Happy Birthday Macintosh
"It was 20 years ago today ..."
Actually, it was January 24, 1984 when Apple announced the Macintosh to their Board of Directors and to the world. Two days earlier, the now-famous "1984" commercial had aired during the Super Bowl. MacDailyNews has a little write-up about the historic product launch and the groundbreaking commercial that TV Guide said "did more to change the way ads are created and viewed than any commercial in years."
Oh, and you can view the commercial here, too.
