The Mac Celebrates its 30th Birthday
Today marks the Mac's 30th birthday since Steve Jobs introduced the first Macintosh computer after it teased the world with its iconic appearance in the 1984 commercial aired during Super Bowl XVII. The computer was unveiled to the theme song of "Chariots of Fire." Apple is the only company left from that time period that is still cranking out new products in personal computing. Philip Schiller, Apple's senior vice president of worldwide marketing, said it was because of Apple's "willingness to reinvent ourselves over and over." Job's presentation of the machine's applications like MacWrite and MacPaint was met with enthusiastic applause, as many of his presentations to come would be. To celebrate Apple's milestone, a reminiscent video of their journey can be found on Apple's homepage.
