There's nothing like a Steve Jobs keynote address to get the tech world buzzing.
Jobs, a rare breed of tech CEO who also doubles as a compelling public speaker, has used his keynote platforms to introduce his company's most important products for years now. Over the past decade alone, so-called "Stevenotes" have brought us the iPod, the iPhone and the iPad, which respectively brought portable digital music players, smartphones and tablet computers to the mass market. Jobs will also be on hand at the Worldwide Developers Conference next week to introduce Apple's new cloud service, as well as the next generation of its iOS mobile operating system.
