Just thought you guys may be interested in this video. Take notice that the audience is not as excited about the product. The energy in the room is non- existence, tough crowd.

If you though the people in the room were a tough crowd, have a look at how badly the people here on MacRumours (http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?t=500) reacted!
This quote sums up what a lot of people though at the time:

"I'd call it the Cube 2.0 as it wont sell, and be killed off in a short time...and it's not really functional."


By the way, the iPod's 7th Anniversary is actually three weeks tomorrow.

Contrast that reaction with the iPhone's unveiling (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PZoPdBh8KUs). Complete opposites.
