http://www.cnet.co.uk/i/c/blg/cat/gadgets/macheads_review.jpgSnagFilms recently acquired the 2009 feature length documentary MacHeads which explores the loyalty of Apple Fanatics and their obsession. The best part, is it's free.

MacHeads is embedded on SnagFilms.com for your viewing pleasure and they encourage you watch, spread, and share it to your heart's content.

The synopsis:

In 1985, Apple aired the commercial Macintosh the Computer for the Rest of Us offering the general public the possibility of using computers in their homes for the first time. MacHEADS follows the story of the Macintosh community and its unconditional devotion to Apple Inc. For them the Mac was not just a machine - it came with a social movement, a whole community which believed they were going to change the world. MacHEADS : is a feature length documentary which explore the loyalty of Apple Fanatics and their obsession. The film takes an in-depth examination of just what makes the Mac, the iPhone, and Apple’s other products seem like cultural phenomena rather than just consumer electronics.

MacHeads is a worthwhile investment of time. It offers a rare peek inside the cult of Mac taking you on an unnarrated tour through a world of rabid, unabashed Apple fanboyism. The vintage clips of Macworld Expo are alone worth the price of admission – and hey, the price is right.

My favorite part is when Daniel Kottke (Apple employee #1) says "we all wanted a computer that you could take to bed with you." That and the interviews with the people waiting in line for the original iPhone to go on sale.

If a movie about the heights of Mac nerddom doesn't do it for you SnagFilms has a library of 1,000 other documentary films that you can stream for free.
