Hi Sam:
IIRC the 'Apricot' is a domestic (USA) Apple clone/look alike/work
If you don't find any better info, hollar, and I'll go through some of
my Byte/Kilobaud/InformationAge etc.

He, who will not reason, is a bigot;       William Drumond,
he, who cannot, is a fool;                  Scottish writer
and he, who dares not, is a slave.              (1585-1649)
While he that does, is a free man!          Joseph P. 1955-
