Happy 27th Birthday Mac

"Happy Birthday to the Mac! Apple introduced the very first Macintosh on January 24, 1984, beginning an era that is still going strong 27 years later."

Check out these specs folks:

  • 8 MHz processor;
  • 128kb of RAM;
  • 9″ black and white display with a 512×342 resolution;
  • 3.5″ disk drive

And for the paltry sum of $2,495.00 USD it could all have been yours. Wow. Pretty incredible how far we have come isn't it?

Mac 1984 Ad Man Passes Away

"Although Guy Day is about as far away from the hard boozing, womanizing, red-meat-eating Don Draper type as a 70s-style pompadour will get you, he was one of the country's quintessential ad men for decades. Everyone reading this blog knows his work: as the president of the acclaimed Chiat / Day advertising agency, Day was responsible for bringing together the team that created the hyper-Orwellian 1984 Super Bowl Macintosh ad."

Sadly, this past Saturday Mr. Day passed away in Los Angeles of natural causes. I remember watching this commercial during that Super Bowl, and it really piqued my interest in what the heck this Mac thing was going to be, which I'm sure was the intent of it all. Here is a link to a modified version of the "1984 Mac ad that has the heroine wearing an iPod.
