And yes, we do think different now.

I mean, what can I say about this, really?  I remember this day because I remember
this ad but if someone had told me that less than 30 years later we would be looking 
at a company, a technology, a man - that would change the way we communicate,
design, listen to music, reinvent how we sold music, make a phone call, use a cell 
phone, interact with a computer screen, etc., I would have thought they were crazy.

The ad itself was revolutionary, the full one minute ad that cost almost one million dollars
to produce was played during the Superbowl!  How indicative of a company that urged us
to... “Think Different”... and would later roll out MacPublisher and OS X.

On this day in 1984 Apple introduced the Macintosh, the first computer that used a mouse
and a graphical interface.  The rest, as we like to say, is history.

The Historical Inebriant:  Any drink you would like.
  (what, did you expect me to say Apple Martini or something?)


  1. Wow...you do a piece on Apple and the next day it's bigger than Exxon!!
