The Lost 1984 Video: young Steve Jobs introduces the Macintosh

by macessentials • 3,474,437 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...

It doesn't matter if you prefer Windows, Mac or Linux. If you like home computers, this is probably one of the most important moments of all time

+megahurtz30 It doesn't matter, anymore. Because we live in the world the Mac created. People in that video are going crazy for things we now all take for granted. Steve putting himself on that Mac..what a prick. :)

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?

This occurred 31 years ago and I get chills and teary eyed seeing the smooth text roll across the screen.   I started with a Sinclair ZX-81 in 1981 or so...8k memory with 8k expansion using a b&w tv and audio tape recorder to save/load programs.  I was 10.   In 1988 - three days after graduating high school I landed a on the job training Computer Operator job at a database management company.   If you didn't live through these times...if you didn't experience this from the get go...you will probably never understand.   This video ranks in my book as one of the most inspiring moments in the realm of personal computer history.   Steve Jobs later said of this moment - outside of the birth of his children - this was his proudest moment ever.  RIP Steve - Apple forever changed my life and landed me in a career which I enjoy with passion to this day.    Think Different.   RIP Steve.

Macintosh, insanely great! That has to be a T shirt. It's weird to see how actively Jobs was building his cult of personality from the beginning. Many of the jokes are self-referential and in the case of the computer speaking, slightly deifying. So this is how it works?

+Steven L I've got a bunch of life goals but I love reading about how people got to where they were successful. In Jobs' case it was a right time in history, right community to grow up in, right circumstances he was raised in / adopted into and of course right friend in Steve Wozniak.

So Apple selling obsolete and restrictive technology at exorbitant prices is nothing new.

I can't believe that people are like, "OMG why are people clapping for this it's in like 14p." I hope you all realize that this was a revolution for the time - this was 31 years ago. Also, for all the people who suck Windows' dick and say that PC is millions times better than Mac - the Mac shaped your PC of today, essentially. The upgraded version today is also an amazing machine. (Yes, I do use and love Windows, but that is the truth.)

It is funny how the public subsidized the building of computers and the internet for decades through their tax dollars, and when they were finally developed, opportunists like Steve Jobs and Bill gates came along to privatize and personalize these technologies for personal profit, by selling them to the same people who helped pay to develop them!  Great bargain, some role models they are.

University computer science student speaking here. Why did I buy a macbook pro? Because of: Wonderful screen (nice resolution, and very good color reproduction), very good battery life, very decent weight, good keyboard, one of the best touch pads.. And not to talk about the build quality, there is just no match in Windows pc world. And OS X is still very decent OS, and for me, it just gives the peace of mind that I don't have to think about viruses and hardware problems so much.  I've used Windows computers ever since Windows 95 all the way to the windows 8.1, and I think that windows still has its place. I still will use my self-built windows pc for gaming and such, but it's now in much lower use, as I do all the internet and studying stuff with my macbook. Windows for: If you need cheap, relatively reliable and adaptive OS for everything from gaming to about anything else. Mac computers for: Very reliable, very good quality, well thought out product, for nearly everything else than playing modern games.

Apple is the american religious cult and Steve Jobs was his long time leader. The same as religious fanatic who invented christian fundamentalist cult of Mormons - Joseph Smith, Steve Jobs invented the cult of Apple. His religious folowers claim that Apple computers are invincible and that Steve Jobs was a prophet. Today in 21. century, in time of huge competition on global IT market, and where big corporations like HP, Lenovo, Samsung, Toshiba, Sony, Yota Devices, Huawei, Prestigio and other manufacturers of personal computers, tablets and mobile phones are producing adequate or even better products, Apple fundamentalists still claim that their products are superior to anything on this planet, and that they are ready to die for people who run Apple cult.

He did not in fact design this as he didn't even work in the Mac division. The first he ever saw of it was a prototype about a week before this announcement. Wozniak designed the apple one and apple II and also worked as a normal engineer at Apple since.

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

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!!
