Apple releases moving pictures of Steve Jobs keynote

You too can witness reality distortion

Eight steps to building an HP BladeSystem

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.

A few highlights:

  • 00:55:09 — Apple video god Randy Ubillos demos iMovie for iPhone.
  • 01:01:21 — Jobs explains why he wants everyone in the audience to turn off their demo-killing Wi-Fi.

  • 01:28:55 — "One more thing..." as Jobs demos FaceTime iPhone 4–to–iPhone 4 videoconferencing with Jonathan Ive.
  • 01:48:55 — Jobs waxes sincere and sentimental, sums up, thanks the troops, and says: "This is our new baby. I hope you love it as much as we do."

Even the CEO of the Decade is powerless when the demo gods strike

If you've never viewed a Jobsian keynote, we recommend that you carve out some time to watch this one — if only to see a master at work. ®
