Apple's "Let's talk iPhone" event video posted, how did CEO Tim Cook fare?

Posted: , by Daniel P.

Apple's
Well, there wasn't a "one more thing..." or any other iconic phrase coming out of the first major keynote that CEO Tim Cook had to endure instead of Steve Jobs, but it all went like a dress rehearsal.

Apple wasn't short on superlatives about any product or service they announced or reiterated tonight, hoping to create the same kind of aura all Apple events with Steve Jobs have managed to pull off so far.

Did they succeed? We'll let you be the judge, as Apple just posted the whole keynote video on its website. It is about an hour and a half long and, of course, you'll need the Quicktime plugin to watch it.

Overall, it was more of a team effort rather than the one man show that Steve Jobs's presentations usually developed into, and it might be an indication of how Tim Cook intends to run the company. How do you think the new CEO fared handling the event announcements?

My favorite is how Apple talked about their profit margin. Basically, telling all Apple fanboys thank you for not wanting more out of your phones, but just to buy by brand. LOL! Nexus Prime, please save me from the despair. Drooooooid!

um thanks for ur valuable input… jk… but personally i think tim cook as a speaker handled it pretty well, and a lot of excitement was generated… personally i am disappointed with no iphone 5… i will still get the 4s because gosh knows i f i dont like it i can sell it on craigslsit and get two of my choice of windows/android… i really hope, as one rumor stated, that apple will not release an iphone 5 in january though…

The phone was not the upgrade people anticipated but you would be very naive to think its game over.

For what Tim Cook had to work with, he did a pretty good job. Not saying much BC he pretty much let the entire world down...Actually Phil Schiller let everyone down

its funny how these apple lovers think the iphone 4S is the greatest smartphone of all time. They should pay more attention to android.

I expected a much different device than what we got. No screen increase, no redesign,no extra colors,no LTE/wimax,jus more storage,slightly better camera,and processor. I jus bought the gs2 on ATT,and won't be getting an iPhone 4s. I'm disappointed in apple for this one,still love my iPad 2 though.

I agree 100%

He squeezed out his last magical iTurd and bounced before anyone (at the time) noticed! He still looks like the genius!

Who the f**k cares how a person does talking? I don't care if its Steve Jobs or Obama on stage. As long as they announce what they are suppose to, the world will not end because Jobs isn't up there.

Apple will never again have the iconic figure that Steve Jobs was for the company. The man could make you think that a rock was the greatest thing ever and you need to have it ASAP!! I don't care what people think as far as OS goes or features offered. You cannot contend that the man was a marketing genius!
The bad thing about him stepping down is that Tim Cook, or whomever takes over in the future will always be under his shadow thus resulting in them always being looked at to acheive something greater, when in fact, it cannot be attained.

Anyone notice how there was much less cheering than usual? Seems like Cook doesn't have the magic that Jobs had.

Look we can't expect him to be steve jobs but he presented the device very clearly. I am happy with that.

Quite true. But it was still pretty disappointing. Not because of Tim because it was quite well presented, but it just wasn't the phone people really expected. I mean, sure it's an improvement, but it took them how long to show all this? Everyone expected a much better device.
