4:16 /

As he tries to show off features of the new iPhone 4, Apple CEO Steve Jobs' Wi-Fi connection fails twice, bringing his World Wide Developers Conference keynote to an uncomfortable standstill.

[ Music ] ^M00:00:08 >> Alright. We're going to switch over to some backups here. I have a feeling we might have the same problem. ^M00:00:15 [ pause in speaking ] ^M00:00:27 [ laughter ] ^M00:00:31 There we go. Yes I know that we don't want to sell you a [inaudible] network. ^M00:00:33 [ pause in speaking ] ^M00:00:39 Well geeze I don't like this. Alright let's go back to primaries. I'm afraid I have a problem and I'm not going to be able to show you much here today. Try one more time here. Boy I'm sorry guys I don't know what's going on.^M00:01:03 [ background chatter ] ^M00:01:19 >> Scott got any suggestions? ^M00:01:20 [ laughter and background chatter ] ^M00:01:23 >> Verizon ^M00:01:24 [ laughter and applause ] ^M00:01:29 >> We're actually on Wi-Fi here. So alright. Now before I begin number 6 our guys were running around like crazy backstage as you might imagine [laughter] and we figured out why my demo crashed because there are 570 Wi-Fi bay stations operating in this room [laughter]. Ok we can't deal with that so we have 2 choices either I've got some more demos that are really great that I'd like to show you, so we either turn off all the stuff and see the demos, or we give up and I don't show you the demos. Would you like to see the demos or not? ^M00:02:11[ applause and cheering ] ^M00:02:14 Ok so here's the deal. Let's turn up the lights in the hall. Several 100 of these are these Mi-Fi things too by the way, so all you bloggers need to turn off your bay stations, turn off your Wi-Fi. Every notebook I'd like you to put them down on the floor and all of you look around I'd like you to police each other. If you want to see the demos shut off all your laptops, turn off all of these Mi-Fi bay stations and put them on the floor please. ^M00:02:43 [ applause ] ^M00:02:47 Hey Johnny ^M00:02:50 [ applause and cheering ] ^M00:03:02 This never freezes up so you guys have them turned up all you want. Come on let's get them off please. Hey Johnny how ya doing? >> I'm good; I'm good how are you [laughter]? >> I'm doing ok except for these guys that aren't turning their Wi-Fi off [laughter]. >> [Inaudible] isn't it? >> Yeah you know this is amazing. I grew up here in the US with the Jetson's and with Star Trek and Communicators and just dreaming about this, you know dreaming about video calling and it's real now [applause and cheering]. Did you have this kind of stuff in England? >> I grew up watching exactly the same TV shows. You know I used to love that sort of wonderful sort of optimistic view of the future and its real now isn't it? >> It's real, especially when people turn their Wi-Fi stuff off ^M00:04:10 [ laugher and applause ]
