See Steve Jobs giving the first public demonstration of the Macintosh computer back in 1984


The Macintosh PC turned 30 this year and that has led to all sorts of commemoration for the personal computer from Apple. Perhaps none is so impressive as the video posted by Time Magazine which shows the first public demonstration of the Macintosh, in full, at its reveal at the Boston Computer Society in 1984.

The original Time article has a lengthy and quite interesting piece on how this presentation (below) was preserved after the video was located on an obsolete format and converted to digital but the presentation itself as a piece of history is what caught Stuff‘s eye.

If you have an hour and a half to spare, step back in time about 30 years to when Steve Jobs was a young man, the home computer was a fairly new concept and the world was about to change.
