Modern Marvels ad

A MacNN reader notes that a 'Modern Marvels' commercial on the History Channel indirectly references Apple.

"It starts off showing 'Someone's Garage 1975.' It then shows two long haired, bearded guys amidst a bunch of electronic parts. One guys suggests to the other that they need to come up with a big idea. The other guys says that they should take a huge computer and shrink it down so that everyone can put it on their desktops and use it for accounting and games. 'We can call it... the grapefuit', the one says. 'Love the idea, work on the name' the other says to him. It then fades to the announcer saying 'If it changes your life, chances are it's a modern marvel'."
