The Lost Tape

Mac user Scott Knaster kept this Betamax video tape of the Macintosh launch in 1984 for 21 years. Here is the Quicktime version.

Hello, I am Macintosh.

It sure is great to get out of that bag. As unaccustomed as I am to public speaking, I'd like to share with you a maxim I thought of the first time I met an IBM mainframe: Never trust a computer you can't lift.

Obviously I can talk, but right now I'd like sit back and listen. So it is with considerable pride that I introduce a man who's been like a father to me, Steve Jobs.
