Like an Apple invitation to a post-holiday party, the first days of
January are usually reserved for rumors, speculation and general
excitement leading up to Steve Jobs’ annual keynote presentation at the
San Francisco Macworld Expo. The only hitch this year? Steve won’t be
there. Don't fret true belivers. Even without his Steveness delivering the news, or even at the helm, Apple has still delivered the goods.
Whether he’s telling us what mere mortals do and don’t need, assuring us that whatever he’s just showed us is “un-bel-liev-able,” or making the rare flub on stage, Apple’s CEO always puts on one hell of a show.
It turns out, people who constantly wear black turtlenecks are blessed with musical taste. Yep, that's right, CEO and all around
fashionista Steve Jobs, is responsible for the catchy tunes that are
used in iPod commercials.
