I introduced my senior class to this classic Macintosh ad from the 1984 Superbowl.

Choose one specific example from the commercial and
explain what you believe to be the overall comment or
criticism about society that the “1984” Macintosh
commercial makes using that example.

It is a very vivid example of the book and choice. It is terrific in retrospect, looking back at the history of the Mac vs the PC. I remember when Mac almost went belly up, when Microsoft gave a bit of financial help to Apple, solely for the excuse as then they couldn't be considered a monopoly. That's the way I remember it, anyway.
