    I've just watched the mac event presentation (two hours or so after watching the macbook designing movie). somehow, the presentation lacked the...punch, flare, than other keynote presentations by steve. But that may just be due to the order I watch the clips. The design clip was impressive though.

    also, personally, thin steve doesn't look as sharp, and more script mistakes? anyone share my view?

    um, what was there that was going to get people riled up? You can tell he played to how the crowd reacted, as evident by his long pauses at the beginning for the applause that never was.

    um.. I recall getting really excited watching his previous presentations. But I guess you do have a point.
    oh, talking about the crowd. He wasn't particulary patient when waiting for the unibody enclosure to be passed along the rows. Perhaps, even a little agitated at the slowness.

    Yea but that was because the only ones in the crowd were bloggers, and damn near everyone (most were from giz) in the backrow took it, held it, fondled it, spooned it, then took a picture with it. It was a good 3 minute pause.

    Jobs is known for many things, patients certainly not being one of them.

    Steve's presentations are very different when presenting to the press (today's) where he doesn't get any crowd feedback and when he's preaching to the choir like at MW or the WWDC.

    Also note that a large portion of the presentation was given by people other than Jobs who may or may not have the same punch that he has/had.

    Jobs was speaking to press members and whatnot, not the crowd of Mac enthusiasts found at MacWorld. The press simply isn't as enthusiastic as fans are.

    ya this is a smaller presentation, more "intimate" less people, less flare

    plus i just think the overall attitude was mellow just bc everything leaked beforehand and once things got started you could tell that everything you'd already seen was true

    Well, this wasn't a typical presentation by him, it seemed like one of the smallest crowds that I have ever seen at one of their product unveilings. From my view though, this presentation did seem much more professional, and I liked it more than past ones. The crowd didn't seem as into it though, but fo some reason, I was expecting that.

    Is it just me or is other people having trouble viewing it? The sound is all out of sync etc

    I thought it was kinda average for a press event, I think Steve looks a bit better now, but could put on a bit more weight.
