    Too bad that clip doesn't include the Xbox BSoD'ing. That was really cute "Uhh... just imagine I'm doing some really cool and incredible stuff..." :D

    Bill gets to feel the pain that the average Windows user have come to know. Justice is served in an International presentation. How do you like Windows now Bill?

    It's from Microsoft. What did you expect, Quicktime?

    Try CNet, I don't know if it is the same piece of footage, but they actually have a Mac specific link using RealOne that shows Bill and Conan trying to make a slide show work.

    I'm sorry for being a little selfish, but would someone mind describing what actually happened?

    I'm at work on a crappy PC (Windows NT), that doesn't work properly with the current version of Windows Media Player and I'm extreamly curious!

    Sweet justice! The first and only time I used Powerpoint, it froze during a major presentation I was making (to my board of directors, no less).

    How's it feel, Mr. Gates?

    It's interesting to watch both Bill's keynote and Steve's keynote back to back. They are really different styles. I wish all PC users could watch one Stevenote.

    i thought the picture of bill waking up in bed with a powerbook was funny! it would have been good if conan would have come out and said - "i'm an apple user" it would have sealed it off for bill. you could tell he wasnt enjoying it. he was squirming every time a joke was made about him, finished off with his fake (and very annoying laugh).

    and how many things went wrong! nice to see they were well prepared. i know things can go wrong but i think i counted atleast 3. it wasnt as slick as steve's.

    Comparing to Steve Job's only "freezeup/macos 10.4 tiger bug" situation, Steve was much calmer/smooth when that happened. He just switched to his backup computer and all was good... You didn't see that with the xbox? freezeup or the earlier media center 2005 freezeup.

    I think Steve had one more bug but he covered it up good. The Mail app integration with iPhoto didn't work.

    If Bill did the Stevenote, he would have sunk into his chair when the photo freezed up. Perhaps it was too expensive to have a backup system. Or they had several backup systems before the show but they can only get one to work so they used it. Perhaps PCs aren't such a good value as people thought. I wonder if Dell will have to sell their low-end at $149 including the monitor now to be competitive. The Celeron probably needs to be over 4 Ghz because it seems really slow at the high-end today.

    It's good that Tiger won't be released yet so that it can be better. The updates will take care of any minor stuff.

    lol yeah, I think it was because the popup saying do you want iPhoto to open when it was opened by a different app (good for security, especially from the mail program) that prevented the transfer. it might've happened still, jobs didn't wait around after it

    what I liked is how those "do you want to open me" messages kept popping up. you know jobs was grinding his teeth when he was saying "yes i want to open you" he looked/sounded pissed

    It looked as though he had never seen them. I set computers up all the time and breeze through those things. I was dissapointed he didn't make more cracks about bill, but I guess he took the higher road.
