Welcome to Macintosh Airing Tonight on CNBC
Monday, January 4, 2010
Posted by: Glenn

The documentary Welcome to Macintosh will be making its worldwide television premiere tonight on CNBC at 9:30 PM. It runs approximately 90-minutes long, exploring the many ways Apple has changed the world with their products.

Welcome to Macintosh is the Apple story told by people who build, use, love, hate, and obsess over the company's revolutionary products. When Steve Jobs and Steve Wozniak launched Apple Computers in 1977, they had no idea the impact their company would have on the world. Now, more than thirty years later, filmmakers Robert Baca and Josh Rizzo take an in dept look how Apple has created a cult fan base and how Steve Jobs has become a modern day hero.

The documentary will be repeated on CNBC this Friday at 12:00 AM if you miss it tonight. All times listed are Eastern Standard Time.

At least you have control of your DVR Bandit. I'm basically not allowed to touch mine anymore because it's filled with soap operas and Phineas and Ferb. Smile

Is that the one where Steve Jobs is on the beach at the end, looking at the Statue of Liberty, and saying damn you all to hell? Wink

I thought that was Ballmer and Liberty was symbolic of the crumbling M$ empire. Hmmm, now I'm confused.

I guess I'll have to watch. Hopefully it will all make sense.

You know, that way around probably makes more sense. He could also be like that guy at the end of Trading Places yelling to turn those machines back on. Only this time he will be yelling Window Mobile!

I like the "Realist" in this movie. He seems like our kinda guy Bandit. Laughing
