Honored Scott Knaster & Industrial Technology & Witchcraft proudly present: Honored
The third and final seed of
"The Lost 1984 Mac Video"

Greetings, Mac users out there.

21 years ago, on January 24th 1984, Apple introduced the Macintosh. And weíve seen that 1984 wasnít like 1984. "And you'll see why 1984, won't be like 1984"...

This time, you get it all: the complete TV broadcast of the Macintosh introduction in 1984. 21 years ago, Steve Jobs introduced the Macintosh. And it was preserved for us by Scott Knaster. The presentation was restored and digitized by TextLab.

Finally, the lights dimmed, and Steve Jobs appeared at a podium on the left side of the stage. He was resplendent in a finely tailored black suit complete with a prominent bow tie, looking more like a Las Vegas impresario than a computer industry executive. You could tell that he was nervous as he quieted the rousing applause and began to speak.

"Welcome to Apple's 1984 Annual Shareholders meeting. I'd like to begin by reading part of an old poem by Dylan, that's Bob Dylan", Steve flashed a big smile as he started to recite the second verse of "The Times They Are A-Changin'", stretching an occasional vowel in a Dylanesque fashion:

Come writers and critics
Who prophesize with your pen
And keep your eyes wide,
The chance won't come again
And don't speak too soon
For the wheel's still in spin
And there's no tellin' who that it's namin'.
For the loser now
Will be later to win
For the times they are a-changin'., ca. 4:30 min, 20 MB

The lights are dimmed so that you can hardly see Steve: "It is now 1984. Was George Orwell right?" And then the already famous 1984 commercial fills the screen.... Read the story on, ca 4:45 min, 20 MB

This is the clip we seeded as the first of the series. It shows the official introduction of the Macintosh by Steve Jobs.

Hello, I am Macintosh. It sure is great to get out of that bag!

Unaccustomed as I am to public speaking, I'd like to share with you a maxim I thought of the first time I met an IBM mainframe: Never trust a computer that you can't lift!

Obviously, I can talk, but right now I'd like to sit back and listen. So it is with considerable pride that I introduce a man who has been like a father to me... Steve Jobs!, ca 4:30 min, 20 MB

Steve adresses the two target markets for the Mac and introduces five TV clips, made by Chiat\Day, including "Manuals", the spot that almost aired instead of "1984". Read the story on
