There's a reason we crowned Jeff Bezos the next Steve Jobs: he's cool, composed, stylish, and bald. And now you can see his ascension in motion, as he pitched the world on the new Kindle family. Nice jacket, Jeff.

Keynotes are a lot like tennis matches. Even if the action looks impressive onscreen, nothing compares to seeing the humans in motion. Bezos does come across a little off here—a little dry, a little awkward, a little stilted. But I promise you, as someone who was sitting right in front of him yesterday, his charisma was undeniable, and perhaps impossible to capture via Flash video.
