My old boss Eric S is speaking…his style is a little different – he is talking about “cloud computers” providing “html, xml, data services” – most notably says “this product is going to be hot” – really just a short little set of comments to show support.
And who comes next? Jerry Yang from Yahoo. His comments are more promoting of yahoo (as opposed to eric schmidt’s more techy comments). But they are just as light, and also simply a show of support.
Having both execs on stage shows apple’s increasing muscle…and that there is still consumer power in the yahoo brand (as much as they’ve been maligned in the past year…).
