AsistantPickle was a desktop toy by Thoru Yamamoto, released for Macintosh in September 2000, featuring a suite of tiny applications:
- TinyLauncher (use the blue arrows)
It can now be downloaded at: https://macintoshgarden.org/apps/asistantpickle
This copy of the previously lost app was found on Japanese Macintosh magazine MacPeople2000 No.22 CD-ROM which was recently acquired for my Macintosh Magazine Media collection.
Thoru also created PalmPickle a similar suite of apps for PalmOS.
Pickle is probably Thoru’s most well-known character. Pickle’s Book was a masterpiece of interactive media, released for Macintosh in 1994 and available for iPhone and iPad since 2014.
Note: the typo in the title (Asistant) is as it has always been.
