The 1984 ad and much more!

A short video history of negative tech ads

It all goes back to the very first Macintosh TV ad — the legendary "1984." True, the commercial didn't mention Microsoft by name. But it did compare people who used IBM PCs — powered by Bill Gates and Paul Allen's MS-DOS — to a zombie army under the control of an evil overlord. That can't be considered a compliment.

Comment: Some great old ads! More on the 1984 ad here.
