Friday Fun: The unofficial One more thing (WWDC 2011 Song)

The phrase “One more thing” is such a well known term delivered at the end of Apple keynotes by CEO Steve Jobs. It’s usually just before announcing an amazing new product right at the very end. In honor of this, Cory Smith of Cardinal Media Technologies has put together a rap song entitled......One more thing (WWDC 2011 Song). Some of the lyrics are below:-

Phil Schiller told us we wouldn’t want to miss this would have been gold if there’d been more specifics so I look to Gruber discern his predictions to see if the rumors will turn into fiction damn this consumer addiction to all these gadgets and the magic within them all the designs by Jonny Ive so I guess I better check who’s blogging live can’t wait to download the developer preview

You can listen to the full song right after the break. It’s good fun and all adds nicely to the build up to WWDC 2011.
