    I just finished watching the documentary, Welcome to Macintosh: The Documentary for the Rest of Us
    (2008) Written and directed by filmmakers Robert Baca and Josh Rizzo

    Very interesting with lots of personal tidbits about the rise of Apple and how much of what we love and enjoy came to be. Just curious if any of you have seen it and what you thought of it.

    Another good one is "Pirates of Silicon Valley". Talks about the history of Apple and MS.

    Jobs shunning Gates as a computer fair back in the day sets it all up for the modern Apple/MS rivalry.

    I watched it on Netflix... the "watch instantly" genre.

    Anyone with an interest in a MacBook, iBook or anything Mac may have an interest in learning a bit about the history of how it all came into being. I like knowing how something came about just as much as how it works or how to make it work better. I don't think I'm alone there.

    Cool, I love documentaries. I'll have to check this out.

    And yes, Pirate of Silicon Valley is pretty great.
