Apple debuts the Macintosh personal computer. It is hyped with a dark, stylized commercial in which a lone "heroine" takes on "Big Brother" characters that are reminiscent of those in George Orwell's novel "1984" -- a metaphor for IBM. Directed by "Alien" and "Blade Runner" filmmaker Ridley Scott, the ad airs just once nationally, during the Super Bowl. (Photo: Wikimedia)
