Apple High Holy Days

I'm excited about MacWorld, too, but maybe live updates of the keynote every twenty seconds is a bit much.

9:12 am James Brown - "I Feel Good" playing now
9:10 am people still seating, ushers wearing turquoise shirts
9:10 am "every day is a winding road"

9:08 am please turn off all cell phones and other devices

I'm not sure we have this level of detail on the Kennedy assassination or the Challenger explosion. If this guy could just type faster we'd have the first example of text delivered so fast it actually becomes a sort of video.

Yes, that is a part of it. I would have been right there applauding with the rest of them from 9:14 AM to 9:15 AM.

Can we retire the 'CEO in jeans' look? CEOs should wear suits, parachute pants, or fishnet stockings.

How does one attain a job like that? My 13-year-old neice would be brilliant at speed texting for a living.

I'm actually here and I was doing that during the conference. Although I typed much faster than that guy. I also made hilarious comments about Steve Jobs' turtleneck -ON THE FLY. But you weren't online.
