1984 – The famous ad of Apple’s Macintosh

in: Ideas and Thoughts,Technology

applelogo.JPGEverybody knows Apple, I am not talking about the fruit. It’s time to discuss the Apple, one of the world’s largest consumer electronics and software products company. Apple develops, sells, and supports a series of personal computers, portable media players, mobile phones, computer software, and computer hardware and hardware accessories. Famous Apple hardware products are Macintosh personal computers, the iPod music players, and the iPhone. Some of the Apple’s software are the Mac OS X operating system, the iLife suite of multimedia and creativity software, and Final Cut Studio, a suite of professional audio- and film-industry software products.

Today, I have seen one 23 years old Macintosh ad on YouTube. It is a television commercial launched by Apple Computer in 1984 to promote the Macintosh personal computer in the United States. The commercial was influenced by the book Nineteen Eighty-Four by George Orwell. The ad showed Anya Major wearing red shorts, red running shoes, and a white tank top with a Picasso-style picture of Apple’s Macintosh computer, running through an Orwellian world to throw a sledgehammer at a TV image of Big Brother (representation of IBM). It was followed by an on-screen message, “On January 24th, Apple Computer will introduce Macintosh. And you’ll see why 1984 won’t be like 1984.”

Watch out this T.V commercial.
