Ok, I'll bite on the subject. I have yet to figure out the whole "Cult of Steve" thing anyway. Steve Jobs is a former hardware/software guy, and is now an executive. His presentations are from the perspective of an executive who digs cool stuff, NOT from a guy who spends his days working out bugs in software or figuring out why a particular peripheral doesn't do what it's supposed to. (I say that out of respect for his body of work, too; he's been an innovator in just about everything he's done.)

Now I should also point out that having "ideas of reference," which are the idea that commonplace and public events have a special significance to you (or a group you assume membership in) is a symptom of schizophrenia. Slips of the tongue in a presentation are something that happens (and I've spent most of my life speaking in public), NOT something that is inserted to telegraph corporate plans. Steve's "whatever that is" line may have been intended to be funny more than to imply anything like the user not having to understand the underlying technology. Funny is always good in a presentation.

Ok, run with that!

In honor of the excitement surrounding WWDC, I am bumping this video for those that never caught it.

"I don't know what it does. Predicts branches."
"Authentication with Kerberos and whatever that is..."
"What is this? I don't know, but it works."

I don't think these were bloopers. Jobs sometimes glosses over uber-techie stuff so as to not bore the audience.

My favorite blooper (not on the video) what when he was demoing loops in GarageBand, he meant to say "let's go get a woody-sounding bass," but it came out "let's go get a woody, uh..."

He did look really pissed about that camera, though...

Waste of time. EDIT: ok, maybe that was too negative. Sorry.
