Rare images surface in a home movie made by his Apple co-workers in 1985
Alerted of its existence by some early Apple (AAPL) employees, Technologizer's Harry McCracken has unearthed a five-minute home movie made by Steve Jobs' co-workers on the occasion of his 30th birthday: Feb. 24, 1985.
The video is a time-capsule from an era when IBM was enemy No. 1 and John Sculley was still his friend. It's filled with images I'd never seen before, including Jobs as toddler, as a schoolchild, horsing around with Ella Fitzgerald, dressing up (and apparently powdering his hair) to look like Franklin Delano Roosevelt.
"The tribute must have been deeply moving for Steve and his colleagues at the time it was made," writes McCracken on Technologizer. "And if you can watch it today without getting at least very slightly emotional–particularly as you listen to Dylan's lyrics–you're reading the wrong blog."
It's available on YouTube here and posted below the fold.
This one never aired. Richard Dreyfuss provided the voice-over on the broadcast version
The ad and the slogan -- a play on IBM's (IBM) "Think" -- were created for Apple (AAPL) by the Los Angeles office of Chiat\Day.
The spot features, in order of their appearance, Albert Einstein, Bob Dylan, Martin Luther King, Jr., Richard Branson, John Lennon (with Yoko Ono), Buckminster Fuller, Thomas Edison, Muhammad Ali, Ted Turner, Maria Callas, Mahatma Gandhi, Amelia Earhart, Alfred Hitchcock, Martha Graham, Jim Henson (with Kermit the Frog), Frank Lloyd Wright and Pablo Picasso.

The commercial uses Bob Dylan's 1965 classic, Subterranean Homesick Blues.
Google also posted (below)the whole hour-plus of the Google Instant presentation which gets pretty technical at times. Still, good to watch...especially the phrase "Google is the third half of your brain" by Brin which seems to be catching on.Seth Weintraub - Sep 8, 2010 11:54 PM ET
