January 24, 2009 This day 25 years ago, the Apple Macintosh Personal Computer went on sale. Two days prior, during Super Bowl XVIII, Apple aired its 1984 television commercial produced by Ridley Scott, creating massive public interest in the new product. It was the first commercially successful personal computer to feature a mouse and a graphical user interface rather than a command line interface. That’s the original Mac advert at right. Get well Steve!
