Steve Jobs will forever be remembered for his contributions to technology and business, but there's another, slightly more whimsical, distinction the Apple founder was known for. We're speaking of course of his "boom." During live demonstrations, Jobs was known to punctuate explanations of particularly exciting features by exclaiming a mighty "boom." The "booms" hit their peak with the 2003 WWDC keynote with 37 booms in total, but the trend continued until Job's final public presentation at the 2010 WWDC.

You can watch a super cut of every one of Steve Jobs' "booms" below thanks to YouTube user EverySteveJobsVideo. Below the video you'll find a list of how many times Jobs said the word at each individual event, also compiled by EverySteveJobsVideo. Enjoy. Boom.
