"Looking back, there were a number of Apple products that came out in the Jobs-less era that theoretically should have been very good for the company, but were either poorly managed or not marketed well enough to gain ground. In these examples we can see how losing Jobs today bodes ill for Apple investors. Perhaps without Jobs telling us what we want before we want it, even the best, most revolutionary products will go unnoticed."
"Steve Jobs is one of the great innovators in the history of modern capitalism," New York Times columnist Joe Nocera told CNN's Piers Morgan Wednesday night. "His intuition has been phenomenal over the years."
To me, his voice is a big part of his presentations. Yes, it's high pitched but, the biggest feature of the sound of his voice is how intelligent it sounds. He just sounds incredibly intelligent and I think this is a big part of what had people mesmerized.

Probably my favorite keynote. There was one more that I really liked also where he introduced item after item. Saying "so, what's next" and kept introducing new items. I'll see if I can find that one too.
And again this morning I see another article about Jobs that looks like a eulogy; especially the titles. OK, the man's impact on industry and culture may be coming to a close, but can the eulogies wait until his actual time of passing? It's morbid and depressing.
