Podcast: The Mac turns 25

Larry Magid speaks with KCBS co-anchors Patti Reising and Jeff Bell about the 25th anniversary of the Apple Macintosh--from what he thought about the machine in 1984 to what the future holds.

For my daily segment on San Francisco's KCBS radio station, I spoke with co-anchors Patti Reising and Jeff Bell about the 25th anniversary of the Mac, my original impressions of the machine, and my predictions--not just for Apple but also for tech innovation.

Read my Los Angeles Times review of the Mac, published in January 1984.
