An old Apple spoof of Ghostbusters, in which they go after (who else?) IBM.

Woz at 2:21, Jobs at 3:00 and 4:04

Steve Jobs playing FDR in an in-house Apple takeoff on the "1984" ad, called "1944" (A NEW VIDEO I GUARANTEE YOU'VE NEVER SEEN IN FULL BEFORE TODAY)

Entitled “1944,” the almost 9-minute full version was Apple’s in-house takeoff on "1984," the iconic first Macintosh TV ad that caused a sensation during that year’s Super Bowl. Set as a World War II tale of good vs. IBM, it is a broadcast-quality production (said to have cost $50,000) that was designed to fire up Apple’s international sales force at a 1984 meeting in Hawaii. A copy of “1944” was provided to me by one-time Apple employee Craig Elliott, now CEO of Pertino Networks, a cloud-computing startup located two blocks from Apple in Cupertino.

Elliott, who worked at Apple from 1985 to 1996, says he has “never seen (the film) anywhere else” and that there has been “no additional circulation” as far as he knows. I couldn’t find it online, either - the year 1984 was pre-World Wide Web, of course — which doesn’t mean it isn’t out there. Two snippets from “1944,” without any dialogue, do appear in another Jobs video - a photo-montage tribute to him made by Apple employees to mark his 30th birthday. After Jobs died last October, Elliott posted that birthday video to his Facebook page, from where it went viral before being knocked off the ‘Net by Sony Music Entertainment because it used a Bob Dylan song.

Ahhhhhhhhhh omg yes yes yes! I was wondering where the clip at the very end of this video came from!

This video was shown at Steve’s 30th birthday party.

Honestly, the last shot at the end is worth watching the whole video, but there are some great photos and clips of Steve in it that I think everyone should see.

Set to the sounds of Bob Dylan, of course, Steve’s favorite.

From the Jeffrey Aaronson article <3

I get asked a lot why Apple’s customers are so loyal. It’s not because they belong to the Church of Mac! That’s ridiculous.Steve Jobs

We thought about whether we should do a music client for Android. We put iTunes on Windows in order to sell more iPods. But I don’t see an advantage of putting our own music app on Android, except to make Android users happy. And I don’t want to make Android users happySteve Jobs, as quoted in Walter Isaacson’s Steve Jobs

Apple has posted video from their celebration of Steve Jobs' life

The thing is, you can only see the video (at least for now) if you are on a Mac, iPhone, or iPad. And on top of that, you also have to be using Safari. Boooo :P 

The link in the title will take you directly to the site, so if you’re wearing Safari on an Apple product that should work just fine for you. If you are on Windows, however, or Linux, or whatever, you could try clicking this and then opening up that file in VLC, it should stream it. It’s very choppy on my PC though so I figure I’ll just watch it on my iPad instead.

I’m so excited to watch it though <3
