Steve Jobs has a Bad Day!

Steve Jobs has a Bad Day!

June 8, 2010  |  iPhone

This, from the “Whew, I’m glad it’s not just me!” department.  Yesterday, Apple head honcho Steve Jobs was in San Francisco, trying to show off the newest iPhone.  “Trying” is the operative word.  Try as he might, he couldn’t convince it to display web pages for a comparison demo with the previous version of the iPhone because too many computers were clogging the wireless network.

“Well, jeez, I don’t like this,” he complained to the crowd.  Jobs tried one, two, three times … And we all know that it’s three times you’re out ;-)

Check out the video link below, kids…Suddenly, I don’t feel so bad about my high tech issues.  You?

  1. I didn’t even watch the video. I just followed two live bloggers in real time during the event. Cnet.com and I can’t remember the other. One had to put her laptop away and switch to text messaging so she could keep posting. The other was using a 3G Rocket Stick type device so she could stay on her computer. It was really quite funny to see happening in real time. Bad Radio meets Bad IT. My “perfect storm”.

  2. Sean – You are my favourite IT expert… Always there with the right comment on the right story at the right time. Not surprised you saw the video. Thanks so much for the techie-wekkie explanation re: exactly what happened. I think Steve Jobs should hire YOU to be project manager on the NEXT iPhone unveiling! As for buying the new phone… That IS a whole different blog topic right there. Maybe even tomorrow’s blog topic… ;-) Thanks, my IT friend!

  3. It was a moment to be savored for all time. It wasn’t all the wifi devices that caused the problem, it was the reporters using these special media cards in their cameras and computers that basically turn them into wireless routers like you have at home. The iPhone couldn’t decide which network to connect to because it had over 500 choices! Don’t know how anyone could have foreseen that. I’m sure a few IT guys got fired over it anyway. He looked like an idiot up there when everything just had to work. Shows how much things have changed in a year. This didn’t happen last year when he showed off the 3G iPhone’s speed over wireless. I’m sure the new iPhone 4’s WiFi works just fine. It’s not what I’m buying the new phone for anyway. That’s a whole different blog topic right there.
