The Lost 1984 Video: young Steve Jobs introduces the Macintosh

by macessentials • 3,319,783 views

The Original 1984 Macintosh Introduction: the magic moment, when Steve Jobs unveils the Macintosh and releases it from its bag. We've found these historical lost videos in 2004 and restored and...

I've gone through 7 windows laptops in the last 8 years.  I still have my iMac that I purchased in 2006 and it still runs as fast as the day I purchased it.

dude if you go through 7 laptops in 8 years either you buy the cheapest stuff on the market or you have no clue on how to use a computer at all

Why are there a number of videos about Steve Jobs on YouTube whose title claims to have been lost? If they had been lost, who found them? Where did they find them? How did they get lost in the first place?
Report spam or abuse
And a lot of people fell for it. Why would anyone who knows anything about computers use a Mac?

#‎vintagetech‬ Steve Jobs presenta il ‪#‎Macintosh‬. Era il 1984, come il titolo del celebre libro di George Orwell nel quale troviamo spunti di riflessione come questo: "[...]Tu pensi che la realtà sia un qualcosa di oggettivo, di esterno, qualcosa che abbia un'esistenza autonoma. Credi anche che la natura della realtà sia di per se stessa evidente. Quando inganni te stesso e pensi di vedere qualcosa, tu presumi che tutti gli altri vedano ciò che vedi tu. Ma io ti dico, Winston, che la realtà non è un qualcosa di esterno, la realtà esiste solo nella mente e in nessun altro luogo"

My husband came home from work in 1984 one day and said everyone in his department was being given a Macintosh computer. I said, what do we do with it? Thirty years later I am still on an Apple Mac  and Apple products and haven't changed.  Yes Macs are expensive, but Yes they do last longer than some others that I hear about  [even though after 3 years, Apple thinks it is old and at times is somewhat unsupportive :(  ] No they are not perfect and I have issues now and then with the software "Geeks" who make some good and some bad changes. BUT I still love MAC, and I wish I had the original Mac..bad mistake to get rid of it!!

The features didn't age well, but the thunderous applause was for everything that was new. Full-screen animation was new. High-resolution imagery was new (even if it was black and white). Font rendering (and MacWrite) was new. Bitmapped UI with windows and menus was new (if inspired by Xerox). Drawing using a single-button mouse in MacPaint on a high-rez display was entirely new. Speech synthesis was almost unheard-of. Four-voice digital sound was new (and wasn't even demoed, and took YEARS before it even showed up on SoundBlaster for PC). Filenames that could be long and have spaces in them and not need to show file extensions, completely new. Icons, etc. all new. While the Mac isn't known for gaming, the early Mac games were the best games available at the time, on any platform. Dark Castle was legendary. MacGolf was the first golf game. The Alice-in-Wonderland chess game demoed here was called "Through The Looking Glass" and TO THIS DAY is the only game Apple has ever produced (ok, save for poker on the first iPhone!) (Jobs was unfortunately not a fan of games. I assume he already had to defend from accusations that the Mac was too "Fisher-Price". Hey, a man can't see EVERYthing.) I first encountered a Mac 128k in a computer store at the age of 12 and without realizing it, the entire course of my life had changed. After the sales rep demoed it, I sensed that something "insanely great" was afoot. Frankly it was probably the most amazing thing I had seen up until that point, and I was quickly obsessed. Fortunately, begging my parents to drop the 4 grand (!) it cost to buy that, an ImageWriter, and a 300 baud Apple modem, worked (to this day I have no idea why, as they have otherwise always been extremely frugal... I like to think that they saw something in my eyes), and a career in computers was born.

Why is there still a debate like this? If you want a powerful thin machine buy a surface pro 3. If you want a insanely powerful thick machine buy the Alienware 19. If you want a desktop ask for the windows 8 and say please. If you want quality build with power and thinness buy the ultra book or zenbook macs can go flee. Microsoft has taken over every good computer while Steve jobs designs simple average power machines with good graphics and nice outside it just looks nice. Just wait till there are Apple consoles and apple furniture and apple transportation and Google collides with them and everyone is technology it's crazy how Apple wants to be the best at everything tablets its fare to say Apple does make the best phones probably but again if you like more control and customization Samsung but I think phones by them are good. That my friend is all Apple can do

+epickid 69iii The problem with all your solutions is that Windows is an absolutely horrible, buggy, UI-unfriendly, insecure, spyware-ridden, annoying-you-every-fucking -minute of an OS that is only good for gaming at this point. If you want to get real work done without being interrupted with crap like forced-reboots, you need a Mac.

One of those "Case Modders" out there could have some fun with an used version this original 128K model. They could replace the screen with a current ultra hi-rez AMOLED screen and put in a Next Unit of Computing (NUC) sized Mother Board and a fast SSD Drive.. In essence, they would be creating a retro looking "Hack-N-Tosh" They would then be able to install the latest OSX Operating System version and do everything every one else who owns a current MAC can do.

Yeah, well... anyone who thinks PCs are so much better because they are so much faster -- they need to be to overcome the shortcomings of Windows which invariably slows the system down and causes it to fail inexplicably.  If you have never used a mac, you may not know what you are missing, and you probably have no idea how a computer should work.  Every PC becomes sluggish with time.  Like some others who have commented, my entire office is Mac by intention, because they are so much more reliable (we threw out the PCs).  And my 17" macbook pro runs as fast and smoothly as it did the day I got it, 4 years ago, and not once has it crashed.  Meanwhile every new issuance of Windows seems worst than the last.  Windows 8?  Really?

Much as I hate the Apple OS I have to hand it to Apple.  They introduced graphics on personal computers.  That alone changed computing forever. By the way I still have an old Apple Performa 550 (which looks very much like this model) that I fire up from time to time just to play games on.

I was in elementary school at the time. We had no idea what we were missing so we were happy! But now - if everyone had internet and smartphones taken away we`d be freaking out and not know what to do with ourselves. Back then there weren`t even cellphones! At least not consumer cellphones, maybe just massive industrial ones.

R.I.P Mr Jobs. I'd always doubted Apple Products and thought they were locked down and ridiculous. I was hard set into Microsoft products for a while, while they were still half decent but that no longer is so. Unfortunately now that Windows is hideous and becoming locked-down itself (instead of a bios boot screen I notice newer computers boot straight to the windows 8 loading logo. That's nice, make a little harder microsoft) So without further ado, If I can't Stick with Windows XP or 7 forever I'm just gonna hug my Macbook air :P

+Jonp Still means that Jobs had an eye for the future. He knew that the GUI was going to be big; Xerox didn't. If Xerox knew what they were sitting on, then whoever was heading the company at the time would've likely been held in the same regard as Steve Jobs is now.
