I really enjoyed that little bit of self deprecating humor. Somehow that should be in the list.

...appeared at Macworld NY. If I do a NY list in the summer, he'll definitely be on it.

I am kind of surprised the Cube didn't get a mention - one way, or the other. It sure caused a stir at the NY MacWorld. I thought it was gorgeous.

Agreed. The Cube was a great moment. But that was a NY show, and I limited this list to SF keynotes.

I don't remember that from re-watching, but he did say the drive had to be mounted horizontally because otherwise they'd have to slow the speed way down. Guess they solved that problem.

Great list. If memory serves, while introducing the Sunflower iMac, Steve took the time to mention that one of the wonderful things about it was that the optical drive wasn't crammed vertically behind the screen like other, lesser all-in-ones (ahem!). No, Steve assured us that the iMac's CD drive was horizontal so that "every component could be true to itself," or something similar. I'm hardly RDF-resistant, but even I had to laugh when I heard that one. "The CD drive is true to itself! Where's my credit card?!"
