All Things Digital has posted the full, uncut video of the opening session of its D8 conference last week, which featured an interview with Apple CEO Steve Jobs conducted by Walt Mossberg and Kara Swisher. Video clips from the interview were posted soon after it ended, but with the full 90+ minute interview now available, Apple fans have a warm-up act to enjoy before Jobs takes the stage for his keynote presentation at the company's Worldwide Developers Conference in just a few hours.

iPad and iPhone/iPod touch readers should note that while the embedded version of the video requires Flash, the video hosted on All Things Digital's site is a non-Flash format compatible with your device.

Thing is, it shows the video is buffered at least 10 mins or so ahead of where I am at.

How ironic that one of the biggest topics discussed is Steve Jobs thoughts on FLASH not being necessary and that's being fiercely debated in another thread here, yet no one on an iPAD can even watch this video on Macrumors!

Too Funny! LOL :D

FAIL. How ironic that you fail at reading post #6.

Where do you think that video comes from? When you visit the original page on iPad or iPhone you get non-flash version of the video.

Yeah right like the average non-dork actually read post #6 on their iPad. LOL

Gimme a break... FAIL!

Geeks always live in a whole other world than the average person.
I know because I'm a geek, but mostly don't have geek friends! :)

Nobody on this site ever gets that! LOL

By the way, Steve Jobs himself admitted that 75% of websites use Flash and that he was hoping it would get to 50% soon. Soon? What date on the calender is "soon?"

Now on my iPhone, that's not a really big deal. But I'd used a tablet for more and different things than an iPhone.

If you spend over $500 for a computer/tablet device that doesn't show 75% of the web content, I would think you'd be disappointed.

1. If you go to their site on iPad, the video works. So obviously you don't own one.

2. Ever heard of Flash blockers? Many people use it.

3. Please, stick with your floppy drives while the world moves ahead. I am you are picking up the internet taps with your Flash-ad enabled device.

Yeah, you FAIL.

I just saw the whole thing on my iPad without any delays, right from the link on the All Things Digital video site. No flash needed. No need to de a tech geek.

Next time you use all bold type, make sure you fully understand what you're talking about and not just assume a video won't play on an iPad.
Consultant's right. Just stick with floppy drives and let the tech world move ahead.

Too funny! LOL :D

While everyone else is hung up on the video being flash... I was enjoying Jobs comments about the TV. How I wish Apple could have a hand in moving TV into the future. I got rid of cable 3 years ago and haven't looked back. xbox360 with Netflix streaming and a HD antenna have made me forget about cable. If someone could change how TV is presented on cable I'd be back. My gf still has cable. The only current LIVE show we watch is Breaking Bad. Comcast sucks. Almost every channel breaks up. She has 3 HD AMC channels. WHY? Why not one that doesn't break up on screen. My friends all have the same problem. Overall the idea I have to tune into a TV show at a set time is old.

Best Ever

Steve gives the best interviews ever of any one in his position. I love watching them and I love his Keynotes! I train employees on Apple products at my work and I always base the way I present them on the way Steve presents. Ever since I started doing that I have receive non stop praise of my training skills.

I think to myself... I'm just emulating Steve Jobs, but thanks!

I'm a bit behind and just now watched the interview, but I do love watching someone so gifted and passionate about his job. I really liked how he stressed over and over that their (Apple's) main goal is make the 'Best product ever'. Really liked the part about Flash being a descending technology and they are more interested in ascending tech. I don't work in tech and do not know the validity of that, but I understand what he means and I for one tend to trust Apple in the future of tech gadgets.

I saw this video a while ago, but I'm first commenting on it now.

The only thing that I didn't like about it is that woman. Who is that woman and why is she there interviewing Steve Jobs? I'm not feeling her at all.
