NewtVid: another Mac documentary on the way

September 25th, 2008

Welcome to Macintosh is another Apple-centric documentary, scheduled for a showing at this year’s Naperville Independent Film Festival, with a DVD release coming as soon as they find a distributor.

Looks to be promising, in the same vein (but without the overt quirkiness) as MacHeads. Can’t wait to see it!

[Thanks to Cult of Mac.]

NewtVid: Wireless Newton demo

June 3rd, 2008

I like how the creator uses the Newton to speak with the audience. Also a cool demo of the wifi capabilities of the MessagePad 2000 – complete with Apple sticker.

I’ll tackle the wifi project when I nab a 2100 sometime this summer, but in the meantime you can learn how to send a fax with your Newton.

NewtVid: Year-old Newton at MacWorld ’94

May 21st, 2008

Boy, that first guy, Stewart, reall is grumpy, isn’t he? By this time, PDA (or “palmtop” as the reporter says) technology was in the “Model T” stage, as Tim the Analyst says in the video.

Neat to see the Windows 3.1 desktop there, as well as real, live people actually working with the Newton. Talk about retro.

NewtVid: Newton stars in iPhone commercial

April 29th, 2008

Funny. I like how the Newton talks in the old Mac OS’s Mr. Roboto voice.

Nice dig at the Zune, too.

NewtVid: the Newton Virus

April 11th, 2008


I had my own bit of fun for April Fool’s Day, but this is a hoot: a “virus” that makes…well, just watch.

Love the name!

NewtVid: Tech Soup’s Apple logo proof

March 31st, 2008

The fun kids over at Tech Soup told me they ran an experiment to see if it’s true that Apple’s logo makes people more creative. Looks pretty convincing to me.

Thanks Alison!

NewtVid: Brief history of Newton technology

March 18th, 2008

“The thing we knew about this computer was that it would be pen-based…”

Cool, first-hand account of the early days of Newton development from Walter Smith and James Joaquin. There’s a part 2, too, that you can find in YouTube’s sidebar.

Love the vanilla, hotel-conference-room decorations.

NewtVid: Apple’s ‘Getting Started’ video

January 30th, 2008

There it is. The video that launched a green revolution. Well…not that green revolution. The earlier one.

Love the haircuts.

NewtVid: Retro iPhone?

January 23rd, 2008

This is hilarious. This guy got his iPhone all right – complete with handwriting recognition, calculator, and monochrome battery-saving mode. What a hoot.

NewtVid: iPod Touch-type Newton 2

January 5th, 2008

And there it is – the second coming of Newton, thanks to YouTube and someone’s slick animation skills.

I have to admit, the dock-like scrolling along the side is pretty cool. It’s like functional Cover Flow on the iPod Touch, but pragmatic, with some AppleTV/Front Row built in.

This was made by user ElysiumMedia07, who did a wonderful job putting the “Wow” in a Windows Vista parody ad.

Fun stuff!
