    They were on wifi only and there were 570 wifi base stations set up in that auditorium.

    Who knows? I'm not saying Apple is infalible. I just think an issue like that could've happened to anyone. I hate AT&T with a passion, but I don't think todays issue had anything to do with them. As nice as that new display is, the OS is a dealbreaker.

    As much as I dislike Steve Jobs...we all know that the connection issues weren't the phones fault. Look at what happened during the Android keynote at Google I/O.

    That was a Bluetooth issue not a WiFi issue.

    That's besides the point. Point is that mishaps happen...doesn't mean the device is crap.

    It means either that or the WiFi at Apple headquarters is crap.

    The latter is tougher to believe.

    Go figure. It doesn't want to work when he is demo'ing it. Even Apple's phones aren't immune from Murphy's law.

    You've got a point there. But at a cell phone keynote you think'd you'd have those bases covered. I mean, they are supposed to be "engineers" right? I know id have a fully secured and operational wifi if I was debuting something that relied upon it. Believe me.

    It wasn't bandwidth...not much you can do about interference when there are some 500+ wifi devices/access points in the same room.

    Then why allow them? If we are smart enough to realize it would be a wifi clusterfart, surely apple engineers should.

    Same reason they allowed bluetooth devices at the Google I/O conference...probably just an oversight.

    Without wifi there'd be no liveblogging, and therefore no crazy amount of hype while everyone is watching engadgets stream. It's good for apple's hype to have the livebloggers.

    That was my thought too. BT or Wired Tether (lets face it, in a room full of devs, there's bound to be a lot of jailbroken iPhones) or maybe some 3G cards.
