Macworld Boston 97 Keynote???

Posted:
in General Discussion edited January 2014
Anyone know where I might find a video of the full thing? I realise it's going to be on tape rather than on the web in all likelihood and I'd pay for a copy to be made if I can track one down.



Thanks

    out of interest. steve jobs hd only just returned. apple was in a terrible mess and it would be interesting to contrast the tone and the way jobs presents with the upbeat tone of todays keynotes.

    Is that the keynote with Bill Gates? The one where he was on the big screen and people were booing...or did this event even exist?

    Anyone want the light-black and gray-print t-shirt from that expo? I don't think I wore it once. That was back when I was telling myself I was still a size "Medium".



    Place a bid in a PM.

    It would indeed be interesting to see what the reaction to Steve was like before the iMac was released, and what Apple's emphasized product was.




    Actually, if you specifically want to see Bill gates on the large screen beeing booed at, it was Boston 97, just after the 5 year deal with Apple was struck in August. The iMac came quite a while after in May 98

    There wasnt anything to announce I dont think. Steve had to buy some time with



    "i'm a product guy and i beleive if you build great products, people will respond to that, and i can tell you we're working on some great products"

    Just for shits, i watched some of the 2004 MWSF. Pretty funny, they were approaching 30 million sold songs (1.9 m a day) and going for the 100 million per year goal.



    And to think now their aiming for a billion a year.

    Fact: BIll Gates appeared via satellite during the MacWorld Boston 1997 keynote.



    I have the clip from that keynote, I would like the entire keynote though.

    VWtapes did the audio and video recordings for MacWorld Expo Boston '97. You can try contacting them to see if they'd be willing to sell you a copy of the keynote video.

    That's too bad. I got some of the past keynote tapes from them several years ago. Unfortunately, the Boston '97 keynote wasn't one of them.
