Apple releases moving pictures of Steve Jobs keynote

You too can witness reality distortion

5 things you didn’t know about cloud backup

Apple today released the full video of Monday's Worldwide Developers Conference keynote, featuring the iPhone 4 as introduced by huckstermeister extraordinaire Steve Jobs.

The video lasts one hour, fifty-two minutes, and forty-six seconds — from the ovation as Jobs enters stage right to the crowd exiting to the strains of Louis Armstrong's "When You're Smiling" from Apple's new FaceTime commercial.
