Steve Jobs is to be sued over the misappropriation of his latest catchphrase. The offence was noted during the recent MWSF keynote:

I did notice that Jobs said "boom" numerous times. It also sounded like he had a heavy lisp... but that could have been the audio.

I've always thought Jobs saying "boom" was kind of like a taunt. When I hear "boom" I think of bombs. When I think of bombs, I think of the System 7 sad Mac on startup. When I think of that, I think of kernel panics. So I think Jobs is basically toying with OS X like, "Come on, try and crash on me. Do it. Do it now! Kill me I'm here! Come on!" Except the ending to that sounds more like Governator than anyone else.
Genius. You know who.

I watched the keynote and only remember hearing "boom" once.

He said "Incredible", "amazing", "awsome", etc. and numerous other interjections throughout his presentation.

In the first half I counted at least 10 booms. A few highlights:

Truly Great Work!

Though Steve has still been easily 'outboomed' by Basil; possibly the most aggravating fakefur creation ever exposed on children's TV. Every puerile 'joke' made on his camp show was followed by an inevitable "Boom Boom" I understand the record number ever recorded within one 30min. show was 126.

That was fantastic. Remember, I said I only "remember" one boom. I guess I hadn't been paying attention much. I've been outboomed.

Interesting, but I don't think that's the intent behind SJ's exclamation. The connotation behind it is "it's that fast - boom" raid fire, one after another boom, boom, boom.

So then shouldn't it be "bang.. bang. bang bang bangggg"? To me bang suggests something even faster than boom. Boom seems like a slow grenade launcher or something.

Did anyone else notice how many times he said "mere mortals" when referring to Mac OS X user interface? I think someone has a little bit of a God complex

You should have those problems looked into. In the meantime, I have to add something to my ignore list...

If you have permission couldn't you host whatever you wanted instead of using the same sig?
