Craig was sucked into the endless vortex of tech at an early age, only to be spat back out babbling things like "phase-locked-loop crystal oscillators!". Mostly this receives a pat on the head from the listener, followed closely by a question about what laptop they should buy.

Illustrator turned 25 last month, and to celebrate Adobe has released the original video used to demonstrate version 1.1 of the software.

The video was captured from VHS, complete with hokey '80s music. While Illustrator was certainly a lot simpler back then, those familiar with the program will marvel at just how sophisticated it was for a monochrome Mac program.

We expect the significantly more complex Illustrator CS6 to be out shortly — want a preview of one of the new features? Check out the video below.
