A Mac is Born

The Macintosh turned 21 this week, but what was it like on the day it was born? Now you can see it in

The Lost 1984 Mac Video

hosted at Trunkmonkey.com

"Never seen video footage of the introduction of the Macintosh in January 1984 was published for the first time on the Internet today. Renowned Mac user Scott Knaster kept that Betamax video tape for 21 years, and German media agency TextLab has unearthed this only surviving video tape of the launch."

Thanks. That was great. As someone who has used a Mac since Day 1, and is professionally involved with it as a Mac-oriented consultant, the video brought back lots of memories. Seeing Steve with a whole head of hair was fun too!
