This is Andy Hertzfeld, the software wizard and one of the geniuses behind the original Apple Macintosh, and these are rare interviews from an original Macintosh commercial that never made the cut.

The interviews were recorded in October 1983 and it features the all star engineer team who created the machine including Burrell Smith, George Crow, Bill Atkinson, Mike Murray and Andy Hertzfeld himself.

Andy Hertzfeld was a key designer of its Mac software. When he left Apple, he founded Radius and General Magic where he created many of the core ideas of the web and devices like the iPad. Hertzfeld now works at Google. Check out the lost and never aired before video below:
