Thirty years ago, January 22, 1984 -

Posted on 01/22/2014 1:10:47 PM PST by gasport

Today, we celebrate the first glorious anniversary of the Information Purification Directives. We have created, for the first time in all history, a garden of pure ideology—where each worker may bloom, secure from the pests purveying contradictory truths. Our Unification of Thoughts is more powerful a weapon than any fleet or army on earth. We are one people, with one will, one resolve, one cause. Our enemies shall talk themselves to death, and we will bury them with their own confusion. We shall prevail!

30 years ago that was just an interesting ad.

Now I dont even want to look at it. Reminds me too much of MSNBC.

I remember that commercial. BTW, I remember when I was a junior in high school, we did play with a MacIntosh in December of 1983. I remember it like yesterday.

A sad note, 2014 is more like "1984" than 1984. I really miss the 1980's. B-(

Bullet proof and trouble free.
Get the extra capacity and all the MS for iMac programs. You'll recognize them in a bar across the bottom of the screen.

Sign up for a year of Applecare, which provides a toll free expert if you get stuck on the MS-iMac differences.

I especially like the iphoto system. Head and shoulders over other photo programs. Quicker too.

I hear that a lot. My old HP running Windows XP is gettin’ a bit tired but so am I, and a little sceptical about making the switch. Thanks for the tip.

Cheers,
Otter
