Apple celebrates the Macintosh’ 30th Birthday (Video)
Apple has been around since 1976 and love them or hate them, they have changed millions of peoples lives, thanks to Steve Jobs’ vision and the genius of the engineers, developers and designers that have worked for them.
On the 24th of January 1984 Apple introduced the Macintosh. It was the first mass-market personal computer featuring a graphical user interface and mouse. The Apple Macintosh was eventually overtaken by the IBM personal computer in sales, but was still the reason that Apple remained the second largest PC manufacturer until 1994.
Thirty years ago the Apple Macintosh promised to put technology in the hands of the people and I think they have achieved that goal to some extend. Apple brought us the iPhone, iPad and iPod and will continue to design and develop gadgets that have the ability to make life easier.
To celebrate the Macintosh’s 30th birthday, this film was shot around the world in one day, entirely on iPhone. It only took 36 hours to edit. It’s quite spectacular, check it out below, you’ll probably agree with my assessment.
So, what do you think? I have to admit that I’m not a huge Apple fan, but you can’t deny the impact they have had on society and technology over the last four decades. Leave a comment and let me know what you think. Feedback is appreciated and welcome here.
