:: 1984 - the lost video Macintosh Introduction video recovered [auf deutsch]
What we’ve never seen indeed, was the big day itself. Lots of historic stuff has been preserved - images, texts, even sounds, and the saga has been told on and on. However only very few people have actually seen how Steve Jobs pulls the first Mac out of this bag, how the Mac introduces itself to the public, Steves biggest grin ever, and how he is obviously overwhelmed by this moment in the Cupertino Flint Center.
Fear not, faithful Mac believers. We have found it. We have found what seems to be the only copy of a public TV broadcast on that very day. It was recorded and preserved by Scott Knaster, the »legendary Mac hacker«, as Amazon puts it. Scott kept the tape (a NTSC Betamax III longplay) for 21 years since he keeps everything. Andy Hertzfeld saw it when he wrote the story »The Times They Are A-Changin’« on folklore.org. From there we followed the hints, and that’s how we found it.
But now, Ladies and Gentlemen: please welcome - the 1984 Macintosh introduction video. A travel back in time…Quelle: | by it&w | 1:01 Uhr | 1x Senf , 1046x besichtigt | aus: Macintosh - Mac History | Permalink |
