WWDC Keynote Fail... How Did Steve Handle It? NSFW Listen to this article

The saying goes “don’t perform live with children or animals”. In 2010 it finally and officially needs to be officially changed to “Don’t go live with children, animals or technology”. And the poster-child for the new saying… Steve Jobs himself.

We’ve all been there. We’re ready to do a keynote presentation and for some reason we can’t get it started, the image is distorted or some other small glitch keeps us from being able to move forward. But when you are Steve Jobs it sure doesn’t look good when you are trying to present your latest iPhone to the world and you can’t get the demo to work. I mean its… embarrassing. (To say the least.)

So how did Stevo handle it?

I would say he did pretty well considering how many people were in the audience and were following the presentation throughout the world.

He looks especially good by comparison to how others have handled technology blunders.
