't be shy, share your Quicktime videos with us! You can find all the info on how to contribute to Cornica on our Upload page.

Update #13 - new game videos & more on history
November 11th 2020

Thus far we've received positive feedback on the final design and the added features - thanks a lot to all taking the time to write in! You have no idea what a booster feedback is on a hobby project :-)

That said, we're welcoming new additions to our Games and history category. Lots of old game trailer for titles such as The Sims, Gabriel Knight, Railroad Tycoon 2 & more have been added. There's also half a dozen new videos of authentic 80s & 90s news reports in the history section.

So much for today, next time we'll introduce one or two new categories and of course another boatload full of Quicktime video, so you can have fun with your old Mac like in the old days!
