If you haven’t seen the video of Steve Jobs launching the Macintosh in 1984 then all I can say is shame on you! However it actually turns out there is another video of the launch of the Macintosh, see a week after the original launch there was a second demo presented to members of the  Boston Computer Society and the general public.

Harry McCracken was rummaging through his garage when he uncovered this video from the launch of the Macintosh, what’s amazing is that this video has been tucked away in storage since 1984 and hasn’t been seen since then.

What’s interesting is the fact that Steve Jobs compares the invention of the Mac to that of the telephone. If you want to see just this bit then start the movie at around 37:40.

Another very interesting part of this “new” video is the fact that it contains a Q&A session with the guys who were on the original Mac team.
