    I'm unsure if I have the title right ... but I'll give it a shot.

    1st - Steve Jobs & John Mayer at special event for music/itunes/ipod live performance!!
    (Today I don't think GarageBand would have been an 'optional installation' on OSX)

    2. - Steve Jobs opening for Wynton Marsalis ... Marsalis' performance and how such a stuck-up and unknowing crowd really roared in elation of that whole moment!!

    Recent memory, it would have to be the original iPhone keynote.

    So was I. But as I have a 21" iMac it didn't seem worth the hassle!

    I have a tie between waiting in line for my first iPhone (4) and taking delivery of my first iMac. Both good apple memory's and good user experience.

    Going to an orchard in Michigan with my mother when I was around 10. There was a huge barn filled to the rafters with bushel baskets of apples and the smell was heaven! I'm pretty sure they were Macintosh, too.

    At this point in time, neither of the Steves were even born and the nearest computer was in a clean room serviced by IBM suites. White coats, I mean.

    That seat was reserved for Jony Ive, not Steve.

    From what I've read all the signs point to it being left as a tribute to Steve. Do you have a source for it being Ive's seat?

    when Steve first showed the world what Mac OS X was…



    It has always fascinated me how much OS X has matured over the years ;)

    Jony Ive couldn't be with anyone from Apple at that point because he was hurt too much, so he didn't come to the keynote, since Steve was already on his death bed. As you know, he passed away the next day. Also, this was the same reason Ive didn't attend the Steve Jobs memorial event at Apple Campus.

    I was waiting in line for the original iPad on launch day. I didn't expect Steve Wozniak would be waiting in line just ahead of me. I also didn't expect getting him to sign my original iPad. Many expectations were broken (in a good way) that day.
