    "We design the keynotes so that the big reveal of the product happens around 40 minutes into the presentation," Forstall revealed. "When the big image of the product appears on screen, we want the time shown to be close to the actual time on the audience's watches. But we know we won't hit 40 minutes exactly."

    "So you add a couple of minutes," Jon said.

    "Yeah! And for the iPhone, we made it 42 minutes. It turned out we were pretty accurate with that estimate, so for the iPad, we made it 41 minutes. And there you are – the secret of the magic time."

    So there you go, folks. That's the the secret behind Apple's recurring numbers. And Jon, you're on a roll, but you may want to stay away from any pan-Pacific flights for the time being. There's an island out there with your name on it.
