CNBC’s presentation of “Welcome to Macintosh” will premiere on Monday, January 4th at 9:30pm ET and “Macheads” will premiere on Tuesday, January 5th at 10pm ET.

Welcome to Macintosh
Steve Jobs and Steve Wozniak, two friends united by their interest in technology and dissatisfied with personal computers made by others, set out to make what they called the world’s first good personal computer. The first Apple computer became the cornerstone of a company that would change the world. In 1984, Apple introduced Macintosh and thrust the industry forward into a new era. The style and ease of a Mac led to an inspired revolution in the computer industry. Whether you know it or not, these events have changed your life. CNBC’s Welcome to Macintosh looks back at the inventors, engineering and design that came together to produce the world renowned Mac computers.

MacHEADS
The Mac community is filled with adoring fans. There’s worldwide excitement and anticipation for “all things Apple.” You’ll meet adoring Apple fans with unwavering loyalty for the company and it’s products. What makes Mac computers, the iPhone and iPods so popular? CNBC’s MacHEADS explores the world of Mac, a cultural phenomena that created a cult fan base, made Steve Jobs a modern day hero and generated a multi-million dollar business.

    Yes it is, and with some good reviews on there too.

    Since, I can’t get CNBC here in France, I think I might rent it instead. From the reviews, it appears it’s not another anti-Apple documentary disguised as neutral. Having said that, I’m not looking forward to long opinion pieces of Guy Kawasaki the ex-evangelist. Had enough of those in the previous decade and the last page of MW.

  2. Think I will record it and play it to reprogram all the PC droids laboring around each day.

    We all know Steve has an added a message hidden unknown to the CNBC reporters. The reality distortion field is in full and hidden glory to create new Mac minions!

    That is the reason Steve Ballmer continues the ban on all things Apple from the Microsoft Campus!

  3. I’ve seen ‘Welcome to Macintosh’ via Netflix streaming; it’s worth watching. MacHEADS isn’t available yet on NF, so I guess I’ll try to catch this showing.

  4. “Steve Jobs and Steve Wozniak . . . dissatisfied with personal computers made by others, set out to make what they called the world’s first good personal computer.”

    Ridiculous revisionist history. I advise anyone who considers the above to be accurate to please read about both the beginning of Apple AND about the beginning of ‘personal computers’.

    Question: What was the first ‘personal computer’ sold under the marketing title of ‘personal computer’?

    Answer: The Apple ][

    (No, the Commodore PET was not yet being described as a ‘personal computer’)

    Result: From a marketing POV, the Apple ][ was the first ‘PC’.

  5. “a cultural phenomena that created a cult fan base, made Steve Jobs a modern day hero and generated a multi-million dollar business.”

    Multi-million. Right.

    I’m getting the idea that both of these shows are going to SUCK BAD. You’d think CNBC would be sticklers for both historic and financial accuracy. Apparently not.

  6. Awesome news! I literally just got done watching Macheads before I saw this headline at MacDailyNews! Wow, I can’t believe the timing. Anyway I’ve seen both documentaries and their both great.

    I know the produces of both films are extremely happy that CNBC will be showing their work. 

  7. Just amazing how ignorant bafoons pass as journalists today.

    They invented personal computers. They weren’t dissatisfied with personal computers made by others.

    What complete asshats. They probably also think that OSX is the Mac version of Windows!

  8. Perhaps CNBC would be better advised to show “Pirates of Silicon Valley”. Rather than focusing strictly on the evolution of the Macintosh, it’s a history of the early days of the personal computer and the portentous interaction between Jobs/Apple and Gates/Microsoft. Yeah, it’s a dramatization, but sometimes that’s the only way to tell a story.
