No worries. You're not the only one. I heard about it a few weeks ago on an episode of The Daily Show I think. Who knew? (Other than everyone else that's already posted :) )

I hope that's a rhetorical question or MR's servers will go *bang*.

I remember Steve announcing it back in the day. You can sometimes spot Al in the crowd at the keynotes. I think he was in one of them. An iChat demo or something.

He did, after all, "invent the internet". ;)

Yeah, here it is:

He was also part of the iPhone demo at MWSF 2007. IIRC, he was one of the voicemail messages.
