World, Meet Mac. Mac, World. Here is the complete »Lost 1984« clip collection as a permanent download from this server for your convenience. You can also get'em from iTunes (scroll down to the bottom), also iPod-ready! image We've found these historical lost videos in 2004 and restored and published them to the world on January 24., 2005, when the Mac became 21 years old.


The news about our discovery was published simultaneously on c|net, Yahoo, Slashdot, metafilter, Heise, at Woz.org, Kottke as well as on every single Mac page in the universe (you just wouldn't believe what happened to our poor old server...:) Here's the complete story and background:
