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:

  • 00:30:15 — Jobs begins the introduction of the iPhone 4.

  • 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.

  • 01:18:34 — Jobs explains why and how the iAds program will put money in the pockets of developers.
  • 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. ®
