Back when Gil Amelio was CEO and you could buy a Performa at Sears, there was an Apple infomercial on broadcast and cable TV called The Martinettis Bring a Computer Home. Cheesy? Heck yeah! But it’s also a lot of fun to watch Apple sell — well, try — Macs on TV.

During 1995, Apple ran an infomercial called “The Martinetti’s Bring Home a Computer” to sell Macintosh computers and promote its Performa line. The infomercial followed the fictional Martinetti family as they brought home their first computer and attempted to convince the father of the family to keep the computer by using it for various educational, business and other household purposes.Wikipedia

MacHEADS is a feature length documentary which explores the loyalty of Apple fanatics and their obsession with the company and its products.

Steve Jobs: One Last Thing looks not only at how his talent, his style and his imagination have shaped all of our lives, but also at the influences that shaped and moulded the man himself.
