Watch Steve Jobs The Master Showman Reveal The Mac To The Public In Rare Footage [Video]

On January 24, 1984, Steve Jobs unveiled the Mac, a personal computer which changed the world. You’d expect Steve Jobs to have his customary swagger as he unveiled the computer which would change everything: in fact, he seemed kind of nervous. He was, after all, still basically a kid.

In this recently discovered footage of Jobs’ second time showing off the Mac — this time in front of the Boston Computer Society six days later, on January 30, 1984 — things are different. Jobs seems like just as much of a showman as he did when he unveiled the iPhone. It’s impressive stuff, and a fitting way to remember the man on the 30th anniversary of the most famous PC ever.
