did you think he was going to retire? ...or take a leave? That was my first thought.
i thought the same thing
He was probably so excited with the iPhone that he just had to have them there. Don't look into this too much
The point was to thank his family and all the other families for their support in helping get the iPhone ready in the build up to the expo and over the preceding years. Steve thanked the families in his keynote directly. I guess it to the public it says 'we do magic but we have personal lives too', maybe this is the softer side of Steve coming out.
The iPhone is likely to be 10 times more successful than the iPod and he wanted to share the moment (introducing his/Apple's greatest achievment so far) with family.
What would you say? "naw, mom, why don't you just stay home for this one. you can catch the live feeds on macrumors.com...."
yeah. i didn't think so.
and what's wrong with that?
I thought that was it for him, yep. Thought that the iPhone was his last Hurrah!
This was a product that has been pretty secret - even though there have been rumors about it - for so long and it was such a monumental announcement that the families had to be there.
Steve said in the CNBC interview post-keynote:
(loosely quoted) "I serve at the pleasure of the board of directors and the stockholders, and as long as they are happy with the job I'm doing, I'd love to keep doing this job."
To me, that doesn't sound like he's going anywhere anytime soon.
Maybe his family has not seen him much in the 2.5 years of iPhone development. Honey, I'll see you in six months once this is released!
