Here we see Steve Jobs at a keynote in 1983 showing for the first time ever the famous "1984" ad by Ridley Scott to an exclusive audience. The ad was shown on tv shortly after that only once during the 1984 Superbowl & never aired again & is considered to be one of the greatest ads of all time.

Ad directed by Ridley Scott (Blade Runner), featuring Anya Major as the hammer thrower. A British model, Major was also an athlete, perfectly suited for the role. Most actresses at the casting call could barely manage the sledgehammer; Major, a discus thrower, got the part. At the time of the commercial, she was about 17 years old.

What was not shown is what was most important: Gates looking directly at Jobs during the airing of the commercial, with waiting-in-the-wings plans of his own.

God fucking damn. Am I supposed to be scared of Apple right now? But there's nowhere to turn.
MikeToreno (2 years ago)
What's weird is that all those people in gray suits marching in lockstep are apple customers. IBM used an open architecture and there were lots of IBM-compatible computers right from the beginning. There are still lots and lots of Windows computers from lots of different companies, and lots of Android phones and tablets from lots of different companies. In the Apple world, everything comes from one company, which tries to control everything.

THAT AD IS THE BEST AD EVER. IT DIDNT EVEN SHOWED THE PRODUCT, AND IT HAUNTS EVERYONE TO THIS DATE AS IT FORETOLD OUR SLAVERY TO BIG BROTHER.

Spoiler Alert! Turns out Big Brother was the computer/internet. Have you taken a walk lately while looking anywhere but into that tiny, glowing screen in your hand, and bluetooth or hardwired earplugs feeding you 'information'? You're ALL slaves to the machine.

it was inspired by the book 1984 which foretold this, not apple :)
Goytá F. Villela Jr. (3 years ago)
It was not just IBM and not just in the late 1970s. In 1986-87, I worked for a large data processing company and they put even the smallest systems on mainframes, saying exactly that: "PCs are too small to do serious computing." And they added: "they're for playing games, not to do serious work." Now, just for a start, only one of the hard disks on my PC has more storage than the entire company (which employed hundreds of IT professionals) had at that time...

Because is shit. You can say that Win had fails, shit privacy, bad security, yada yada, but all of those problems can be fixedd even if you're not a computer especialist. And then, the system is very easy to use for anyone..And that's the point. Linux is stupidly complicated to use if you don't have experience, and it has some pretensious shit that make it a pain in the ass just to get a fucking video card or something...And forget about good gaming or anything. You can say any shit about Win an MS in general, and maybe is all true, but at the end, is the only system that the majority of the world population can manage without problem. Mac is a expensive piece of shit made by (and for) hipster with money to expend. Linux is for nerds and virgins. But eventually a real man like me (?) can use it for some other shits, but that's all. I allways get back to Win, like everyone else.
Pankaj Ahuja (2 years ago)
That's it pretty much. Linux is our only hope but there's not enough of people backing it.

how ironic.  Steve later built the monster that he likened IBM to, the ones who are planning to engulf the information age!  Nothing open and free about the ecosystem that Steve built.  It wasn't really about the user, it was all about Steve!

Laudable intent, if not a little naive, as Apple today create the most easily monitoring devices to locate and control the unwitting masses.. Can't remove the battery, can't exchange the memory.. Welcome to 1984.. Oh the sad irony

+bigmack0033 Steve Jobs has more movies and books about him than Woz. Way more. Jobs had the capability to lead and direct people way better than Woz and that's what's needed to run the company, if it weren't for Jobs Woz would just be some fat neckbeard playing with metal in his garage. Go cry about it somewhere else.

Ok. I am so envious of my brother’s best friend these days. He has been single endlessly. By some fluke, he’s got a model to deeply love him in weeks. How is that achievable? He smiled and told me he tried the Cupid Love System (Google it!) I wish someone attractive told me that… I cannot remember at any time seeing him so fulfilled. Sort of makes me frustrated.

I'm so envious because I wish to fall madly in love too. I'm gonna take a peek at this Jake Ayres guy's stuff to determine if it will help a person like me. Crazy thing is, my friend used to have no results with girls. How can you change so rapidly? His girl's like a model...
TheLAKERSareGodsTeam (5 years ago)
Adopt Linux/Android. Adopt a dog? heh. You can avoid human companionship, you can't avoid technology. The only way for mankind to survive is for MEN to lead, and mankind to take command of tech. If we fail this, Cupertino will consolidate it's power, it's investors demand it.... more than that, it is required by law. The irony is not coincidence. Jobs at least had a human conscience and the influence to alter fiduciary mandate. His corporation, and it's shareholders, do not.

Umm, you do realize that Google's entire business is based on collecting as much personal information about you as possible, right? It's literally how their business works. Android exists to collect data on your habits so they can sell more (and more targeted) ads. Whatever you think of "cults" and popularity, it's silly to act like Apple is more like Big Brother than Google. Apple's business is stuff. Google's business is personal information.

I noticed in THIS clip I could hear the "Hitler" dude on the screen BETTER than the actual copy that has been circulated online! The sound & background horn, or whatever it was, was so PRONOUNCE that I couldn't hear the damned WORDS of the "Hitler" at some points! I had no idea that Steve Jobs started off first by citing the MISTAKES and lack of vision that an entrenched entity like IBM, had made!!! It's common in ever changing businesses for big titans to die out like dinosaurs!
