On this day in 1984, the very first Macintosh computer, the precursor of today’s Apple computers or “Macs” as they are lovingly called, was introduced to the consumer market.

Super Bowl Commercial

The computer was first introduced to the world at the Super Bowl commercial directed by Ridley Scott. The commercial referred to George Orwell’s Nineteen Eighty-four, a dystopian novel published in 1949. When introduced, the computer came with only two programs - MacWrite and MacPaint.

How to Celebrate?
