Here’s a video of Steve Jobs, unveiling the Macintosh at the Boston Computer Society general meeting – just six days after the unveiling at Apple’s shareholder meeting which we’ve seen in the previous post. Read the full story here.
The Cupertino and Boston demos may have been based in part on the same script, but the audience, atmosphere and bonus materials were different. In Cupertino, Jobs spoke before investors, towards the end of a meeting which also included dreary matters such as an analysis of Apple’s cash flow. In Boston, he presented to the kind of people who Apple hoped would buy Macs. You didn’t even have to pay the BCS’s $24 annual membership fee to get in, which meant that the meeting was the closest thing the computer had to a launch event intended for the general public.

Apple celebrates the 30th birthday of the Macintosh by putting up a wonderfully designed page – featuring of course, the Macintosh.
The page features a Mac Timeline that showcases all the various Macs launched over the 30 years – starting from the Macintosh 128k in 1984 to the recently launched Mac Pro. Each section also highlights a famous personality and how the Mac in that year contributed to their line of work.
There’s also a short survey that asks about your first Macintosh and how you used it. The results are showed in an interactive mapping which shows how Macs are used.
My first Macs I owned was a Power Mac G4 “QuickSilver” and a PowerBook G3 “Pismo” in 2002 – both lasted me for almost 6 years before my current machine – the MacBook Pro 2008 model. Though the battery is almost dead, I am still maintaining this site, editing my photos and surfing with it.
Speaking about the first Mac – this is the first time anyone has seen a Mac.
What is your first Mac?
