The First Example of the Reality Distortion Field

If you have ever been a Mac fan, you've heard of the famous Steve Jobs "reality distortion field." He speaks, and it becomes...overwhelming. Having been privvy to it many times, as well as having seen what it takes to build up to it (yes, Steve even fired me, even though I did not work for him :-)), it's even more impressive to see how well he pulls it off.

Have a look at the very first example: the introduction of the original Mac in 1984, over 22 years ago. Wacth the crowd. Remember: this was a tiem that the personal computer was barely understood as a concept, and Atari video games ruled the world on the TV. Then...this.
