A Bit of History Trivia

Well, I was thinking of continuing my posts on our economic crisis as John Thain, has splattered across the news. But then I would be needlessly repeating myself about our failed corporate leadership. So onto more enjoyable fun news.

Back in 1984, Apple ran it's now famous add for the Macintosh computer at the Super Bowl. In celebration of its 25th anniversary, CNBS has a short video on the history of that ad and a discussion of how the ad came to be here. It almost didn't run. Another version here "The 25th Anniversary Of Apple's "1984"" Still an excellent ad.

Actually, I find that ad very prophetic. Orwell's "1984" society did emerge in 1984.
