Found the ads which aired in 2002 in the United States. I cant remember if they ever aired here.

They are ads with Will Ferrel, and he states he is a
Porn Actor at the end of each ad.

As you can imagine, as seasoned Macheads, we've definitely covered this territory before, but I do take my hat off to you, my search of previous posts also could not uncover it specifically (other than iPod Ads from last year).

If you want to get a whole host of Apple ads, try this site (http://www.esm.psu.edu/Faculty/Gray/movies.html).

I've got nearly 2GB of ads sitting on my hard drive. Great stuff.

I have 3.5 gb of Apple Video Material here. (ads and stevenotes) :)

Personally I didn't like the switch ads :P

Philip - I've always wondered how it is possible to download/save the few Stevenotes that are still available online - any advice?

Would love to see again (and see for the first time) some classic ones like:

- Introduction of the Power Mac G5
- Introduction of the 12" and 17" Powerbooks
- Introduction of the iMac G4
- Introduction of the iPod
- Introduction of the original iMac
- Introduction of the original Macintosh

Ah, if only Apple sold DVDs full of Stevenotes - lol, I just realised how sad that sounds! B)

Different District has announced the immediate availability of a DVD that includes all of the original Macintosh ads, from before 1984, to the present time."For only $9 users can purchase the DVD, and own not only a piece of Mac history, but a video tour through all 20 years of Macintosh." The disc includes over 270 of the greatest Apple ads, 5 keynote presentations, and takes users on a advertising tour from before the Macintosh started, in the early days of the Apple, all the way to the most recent iPod ads.

Scrolll to the bottom left and choose switch ads. Hers is sooo funny! :lol: Ah its great. A classic Apple moment.

OziMac
10th November 2004, 06:42 AM
:D lol Ozi, I love that ad - poor girl, she was so young and naive. And she seemed to be pretty honestly a real Mac switcher/fanatic, so it's a shame if the whole web whirlwind kind of changed her mind. But hilarious, I can watch that ad over and over and over and not get bored.

Yep, that's one pretty impressive site zefi - good to see it all collated so nicely! Will have to go back for more later, but thanks from me too! :)

Is there anyone else here who wants one of the DVDs but doesn't have a credit card?

I can buy a few copies and you can give me the cash or depositing money into my bank account before I buy it (my credit card limit is already pretty maxed out) and I'll mail it to you.

It will cost you more than the US$9 though like this:

AUS$12 for the actual DVD.
$1 for currency conversion on my credit card/PayPal fee
$5 for post anywhere in Australia.

So it totals up to $18.

Anyone that wants in, send me an e-mail to anthony.agius@internode.on.net with the subject: Apple DVD, with your shipping address and I'll reply back with my bank details so you can deposit the money in there. If you're in Melbourne and prefer to pick it up from me and pay cash, just tell me that and you don't need to pay the shipping fee making it only $12 :)

I'll set a deadline of 5PM (Melbourne time) Thursday for orders. Maybe if there are enough people after that who want a copy, I can do another order.

So yeah, anyone that wants one, e-mail me - anthony.agius@internode.on.net :)

whoa Ellen Feiss switched back?

You are kidding me. I know that the mac community got a little fanatical about her and made her the poster girl of the switchers.... but who wants to go back to windows?

Its like an abusive relationship - completely unhealthy. At least you get worshipped by nerds on the mac platform :P

Edit:// Also thank you for the nice offer decryption. I would take you up, but I have no money at the moment. Just ordered a new iBook, tehehehe :)

I think I've perpetuated a small misinterpretation - I don't think Ellen Feiss has unswitched - but I do think the poor girl has probably had a pretty unpleasant time becoming such a figure of mirth, mockery and idolatry for a a bunch of web geeks.

That&#39;d be upsetting for anybody, especially for someone her age. Not everyone wants to be a fanboy&#39;s wet dream <_<


Thanks for those links Philip&#33; :)

I&#39;ll confess that I&#39;m with you on that too Zefi.

The whole thing about the chunky, blocky 1g iPod hooking up to the G3 iceBook while flashing the firewire symbol has a certain charm - as does the song and the dance. Love it ;)

11th November 2004, 07:43 AM
i have a heap of various keynote dating back to 1998.
off the top of my head.

Oh too late. :( I already ordered. Didnt realise that i could just download it off the web. So sad.

Actually i am looking at the old powerbooks. hehehe they are funny. Didn&#39;t know that they look so shite. I can&#39;t believe I have a 520c :P

iSlayer
11th November 2004, 12:18 PM
if there is enough interest id be willing to either make up a dvd to send out to people here or maybe share some with bittorrent.
because the quailty and frame size are different for heaps oif the videos the wont look great on dvd but i guess its the same with the differentdistrict dvd.

i wont charge for the dvd.
it will be totally free for members of this site.

Phillip
11th November 2004, 04:58 PM
Islayer, that would be great. I am VERY interested in old keynotes such as 2003 mwsf, 2002 mwsf, and 2001 mwsf.

iSlayer
11th November 2004, 05:39 PM
i can eaither do a data dvd or a video dvd.
for a video dvd there are 2 options
1 is to make the video bigger to fill the screen resulting in awful quality full screen video
2 is to center each video and have a black border round them

let me know what you prefer

Phillip
11th November 2004, 07:03 PM
I think the data DVD is much better cause then we can all burn it to dvd video if that what we like or for the people who don&#39;t want that, they can stick to the files.

I just view them on the computer.

ajs
11th November 2004, 07:49 PM
Gee islayer - that&#39;s a nice offer. :) If it is not too much trouble I&#39;d love to have a data DVD with the keynotes on it for the same reasons as stated by Phillip.

I spent ages today downloading some of those old ads that this thread pointed me to - loved seeing Kevin Costner doing the Lisa ad in 1983.

btw - does anybody know where we can find that 80s Australian Apple ad of the two guys in an elevator talking about a business report? The one where one businessman looks over the report and says, "I didn&#39;t know our computers could do this." To which the other guy replies, "They can&#39;t - I did it at home." The other businessman then asks something along the lines of "with what" and then the elevator bell rings and the other business man exits, leaving the first guy asking "Frank, what computer did you use?" :P ... cue rainbow Apple logo.

If anybody remembers the Twelfth Man there is a parody of this ad on one of his early releases ... or maybe it was his Wired World of Sports debut.

11th November 2004, 10:20 PM
Phillip Thanks for providing that link. :) That&#39;s the essence of it - but this was not the ad that screened in Australia. Our ad was two guys in an elevator, iirc. And I don&#39;t think it had the banter at the beginning re: the rivalry.

I recall something along the lines of "Missed you at the shindig the other night." "I was busy" "How&#39;s that report going for Monday?" "It&#39;s finished" "Really - can I have a look?" and then it pretty much followed the ad you linked to ... must have got an outside team, revenue projections, did it ourselves on computer, etc etc.

Kreats
12th November 2004, 01:17 AM
I&#39;d be interested in a data dvd also&#33;

i use princo disks which some older cd drives wont read.
ive had problems in an orignal dvd-rom drive in a g4 400 tower but work fine in a g4 400 powerbook dvd-rom drive.
if anyone has problems with the disks i will make you a special one on another brand of disk

islayer, I would greatly appreciate this dvd (data dvd preferred) as well. It&#39;s a wonderful offer/gesture.

The apple ads are kind of inspirational for me, coming from someone who&#39;s wanted for build a large company from the ground up for as long as I can remember.

12th November 2004, 07:11 AM

12th November 2004, 11:06 AM
islayer when you made that comment that two people wanted the DVD - there were actually three people who had expressed interest at that stage. So, if my name is not on that list, could you please add it? (alternately the missing name might be Kreats or Phillip)

It might also be a good idea to keep a list of the people who are signing up for the DVD as a post in this thread and edit it as people request a copy - just a suggestion. :)

iSlayer
12th November 2004, 11:09 AM
i will create a list when i get home
onmly the first 20 will be free as i cannot offer it forever.
postage will be a few &#036; for each so i cant afford to offer heaps more for free.
20 free
rest will pay for a disc + postage

iSlayer
12th November 2004, 11:07 PM
yep you are down

just an update for everyone.
im currently downloading some more keynotes and a few other various launches.
problem is i will have well over 4gb of video.
i will give people th option of chosing what videos will be on the disc
i can do a disc with just ads and a few keynotes or i can try and squeeze all the keynotes onto one disc
im happy to do a 2 disc set for anyone but i cannot afford to do it for free as its costing me 75c a disk and postage is aroun &#036;3-4 for each one.
anyone who wants these will have to give &#036;5 to cover costs

i will still give the first 20 free as i have said but after that i cant afford to.
the first 20 will cost around &#036;80 which is comming out of my pocket

the princo discs i have are printable so if anyone wants i can have a friend print labels on to them for &#036;1 per disc or i can leave them blank if you want to print labels youselves

adamjc
12th November 2004, 11:10 PM
I dont need a dvd, but I dont understand why your giving the dvds for free, and taking &#036;80 out of your own pocket. I mean sure, it is a good thing your doing, and many people would appreciate it. But I dont think there are many people who would be willing to do the same&#33; :(


-Adam

iSlayer
12th November 2004, 11:15 PM
and anyone who is going to the appletalk lan please let me know as i can send a batch to one of you to give out to save on postage costs
adamjc i have no idea why im doing it either.im already broke :( maybe i should atleast get ppl to cover postage for thier dvd

i have had one person offer &#036;10 to help with costs and anyone else who wants to throw in some cash let me know

adamjc
12th November 2004, 11:18 PM
Yeah i didnt mean to sound pessimistic or anything, but it could cost you up to &#036;100 if your not careful.

I think your being too generous. Mayby get people to pay for postage&#33; Mayby by a Cash On Delivery scheme with Australia Post (I dont think you pay for this)...someone correct if im wrong. :)


-Adam

iSlayer
12th November 2004, 11:23 PM
i think your probably right.it seemed like a good idea .
i am now asking for everyone to cover postage.it should only be &#036;3-5 per dvd.
ive got alot of people who have said they wanted one either in this thread or via email so costs are starting to get high

hopefully everyone undstand this and is cool with it
if there is a particular video you want send me a pm and i can share it with bittorrent.

if you are not happy to pay for postage let me know and i will remove you name from the list

adamjc
12th November 2004, 11:27 PM
Ok now you gotta figure out a payment system.

Just thought of something to. I dont know if your in Melbourne or not islayer, but how about you take several copies to the Melbourne Lan gathering (if you were planning on going) happening on the 11th. You can give them out there instead of worrying about postage (for those based in Melbourne).

iSlayer
12th November 2004, 11:30 PM
nope im in hobart
payment will be via direct deposit into my bank account via internet banking or you can send a money order
for those based in melbourne who are going to the lan i can send all your dvd&#39;s in 1 package to cut down on costs a bit
i dont want to have to be doing batches of these so i ill wait say a week until everyone has had a chance to decide if they want one and i will do one batch
a second batch will only be done if there is enough interest

adamjc
12th November 2004, 11:40 PM
Good thinking islayer.

Works out better for everyone this way.

Sorry to those who were going to get a free dvd, but i dont think it was really all that fair for islayer to fork out the money for everyone elses dvds.:blink:


-Adam.

Phillip
12th November 2004, 11:55 PM
I will be fine with paying :) Felt kinda bad if you really had to take &#036;80 outta you pocket when we can all pay for it. By paying for it we can appreciate it even more :) I just want some old keynotes :P

BTW it costs about &#036;2 to send a DVD. (&#036;1 for the box to post it in, and &#036;1 for the postage) Plus &#036;1 for the DVD. = &#036;3. You only need to send one to the LAN in Melbourne cause everyone can just copy it off each other.

ajs
13th November 2004, 12:09 AM
Hi islayer - I&#39;m happy to pay for it as well.

On the other hand sending a big batch (or one DVD) across to the LAN meeting is sensible - only thing is, I won&#39;t actually be going to it. However, if somebody from Melbourne is going and would be able to pick up a copy for me, I&#39;ll happily meet up with you at some stage and buy you a beer ... or whatever you prefer. :)

Kreats
13th November 2004, 12:18 AM
I&#39;m happy to pay &#036;5 for the two DVD&#39;s - I can&#39;t make the lan cause I&#39;m already booked in for another lan which is on at the exact same time :/ Annoying cause it&#39;s just up the road really.

Yeah I&#39;m more after the keynotes and talks than the old commericals - but whatever is easier to cram on the DVD&#39;s :)

iSlayer
3rd December 2004, 01:21 PM
ok 2 confirmed.
im going to ask all the other people to re-confirm as some said yes before i bought in the costs.

if you want them send me a pm so i can easily keep track.
put the subject as "Apple DVD" and either put -1 or -2 on the end to specify if you dont want both.
-1 means ads only
-2 means both
if you just want keynots send me a pm with the subject as "Apple Keynote DVD"

Thanks Guys
