As the tech world and Apple enthusiasts salivate over the possibility of a radically new product announcement during Steve Jobs' special event tomorrow, the Economic Times of India compares the Apple CEO to a magician with statements like:
This Wednesday, Steve Jobs will step to the stage at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts in San Francisco and unveil a shiny new machine that may or may not change the world. In the magician's world, that's called "the reveal."
They even go so far to quote a modern icon of magic :
Even David Blaine, who is a real magician, calls Jobs "the ultimate showman who keeps the audience excited the whole way leading up to the reveal."
