Fake Apple Keynote

It is amazing what a cult of personality Steve Jobs has become. It has gotten to the point where speculators not only try to figure out what Jobs will say but now they are even writing a full speech (or at least notes) in advance of Jobs presenting.

Credit Wikipedia as the location of this "fake" speech and TechCrunch for alerting me to its existence.

Here is an excerpt:
