Phil Schiller’s Daring Stunt at Macworld NY 1999

The anticipation is palpable among Apple enthusiasts as they look forward to Phil Schiller’s presentation at the upcoming Macworld Expo.

While the specifics of his performance remain a mystery, one thing is certain: he won’t be repeating his dramatic entrance from 1999, where he jumped onto an air mattress clutching a laptop.

That stunt has already been executed by him.

Back at the ’99 Macworld event in NYC, Phil showcased the wireless and shock-resistant features of a Tangerine iBook by dropping from a height onto a mattress, securing his place in what could be called “The Demo Hall of Fame.” It may not have reached the legendary status of the Mother of All Demos, but it was certainly memorable.
