Remembering 1984 With An Original Mac Magazine Article (With Pics)
by , 11:00 AM EST, February 9th, 2001
After exploring Apple's past with a few articles for its legacy ads, what about the very beginnings of the Macintosh itself? It would be impossible to compile all the articles written about the computer platform since its first day. Since this is not doable, why don't we look at one of the first, then?
Tim Mityok, president of Public Access Software, has sent us a gem. The Computers & Electronics magazine dedicated its March 1984 cover, along with two articles for 7 pages of content, to the first born of the platform that you happily use today. The writer in question, Vanessa Schnatmeier, did a good job at describing the Mac technically and what it stands for. Hear this quote: "a computer that could be used by all, even the computer-naive." Indeed!
We would like to thank Tim Mityok and Public Access Software for sending us these great scans. If you have an old Apple ad, a Mac (or Apple ][) clone maker ad, magazine cover or article, or some other cool piece of old Apple stuff, scan it and send it to us so we can share it with other Mac fans.
