The man behind the success of Apple has certainly come a long way since his first apperance on TV. Though he rarely appears on TV in such interviews now-a-days his presentations for new products are much more polished then this is.

The following is another piece of coverage on the Egyptian Revolution on jboitnott.com back in 2010.
