1984 Revised?

What would a Vlog devoted to all things Mac be with this classic spot from 1984. Groundbreaking at the time is was aired, it is still to this day regarded as one of the greatest commercials ever produced. Directed by Ridley Scott who later went on to direct Alien among other films, the spot takes a rather cynical view of Big Blue. Here's a very in depth article on the spot. Watch closely and you'll notice this isn't the same spot that aired during the Super Bowl in 1984 however. A hint: look for a certain mp3 player. 10 points for finding it the first time through.

The spot looks amazing even as we go into 2006. The I POD stands out clear as day even the first and only time I watched the spot. You can see the woman running with it 3 times...or more? I wonder how they knew then that the MP3 player would be the most popular, everyone-has-to-have-it-IPOD today? Talk about vision!!!
