Steve Jobs demos Apple Macintosh, 1984
A short video of the historic unveiling (unbagging?) in 1984 of the first Mac, during which Steve Jobs introduces the Macintosh, and the Macintosh introduces Steve. At the end, when the camera pans back across the Flint Center in Cupertino, people are practically leaping out of their seats with applause (where, incidentally, my high school graduation was also held, just four years after this video). Brings a tear to this geek’s eyes. *snif*

1983 Apple Keynote: The “1984” Ad Introduction
Many people remember Ridley Scott’s famous 1984 TV ad and think of it as the first salvo in the war between Apple and Microsoft. But it was really IBM that Apple was gunning for at the time.

10 Things Science Fiction Got Wrong
A few of the things on this list bug me too, whenever I see them in a science fiction movie. Especially the first one: I hate it when filmmakers put sound in space. Spaceships don’t go “vrrrwhoooosh!” dammit! 2001 is practically the only film that gets this right. However, the rest of the article contains some pretty wild claims, some of them just plain wrong. The best part of the entire post is the comments, where a legion of often-self-proclaimed huge dorks pick apart the original article and provide endless evidence to counter the author’s claims.
