Steve Jobs Intros The Apple Macintosh In 1984

Demo of the first Apple Macintosh by Steve Jobs, January 1984, in front of 3000 people.

Listen for the music!

Andy Hertzfeld captured the moment well in his retelling: “Pandemonium reigns as the demo completes. Steve has the biggest smile I’ve ever seen on his face, obviously holding back tears as he is overwhelmed by the moment. The ovation continues for at least five minutes before he quiets the crowd down.”

It’s strange to see how things have changed – and how Steve Jobs had already polished his presentations skills.
