Found Footage: Steve Jobs 1984 keynote

This is an excerpt from a 1984 Steve Jobs keynote address showing off some new features in the Mac. Amazing at the time. Notice how tan Steve is, not to mention his need for a haircut. But those were the 80's. I also really like how the crowd goes wild!

Boston Wi-Fi Jump-Started With Macs

Reported on MacSlash:
The first wireless network to join Boston's recently-announced city wi-fi project will be run exclusively on Macs. The "Mac network, called BostonOpen.net, will provide access for about $15 a month for mobile Mac users." The operator of the network believes that this will be the first Mac-only wireless ISP. Why Macs? "Mac users already know that they need less support than PC users. So, if they're easier to support, they deserve cheaper access." Makes sense to me!

Apple adds new “Get A Mac” TV ads

Apple has released three new TV ads for its "“Get A Mac" campaign. You can see them on the web site.

The new ads are named "Out of the Box", "Touché" and "Work vs. Home". These replaced the initial ones released in early May.

"New" Mac advantages are covered by these new ads: that Macs are ready to use out of the box, that they can run Windows and that they can do funny things.

I just love these commercials! They say it how it really is...macs are better and it is more than just a "cool" thing. Although I would have to say that macs ARE much cooler that PCs. By far.
