THE LIGHTER SIDE: Steve Jobs introduces WiFi to the masses with a hula hoop

This clip was taken from a Sony Hi8 HandyCam recording of the 1999 NYC MacWorld keynote address.

Steve Jobs wakes the original Tangerine iBook from sleep and innocently demonstrates web surfing. Unbeknownst to everyone is that he is doing so wirelessly… until he picks up the iBook and continues to surf the internet while walking around the stage! Jobs then comically demonstrates the wireless capabilities of the original iBook with a HULA HOOP!
