In 1980, the forerunner of the MacCafé, Abacus II, first opened it's doors. While the Macintosh did not exist at the time, Abacus II was authorized as an Apple Reseller. By the time of the Macintosh introduction in 1984, Abacus II was the leading reseller of Apple products in N.W. Ohio.

Over the next two decades, Abacus II opened, closed and moved several retail locations and business-to-business sales offices in Ohio finally settling at the Sylvania building that housed all divisions. Over that time period, the company had become authorized to sell and service a wide spectrum of major brands in addition to Apple. The focus had also changed to small to medium businesses as the core customer.

Early in the new century, it became apparent that to best service the Mac community, we would have to create a separate business unit specializing in Apple products. In 2002 the new MacCafé began operation as an Apple Specialist. Our beginnings were humble, with only a one person sales staff and 600 sq. ft of retail storefront. Since then, we have grown in staff, space and most significantly, with the addition of the service department.

In October 2007, we moved to our present location at 4405 Talmadge Rd. With this move we were able to create a better experience for our customers with a bigger showroom and a more spacious service area.

04/13/17: Use Siri or Spotlight to Open Apps You Can't Find
It’s easy to find the apps you use regularly on your iPhone or iPad, but there’s little more frustrating than needing an app you seldom launch and not being able to find it. You could scroll through all the home screens on your device and hope you recognize the icon, but here’s a faster approach. Search in Spotlight by swiping down on the home screen and entering the first few letters of the app’s name. That’s especially handy if you can’t remember exactly what the app is called. If you can remember the app’s name, another quick approach is to hold down the Home button, wait for Siri to activate, and then ask Siri to “open” the app’s name, as in “Open Runkeeper.”
