The Computer History Museum recently released a never-before-seen video of Steve Jobs unveiling the Macintosh to the public in 1984. The January 30 presentation at the Boston Computer Society was notable for being the first public showing of the Mac and the first example of a “Stevenote,” Jobs’ much anticipated keynote speech in which he would introduce Apple’s next big thing. The Boston presentation was not Jobs’ first go at the speech—on January 24, 1984 he unveiled the Mac to Apple shareholders at the company’s annual meeting. For more on the Boston speech see this TIME post.
