Steve Jobs may have instilled Apple's executives with his design philosophies, but there's one thing he couldn't pass on: showmanship.
Whenever he walked onstage, you could feel Jobs' cadence, from his rhythmic pacing to punctuated speech. Like a great concert, it never felt rehearsed, but he hit every mark with precision. There have been plenty of great Apple products unveiled when Jobs wasn't on the stage--iMac G5, iPhone 5, iPad mini, iOS 7, even today's iPhone 5S--but despite the jokes and cheers, it never feels quite like it used to, when the lights dimmed and the master appeared.
