Heather gray hooded sweatshirt featuring "Mackintosh Staff" on the front (the "K" scribbled through as a design element), and "90 HRS/WK, And Loving It!" on the back. In very good to fine condition, with a small hole to the hood's seam and some staining to the front pocket.

Manock recalls: "As we neared the Mac introduction date, predicted by the famous '1984' Super Bowl commercial, everyone was working long, extra hours... especially the software team including Andy Hertzfeld and the digital design team including Burrell Smith. I think Burrell was rapidly becoming burned out by the tight schedule, so at a staff party he put a piece of tape over the '9' on the sweatshirt so it read '0 HRS/WK, And Loving It!' to great amusement."

Hired in February 1979 as a service technician, Burrell Smith proved his technical acumen by helping to add more memory to an Apple II computer. Recruited as an engineer for the Macintosh project, he went on to design five different Macintosh motherboards, including one for the LaserWriter Printer. From the collection of product design engineer Jerrold C. Manock, and accompanied by a letter of provenance signed by Manock.
