Anyone know where in Australia I can purchase these two books:

The Cult of Mac (http://www.nostarch.com/frameset.php?startat=cult_mac) by Leander Kahney and Revolution in The Valley (http://www.oreilly.com/catalog/revolution/) by Andy Hertzfeld

I want to read them but don't want to pay the postage price on them :P
Maybe even if a few people want them we can split up the postage price and it will only work it's way down to $2 a book or something.

decryption: shouldn't your local book store be able to get them in for you? I'm rather clueless at finding books these days...

I've got Apple Confidential 2.0 ( http://www.owenink.com/ac/contents.html ) is fantastic. Gives you quite a detailed history of the company and the products they made.

And Disko: yeah, they could, but would charge me for the privilege :\

Revolution in the Valley seems to be just Folklore.org. Now I know why Andy Hertzfeld stopped updating that site.

Has anyone read The Second coming of Steve Jobs?

Books are sort of frozen web pages preserved using reprocessed timber pulp as an imitation screen and dark markings to represent pixels. You need auxillary illumination but the batteries never run out.

They are great,
