As we reported over the weekend, Apple has posted a video of the October 19th celebration of Steve Jobs’ life featuring reminiscences by Apple CEO Tim Cook, Bill Campbell, Al Gore, and Jony Ive, and musical performances by Norah Jones and Coldplay.
The 1:21:09 streaming video requires Safari 4 or 5 on Mac OS X Snow Leopard or Lion, Safari on iOS 3 or later, or QuickTime 7 on Windows. You can watch the complete special event, filmed live at the Apple campus in Cupertino, California, here.
FairerPlatform writes, “Lots of folks have quoted Ive’s speech to Apple coworkers and the gathered digerati at the company’s 1 Infinite Loop campus on Wednesday, October 19. Now, you can watch the design genius deliver his emotive address, snarky humor and all — yeah, he’s complicated, too.”
MacDailyNews Take: Our own SteveJack wrote the following over eight years ago, in August 2003:
Watch Ive in the Power Mac G5 intro video. Ive first appears about 40% in, at the 2:50 mark of the 6:33 minute video. Note that he is almost wearing a black mock turtleneck already. Contrast his presentation style and enthusiasm with the other Apple presenters. Can you sense the almost Jobsian, call it Junior Jobsian, aura? Ive has “it” while all of the other Apple employees in the video are just nice people talking about a computer. And Ive should only get better with time.
Tim Cook should seriously consider having Jony Ive do Apple’s keynote presentations or, at the very least, participate in a significant fashion.
