Article on one of the best presenter in the world:
Steve Jobs:

When the Mac book Air came out, he could have said that the Mac book Air was fast, easy to use, small and cover all the hardware specs, but Steve Jobs said this is the World’s thinnest laptop and showed an image of the laptop that was smaller than an envelope....
