Welcome to Macintosh Documentary Movie, Now Screening on Your Mac (or pc)
“Welcome to Macintosh,” a highly praised 2008 documentary film on Apple computers / Mac / Macintosh, is now available to watch for free on your Mac or PC courtesy of SnagFilms.
The official word: “‘Welcome to Macintosh’ is the first documentary of its kind to mix history, criticism and an unapologetic revelry of all things Apple into a movie experience.”
The film traces history of Apple computers from the Apple-1 to the iPhone through interviews and historical videos.
Although neither Apple co-founder Steve Jobs nor Steve Woz were interviewed, some original Macintosh insiders were interviewed:
- Andy Hertzfeld, member of the original Apple Macintosh development team
- Guy Kawasaki, Silicon Valley venture capitalist, originally one of the Apple employees responsible for marketing the Macintosh in 1984
- Jim Reekes, creator of Mac Startup Sound & Beatles inspired SoSuMi legend, was an Apple programmer who also made significant contribution to System 7 and Quicktime
Young Steve Jobs, Apple CEO, also appears in the film as part of historical footage.
Welcome to Macintosh: Steve Woz Praise
Even though Apple co-founder Steve Woz is not interviewed for the film, Woz spoke highly of the 2008 documentary: “The movie is so much on the mark… I’ve been involved in some other independent films, and this one is by far the best one I’ve seen.”
