Thread Starter 
Today affter the keynote we all filed out of the keynote room. About ten min latter I reilized the I had dropeed my badge. I whent back to look for in the keynote room. When I whent back there were only about 25 people there including steve jobs and jonathan ives. I whent up to steve and interduced my selfe and chated fro a couple min. It was really fun! He is a very nice guy. He let me go up on the stage and get my pic taken with the new iMac (the on the keynote stage that came up on the pedistul). I had a blast. Here are some pics. <a href="http://homepage.mac.com/michael_m/PhotoAlbum5.html" target="_blank">http://homepage.mac.com/michael_m/PhotoAlbum5.html</a>


By they way you can here me yell a few things in the keynote. Forexample. When steve says what people whanted in the high end iBook I yelled "SUPERDRIVE!!" but he said 14" screen. But We agreed when he said how much should iPhoto be. I yelled Free and he said $0.00

Yes I was very close. It is butifull!! It may not look that nice on the web ( I think it dose thogh) But in person! Man dose it glow! It is such a friendly computer. Only 2 complaints. No slot loading. And the Power Button is in back. But I will live.

Wow, cool man!

I gotta say, that iMac screen looks big when you're standing next to it. Not that you look small, just that you get a good feel for the size of it.

Oh, and the pic with Steve and the iMac popping out of your head is hilarious...life....ain't it grand.

Sounds like fun! And thanks for posting the pix.

Did you make that site in iPhoto?
I noticed that it's the only one on the page with the "slideshow" tabsthat are actually incredibly handy.

That's awesome.

But the first photo of Steve has got to be the worst I've ever seen! <img src="graemlins/bugeye.gif" border="0" alt="[Skeptical]" /> Definitely tabloid material.

The once and future CEOs of Apple together in one photo!

Sure, sure, "I left my pass..."

If I could pick one AI member to meet Steve besides myself, you'd be the one. Way to go, Michaelm!

That's really cool. What exactly did you talk to him about for those couple of minutes? Did you have to get special permission to go back into the Hall or did you just walk right in to look for the badge? (I hope you found it, btw).

I'm sure you dropped hints about how much we want a new PDA, though, right?
post #24 of 52
Mikey is my hero, he's always doing fun crap like this.

What I wouldn't give to have such enthusiasm and optimism!

Keep on truckin', mike.

If I went to MacWorld, I would have whipped up a special, one-off AppleInsider T-Shirt just for the occasion.

Though, I'm sure Steve would have called security the moment he saw it.
post #26 of 52

I thought steve had a body, or is that just a dock so he can interface to his mac and recharge?
post #27 of 52
What did you two talk about? My wish is to meet Steve too.

MichaelM:

I don't know what you do for a living, but your wire mounted iMAc design was bitching cool, and closest (IMO) to the 'spirit' (if not the form) of the new iMac of all the mockups I saw.

You should try to get a job with Ives and co; it's obvious you are on their wavelength. (Then, come back to AI and leak the good stuff. ) I'm serious; you seem to have the talent and whiz bang thinking to be in design.

Dude, Mike! I haven't seen your picture since the one on AI Community Pics.

You're going to knock the girls dead. Just don't forget about us when you start dating.

hahaha, so i'm not the only one that noticed he looks about 5 years older. i was expecting a wormy lookin kid in his socks (no offense! you're growin up!)

i think he just throws us off with the spelling!

(oh by the way, i like the snow mouse mod. apparently, so did steve! you should ask for a free one, since it was your idea and all )

Thanks a lot. I told Steve " I guess you do not know this yet, but in a couple of years I am going to be working for apple" he said " Geat! Go for it!"

About the new Mikes Snow Pro Mouse knock off that apple just came out with . I whent nuts in the keynote when I saw that. I was holding mine at the time. listen when he shows that slide I am sure you will here me.

I met Phil for the second time today. We were crossing the street at the same time. I said hi and that I saw him at apple the other day but I did not say hi beacuse he looked very bissy. He said "Yes I always am" he was sort of an ass.

Yeah....sometimes people who look cool in public can be an ass in person.

Same to when I was meeing with couple of well know media producers. They are very cool in interviews and such but when I meet and talk to them in person they were real ass. Looked me down and treated me like shit.

Phill was not that bad. He was just not to nice. I did not feel that he was to friendly.

Steve thogh was very nice.

In Phil's case I think you meant sometimes people who look like a doofus in public can be an ass in person.

"I told Steve " I guess you do not know this yet, but in a couple of years I am going to be working for apple" he said " Geat! Go for it!"

I bet if someone said that to him after Macworld New York last year he would have fired them in advance!

Or maybe hired them on the spot, come to think of it.

I think the tray load design is great.

It keeps the lines to a minimum.

It also makes it easier to incorporate new drive technologies in the future.

I guess it is maybe just me though.
