Lost footage of Steve Jobs responding to Michael Dell’s SIDAGTMBTTS advice

MacDailyNews reader “Boomer” just sent us an email and a link to a video he just uploaded to YouTube.

 
Boomer writes: Hi MDN, I think I found a little gem on my hard disk today: Steve Jobs’ rebuttal of Michael Dell’s historic SIDAGTMBTTS (“Shut it down and give the money back to the shareholders”).

I instantly thought of you at MDN 🙂

 
I could not find the footage anywhere else on the web so it guess it hasn’t been seen for about 16 years.

UPDATE: 5:11pm EDT: Thanks to Torsten Alisch for pointing us to the full keynote via Vimeo user Guillaume Gete (where it’s apparently been for some two years!)

Jobs addresses Dell’s comments starting at 49:27 in the keynote video:

MacDailyNews Take: Finally, the targeted Michael Dell imagery has been found! We haven’t seen this since we saw it live in 1997!

Thanks, Boomer, Torsten Alisch, and Guillaume Gete!

    1. So, after Mr. Dell had to SIDAGTMBTTS, I bet he wished he never said it an hoped the SIDAGTMBTTS would disappear.

      The should start each of the quarterly reports with video of these idiots comments. Like Ballmer’s about the iPhone not having buttons. No vision, imagination or class! I see the watch comments now.

  1. Excellent to finally see the Bulls eye on Mikey’s face. I’ve read about it so many times. This is the first time Ive seen it. I loved it! Go Apple. Great job Steve.
