Well its the 24th of January (Atleast it is here in Manchester in the UK) and its 22 years since the Mac was launched this faithful day in 1984 in the Moscone Center in SF.

And I would like to wish the Mac, Happy Birthday and hopefully it'll be around for atleast another 22 years!

And for nostalgia, I've been watching the original 1984 ad, http://www.uriah.com/apple-qt/movies/Apple.1984.mov .

Happy Birthday!

Should we move this to the Perpetual B-Day thread?

Or just pick out an appropriate Cake
