Snag Films And Welcome To Macintosh: A Look Back At The Making Of A Cult


With YouTube, Vimeo and other video sites seemingly sprouting up like weeds all over the web these days, one of my favorites sites has just got to be Snag Films.


Snag is great because it allows you to watch movies that are more than just mere clips, and ones that are more than just a few minutes in length. Yes, now thanks to Snag you can watch entire short and full-length movies right on your own desktop, and on your own time schedule, and all for the fabulously low, low price of absolutely FREE!


As a Mac user, and one who is interested in the history of computers, then I think that one of the best films out there ever has just got to be Josh Rizzo and Rob Bac's, "Welcome To Macintosh", a film about the Mac and the community that loyally embraces it. This documentary wonderfully takes a look back at both the Mac's history and the cult-like atmosphere that has arisen around it, and one that is also growing, like all those video sites, by leaps and bounds.


You can read a great review of Welcome To Macintosh here, or you can always buy your very own DVD copy for about $20 here, but if your like little old me and your a little short on cash because your saving up for the latest and greatest new fangled Mac, then great news - you can now watch this great 1:22 minute long documentary, in its entirety, thanks to Snag, right here.


Well, in conclusion, I won't bother wasting any more of your precious time in order that you can go staight to Snag to watch this great documentary for yourself. I've really enjoyed this documentary and its wonderful look back at the little computer that could, and the little computer that changed the entire world, and the fiercely loyal, cult-like community that grew up around it, so enjoy!

Just watched "Welcome To Macintosh" on CNBC a little while ago. It really is a compelling story. It is interesting to see how different Apple was when Jobs left, and how it completely transformed when he came back.

Thanks El Di Pablo for your insight to just how different Apple was and became when Steve was either there or not. Regardless of people's perception of the man, no one can deny the impact he has made not only on Apple itself, but literally on the entire tech world as well.
