Live from the Apple ‘latest creation’ event

by on Jan.28, 2010, under cool, News

Live from Yerba Buena Centre in San Francisco;

1:07 am: Doors to the centre are yet to be opened reporters and celebrity look alike are waiting patiently out side for the doors to opens

out side the convention center

1:018: Engadget reports of large crowds and festive moods; its party in the usa baby

1:44: The setup on stage is really interesting. There’s a chair with a table next to it… very unusual for an Apple event.

inside the center

2:00: The lights are going down… its starting

2:01: And Steve is out! Huge applause

2:02 “We want to kick of 2010 by introducing a magical and revolutionary product today… but first I have a few updates.”

2:04 “Next update — the app store. We have over 140k apps, and a few weeks ago we announced a user downloaded 3b apps.”

2:05 “Lastly — we started Apple in 1976 — 34 years later we just ended our holiday quarter with 50.6b dollars of revenue…” He showed a pic of him and Woz!

2:04 Now Steve is talking about the new Apple store in NYC. “Here it is on opening day. It’s so wonderful to put these stores in the neighborhoods with our customers.

02:06 “Now where do we get this revenue? iPods, iPhones, and Macs. What’s interesting is that iPods are mobile devices, the iPhone is, and most of our computers. We’re a mobile company. That’s what we do. How do we stack up against all the other companies that sell mobile devices? We’re the largest mobile device company in the world. Larger than Sony, bigger than Samsung….””Now where do we get this revenue? iPods, iPhones, and Macs. What’s interesting is that iPods are mobile devices, the iPhone is, and most of our computers.

2:07 “So let’s get to the main event.”

2:09 “Let’s go back to 1991, when we first shipped our Powerbooks. The first with a TFT screen, the first with palm rests, and had an integrated pointing device. Just a few years ago in 2007 we reinvented the phone… and a few years later we got the iPhone 3GS.”

2:10 “SO all of us use laptops and smartphones… the question has arisen; is there room for something in the middle. We’ve wondered for years as well — in order to create that category, they have to be far better at doing some key tasks… better than the laptop, better than the smartphone.”
