Losing My SteveNote Virginity

Tomorrow I get to take a break from covering Taiwanese mini-notebooks to experience something unlike anything I have ever experienced before. I have heard tales from young and old, and far and wide about the surreal experience that is only 11 hours away. It is not an eclipse. It is not one of the seven wonders of the world. It is, no other than, a Steve Jobs keynote or a SteveNote. I am calling it losing my SteveNote virginity because that is how monumental of an event I think it is to a technology journalist like myself. So am I ready for my first Apple World Wide Developers Conference and for seeing the renowned Apple father himself in the flesh and blood? I mean, is anyone ever ready for their first time? I don’t think so. Sure, I am ready for Mr. Jobs, clad in a black turtleneck, to command the stage and to stand before the crowd with revealing PowerPoint KeyNote slides. I am also ready for the expected 3G iPhone (aka second generation iPhone). But Steve has always got some special moves up his sleeve and for that I am not prepared. Especially since I am not in the business of Apple rumors, but there are sure a lot of them out there. Make sure to keep you browser tuned to blog.laptopmag.com for the latest news from WWDC tomorrow and to see how I feel after losing my SteveNote.

    You lose your virginity a lot, Ms. Stern. Give us the news but keep it in your pants. Looking forward to Stevie’s address. Hell, actually, I’m just looking forward to the iPhone.

    Umm… it’s a ‘Keynote’, not a ‘Powerpoint’ :)

    I’m pretty sure our dear friend Steve uses Keynote and note Powerpoint. I don’t know for sure though. Good luck with the stevenote.

    So I will try again, for a Comment that maybe gets closer to actually being let through.

    It will be interesting to read how a woman reacts to a SteveNote.

    After reading your post, it’s occurred to me that most of the aftermath is from men.

    That brings up some icky imagery.

    I apologize for the PowerPoint slip up. I need to keep my Mac and PC terms straight.

    Krackle, I kept it in my pants the entire time!
