Celebrating Apple Macintosh's introduction 30 years back, a video has been unearthed showing Steve Jobs' first public demonstration of the iconic computer

The video shows the meeting, in which Jobs introduced the Macintosh to the public for the first time, after unveiling it to its shareholders on January 24, 1984

According to Cnet, the video dated January 30, 1984, shows the meeting held at the Boston Computer Society and includes an interesting way in which queries were answered post the introduction

As the audience is filled with actual users and seemingly some of the era's top nerds, it is interesting to see the Macintosh team interacting with them one-on-one on queries on everything from the system hardware to the justification of text in MacWrite, something inconceivable to imagine Apple executives doing today, the report said.
