    Hi,

    I am working with the Keynote from the MacWorld 2007. There is one "joke" I don't get. It is at about 08:30, there is a cover flow from the new movies that Paramount offers via iTunes. When the "Star Trek II" cover comes up, there is laugther in the audience, even before Steve says anything? :confused: Why?

    Then he makes a comment and says "all 6 Star Trek movies", there is laugther again, I guess this laugther is because there are more than 6 movies. But since I don't know why the laugh only at the cover I might be wrong here or miss the actual punch line.

    Can you help me out?

    The only clue I have has is the Project Star Trek from Apple, but even with that I can't see the relation from laughing at the cover of a movie... :confused:

    any help is really appreciated

    Folks laughed because there was a loud Mac community wanting Star Trek back in the iTunes store. Kind of an inside joke.

    Maybe that and the "Star Trek" program to have Apple become a "Software Only Company" and make OS X run on Intel.

    Funny Apple switched to Intel instead...

    The whole mention of 6 movies refers to the fact that the first 6 were from the original series, and the next 4 were based on The Next Generation series. Many die-hard trekkies refuse to acknowledge the most recent 4 as true Star Trek movies. As for me - I'm waiting for a Voyager film and NOT looking forward to the sure-to-be bomb of a prequel coming out later this year. The end. :p
