Watch Steve Jobs Demo the Mac, In 1984 129

Posted by timothy

VentureBeat is one of the many outlets featuring recently surfaced video of Steve Jobs doing an early demo of the Macintosh, 30 years ago. I remember first seeing one of these Macs in 1984 at a tiny computer store in bustling downtown Westminster, Maryland, and mostly hogging it while other customers (or, I should say, actual customers) tapped their feet impatiently.

    ...Steve Jobs take credit for other people's work in this video, just like always.

    How dare you speak of Him that way. May you be forced to use Windows Phone for the remainder of your days!

    This submission really isn't about the news article at all. It's about the most important Holy Day in the Religion of the Hipster. It's a celebration of His Graceful Holiness, Steve Jobs. It's a tribute to The Creation of The Master Of All Creation, the Macintosh. It is The Most Important of Days. Please show some respect.

    Whooa! Godwin's law in just three comments! This must be some kind of a record.

    Anyway, the same could not be said for any AC! (Including this one)
