    Phrase? It sounds like the only thing “beeped” is the word, “Macintosh”.
    The bit from 1984 is called, “It sure is great to get out of that bag.”

    Macintosh

    Hello, I am Macintosh. It sure is great to get out of that bag!

    Unaccustomed as I am to public speaking, I’d like to share with you a maxim I thought of the first time I met an IBM mainframe: Never trust a computer that you can’t lift!

    Obviously, I can talk, but right now I’d like to sit back and listen. So it is with considerable pride that I introduce a man who has been like a father to me… Steve Jobs!
