Totally Off Topic and Most Likley Irrelevant - It's All About " 1984 "

Dear Everyone;

On todays date Jan. 24,1984 an advertising event took place during the SuperBowl which introduced the Apple Macintosh in what is now considered a classic best ad ever. If you haven't seen it recently here's a click through to see the ad. It may take a little time to download but the wait is worth it. My My My how time flies.

Most interesting is the dialogue from the ad: Hmmm - now where have I heard that speech recently???

Text of "1984"
Today, we celebrate the first glorious anniversary of the Information Purification Directives. We have created, for the first time in all history, a garden of pure ideology. Where each worker may bloom secure from the pests of contradictory and confusing truths. Our Unification of Thoughts is more powerful a weapon than any fleet or army on earth. We are one people, with one will, one resolve, one cause. Our enemies shall talk themselves to death and we will bury them with their own confusion. We shall prevail!

It runs on Apple QuickTime which is free to download if you don't have it.
