    Man, I love the 1984 year. The music was better, people were less greedy, technology was simple, electronics lasted longer, and Steve Jobs looked more handsome. I hate the times today. :mad:

    I was born in '84. I wish I had one of those to commemorate my entrance into the world.

    That is a great clip.

    I swear Steve creamed his pants when the Mac spoke. Maybe Stephen Hawking would too since it had a better voice then than he does now.

    Oh, and how did Steve fit in his job at Apple with his other life in Spandau Ballet? :D

    Mee, too! The 128 was my first Mac. A nifty piece of shareware was "The Talking Moose" that would put most speech synthesizers to shame, considering the year it was developed. Type in, and hear what you typed. Also had a built-in backgammon game that kept us going for hours. Took one apart, worked the mother board, adjusted the firmware, and made a burst mode link analyzer for satellite download.
    Cool! Thanks for the memories!
