I don't know why I find this so funny but I do.
watch the Steve Jobs meltdown video
gizmodo.com...

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.

It's true that with the rise of Wi-Fi/3G hotspots, the Wi-Fi signal in the hall would probably be unusable. Jobs said over 500 hotspots were emanating from the audience. A real issue, though, is that we should be able to do all of these things over 3G. So when an audience member responds to Steve's requests for suggestions with "Verizon," we laugh because it's funny and we laugh because it's true.

Yes I find it funny too, it's very embarrassing so it's funny the same way someone slips on ice and lands on their butt. But what meltdown? There's no meltdown, he handles it as maturely as can be expected.

Now AFTERWARDS there may have been a meltdown we didn't see where he fired someone. He was probably just asking the audience members to turn off their wifi as a joke/excuse because they would have had a dedicated service set up for the demo if they know what they were doing, which you would hope they did.

What's even funnier is the meltdown that really happens in the video posted in the comments section. THAT's a meltdown! But you can't post it here!

I added took the "watch the meltdown" from the site, I thought we were supposed to label the articles exactly like the place we took them from?

I'll have to go back and watch the video you're talking about, it wasn't there when I first read the article.

That is a requirement for the breaking news forum to copy the title exactly. The requirement doesn't apply to other forums like this one but you probably want to have a good reason for using a different title. In this case you could have just truncated the title to something like: » Jobs had to ask everyone in the audience, repeatedly, to shut off their Wi-Fi... since the title is too long to post the whole thing.

In any case my criticism of the inappropriate use of the word meltdown was directed at the original author, not you.

Don't listen to that real meltdown video in the comments if you don't like bad language, my virgin ears have been violated!


Just kidding, but the language is pretty bad.
