Steve Jobs introduces the Macintosh for the first time

(5:11) Wind back to 1984 when a young Steve Jobs let Macintosh out of the bag for the very first time. Lost video, found and restored in 2004.

Latest comment: I am glad somebody found this video as it is proof that Mr Jobs was not a visionary but a very good sales man who managed to create the first computerized religion. What this video shows was how a very good salesman who had recently made the biggest ******* of anybody's career which was why the Macintosh computer was born. For those who don't know the facts it goes as simple as this. Apple were to provide the operating system for IBM's new P.C. however the rich half-wit had put the wrong date in his diary for going to show the new software in action. IBM were not very happy about this and so asked Mr Gates if he would like to come and show them his idea for an operating system (which he had been touting for sometime) because Mr Jobs had decided to go and race his racing car instead of turning up at the single most important meeting of 1983. So now Apple have an operating system but no hardware for it thus the Macintosh had to be born or the company would have crumbled as the IBM P.C. was going to smash the computing world apart .

Cheeses H Christ - doesn't anybody out there understand what Steve Jobs put in place?! No, sadly, not even Stephen Fry.

Apple are a big bad corporation just like IBM. No better, no worse. Apple were innovative within the personal computing market but IBM were equally innovative with their respective market. IBM just wanted a bigger share of an emerging market just like Apple want one of music, phones etc, etc..
