"insanely great"
Posted by Gordon Smith

I have been reading Steve Jobs by Walter Isaacson, and tonight I covered the chapters creation of the Macintosh. Like many others who are reading the book, I ended up on YouTube, searching for the iconic "1984" Super Bowl commercial ...

More interesting to me, however, was the video of Jobs at the Apple annual meeting two days after the Super Bowl. The memory in the Macintosh was only 128k (plus 64k of ROM) and the graphics are primitive by modern standards, but look at the frenzied reaction of the audience!

That was an amazing product launch, which became the template for so many other insanely great Steve Jobs moments.
