The Macintosh is now 30 years old. And with it, specifically through this ad which compared 1984 to the Orwell nightmarish dystopian future, came the legend, the selling line "On January 24th, Apple Computer will introduce Macintosh. And you'll see why 1984 won't be like "1984"".
Naturally, the NSA was not on the menu back then. Because now, 2014 IS like 1984.
