To Orwell Today,

Check out: Superbowl 1984 Ad: Apple Macintosh, Video Bomb


Greetings Gene,

How coincidental that I read your email just after I answered a question about how "1984" prophecies relate to the 1980s. I recalled that it was in the 80s that Apple computers started replacing typewriters in offices thus further introducing "telescreens" into our lives.

Watching that video you just sent reinforces my remembrance of that first experience with computers, although I never did see that ad. Even if I'd seen it then I wouldn't have understood the Orwellian connotations, as I do now. Thanks for sending it along.

All the best,
Jackie Jura
