APDA contact info
taken from this 1995 PDF
AppleLink was the name of both Apple Computer's online service for its dealers, third party developers, and users, and the client software used to access it. Prior to the commercialization of the Internet, AppleLink was a popular service for Mac and Apple IIGS users. The service was offered from about 1986 to 1994 to various groups, before being superseded by their short-lived eWorld and finally today's multiple Apple websites.
3 this book goes with it or shortly followed it as it looks visually similar

oh but it says 1992 published
MIDI Manager :
    Apple's MIDI Manager offers a high level interface to the
    Mac OS to correctly support the timing accuracy required
    by MIDI hardware and software under MultiFinder. It is
    for doing Inter-Application Communication and for
    allowing multiple applications to address the serial
    port. MIDI Manager does not come with the System - it is
    available to developers or as licensed software with MIDI
    application packages. $35 list. APDA.

****e-msg from August 1991****

Here are the extracted files from the above disk image.

Format a 720KB floppy IN A PC (Win 7, 8 and 10 cannot format a floppy at 720KB)
The floppy must be a DD disk NOT a 1.44 HD one.
Copy the files in the ZIP to the floppy.
Put the floppy in your Atari
(if you have any C-Lab dongles you can run the uncracked "CREATOR.PRG")
These files will work fine on an UltraSatan SD hard drive.

Those Radio Shack PCs look really cool with the 5 1/4 drives!
in UK we had cheap Amstrad PCs but monitors had non-standard connectors because the PSU of the whole system was.....inside the monitor! :D

So the cannot be used nowadays with a TFT.
