In 1984, during Super Bowl XVIII, Apple released its first notable commercial announcing itself to the world. The ad featured a dystopian totalitarian “Big Brother” figure on a video speaking to indoctrinated followers.
A young woman break though runs down the aisle with a sledgehammer to break the connection, thus freeing them and their minds.
It ends with:
“On January 24th, Apple Computer will introduce Macintosh. And you’ll see why 1984 won’t be like “1984”.
Sadly, on January 24th, 2021; Apple has become the very tyrannical evil they set out to fight. They are no longer the women with the sledgehammer but have become the man on the screen who control the audience.
Apple has become the authoritarian monster they initially fought. They are Orwell’s Pigs living in the people’s house.0
