NeXT Computers: Another pioneering endeavor by Steve Jobs!

Presenting NeXT Computers by Black Hole Inc.

We specialize in purchasing, selling, trading, upgrading, and refurbishing NeXT 68K Hardware.

Additionally, we deal in NeXTSTEP Software, promotional items, books, manuals, magazines, and peripherals.

Sir Tim Berners-Lee, using NeXTSTEP Developer tools on his NeXT Cube at CERN, invented the World Wide Web. Despite his vision, his bosses at CERN initially disagreed with the idea.

We proudly feature the NeXT Cube that took center stage during the 2012 opening ceremonies of the Olympic Games in London. Sir Tim Berners-Lee showcased this remarkable machine, demonstrating its significance in history.

Sir Tim wrote a special printer driver for NeXT, enabling real-time audience participation. When he typed, the giant fonts spelled out „this is for everyone,“ illuminating his profound message.

Previously, I had the pleasure of repairing and refurbishing Sir Tim Berners-Lee’s NeXT Cube during his tenure as President of the World Wide Web Consortium at MIT, adding another enjoyable project to my repertoire.
