Quote of the Day: Macintosh to Apple Shareholders, 24 January 1984

A Macintosh speaks for the first time!

At the annual Apple Stockholders’ Meeting, 24 January 1984, Flint Auditorium, De Anza Community College:

“Hello, I’m Macintosh. It sure is great to get out of that bag. Unaccustomed as I am to public speaking, I’d like to share with you a maxim I thought of the first time I met an IBM mainframe: Never trust a computer you can’t lift.”

Steve Jobs, by Walter Isaacson, Chapter Fifteen: The Launch
