    To all those wondering about Steve Jobs, saying that he looked sick @ WWDC and was handing the reigns off to potential successors ...

    ... well, this Stevenote proved that Steve Jobs is looking quite healthy and went through the entire keynote himself... not to mention, he has a newfound fashion sense: Steve Jobs not wearing a Black Turtle Neck? *cue dramatic music*. :D

    Now that's a sure sign that end-times are upon us.

    I did notice that Steve looked a lot better this time around. His performance was also much better, too. He didn't have any awkward pauses like last time. Go, Steve! :D

    He looked awesome in the first 30mins or so (what i've seen so far) and since it is unlikely that he deteriorated in the rest of the keynote, i'd say that's our steve!

    At least some things never change, though; he loved the Shuffle, the nano ads (always a favorite for him), and Cars (or any Pixar movie). The man does seem to enjoy demoing new stuff, though.

    The audience seemed rather blah. With the iTV preview -- something Apple RARELY does -- he actually had to ask the audience to respond. Honestly, what in the Hell? It really seemed as though he was struggling to draw out the audience's enthusiasm.

    I noticed this as well. It was a tough crowd today... usually they're going crazy over this stuff. Just wait for the touchscreen iPod. I know they'll go crazy over that. :D

    He looked much much healthier today, the crowd were crap, I was very impressed with the presentation, especially those new Shuffles! :eek:

    Cheers

    It was a very tough crowd. I actually felt kind of bad for Steve because the audience was so dead. He looked good today though. Styling in that slick black shirt.

    Reporters = Tough crowd.

    Not your typical Mac enthusiasts. Not to mention that the revelations were short of surprises and even shorter of awe inspiring. If a full screen 16:9 iPod were released, we'd have a much more enthusiastic crowd.

    I liked the keynote and was happy with the new stuff, but the movies part was underwhelming considering the prices and lack of both full all studio support and international reach.

    I think we'll have a good MacWorld 2007 in SF this year, which I'll definitely attend.

    As far as the reporters go, their job is to be there and report the story, not cheer for every new product. You get cheers at WWDC and MacWorld because those are your base. Reporters are supposed to act thoroughly unimpressed.

    He definately peformed in a more business-like manner and barely got an insider titter other than the reference to the new eco-packaged iPods ... a topic that fed those same hungry reporters a couple of weeks ago. Whereas at the normal fan-drenched events even the announcement of the iPod Socks got cheers of approval.

    More professional, more him and more complete .... definately geared towards filling more media coverage to help those people still struggling to write suitable content in their letters to Santa.

    Quite right. At MacWorld, the media watches the performance quietly, taking notes, video and photos. Most of the cheers you hear are coming from the rest of the house.

    I can't get over how he's aged in just a few years. He is definitely a bit more distracted these days though when doing these keynotes.
