Doesn’t it seem like yesterday?

Via CBS News:

January 24th, 1984, 32 years ago today … the day Apple delivered on a promise it made in a Super Bowl commercial just two days earlier….

At $2,500, consumers found that original Macintosh too expensive for what it could actually do. Sales fell short of expectations. And in little more than a year, Jobs was effectively forced to leave the company….

On the verge of bankruptcy in 1997, Apple brought Jobs back — and what followed was a seemingly endless succession of successful Apple products, continuing up to Jobs’ death in 2011 — and beyond….

By the way, the early 1984 Macintosh computer had 0.13 MegaBytes of memory. The iPhone 6S, introduced last year, has 16 GigaBytes … that’s 123,000 thousand times more memory.

    The apple 1984 Macintosh commercial is one of the best commercials I have ever seen. It was only shown once during the 1984 Superbowl. Great advertising by Apple.
