Prima demonstratie publica a Mac-ului este prezentata intr-un clip video ascuns timp de 3 decenii (Video)

  Acum cateva zile v-am oferit posibilitatea de a vedea un clip video aparut acum cativa ani pe internet, el prezentandu-ne, ceea ce credeam a fi, prima demonstratie publica a Macintosh-ului, facuta de catre Steve Jobs in 1984. Desi timp de multi ani de zile destui au crezut ca atunci Steve Jobs a aratat pentru prima oara publicului noul produs al Apple, in realitate Macintosh-ul a fost initial prezentat investitorilor Apple, dar apoi a fost prezentat celor care au asistat la o intalnire a Boston Computer Society.

Fortunately for posterity, the production values on the video version of the meeting are quite good — far better than what Apple managed for the shareholder meeting. (In Cupertino, the lighting had been so murky at times that the only thing you can see clearly is Jobs’ white shirt gleaming from inside his jacket.) Apple sprung for multiple cameras, one of which was manned by the BCS’s [videographer Glenn] Koenig. Moments with subpar camera work in the Cupertino video, such as when Jobs pulls the Mac out of its bag and boots it up, are nicely shot in this one.

  Practic in cadrul acestei intalniri Steve Jobs a prezentat pentru prima oara Macintosh-ul publicului, iar multumita unui editor al Time Magazine vedem si noi aceasta prezentare. Intregul clip video are nu mai putin de 90 de minute si il puteti vizualiza mai sus, el fiind inregistrat de catre o persoana care nu a oferit publicului casetele pana in ziua de astazi. Practic prezentarea facuta de catre Jobs pentru Boston Computer Society si cea facuta presei mai tarziu sunt asemanatoare si daca doriti detalii suplimentare, le puteti gasi in articolul disponibil in Time.

As presented here, the video — which is a rough cut of the version which the Computer History Museum will preserve — has a few moments which have been reconstructed. The slides which Jobs shows are the same ones he presented in Boston, but they’re borrowed from the video of the Cupertino event. And when Jobs shows a blurry slide of the IBM PC — provoking mirth from the audience and prompting him to say “Let’s be fair” — the blurring is a recreation of what really happened. (To this day, [BCS co-founder Jonathan] Rotenberg isn’t sure whether it was a prank on Apple’s part or a bona-fide technical glitch.)
