Massive 'Hiccup' During Apple's Live Demo

A rare occurrence from a company that usually has these events extremely well coordinated and planned. I second the guy at the end when upon a call for suggestions he yelled back "Verizon".

"WWDC keynotes are usually carefully orchestrated affairs. But you might have just read in our live blog how Steve Jobs had to bail on a demo because of network trouble. Awkward.

Apple attempted to do their demo over Wi-Fi, but as you can see couldn't manage to get things up and running due to overload. So Jobs had to ask everyone in the audience, repeatedly, to shut off their Wi-Fi so the show could go on. A bizarre hiccup for a company in its prime, showing off its latest wares.
