LMAO @ Steve Jobs! It's absolutely ridiculous that the wifi interference actually disabled the phone though... I didn't think I could lower my expectations of Apple any further...

what a rube!

So pretty much if you got to an at$t hotspot don't expect your new iphone to work unless of course you ask everyone else to turn off there wifi since that must be the problem.

comparing apples to ...ummm...non apples

Man that guy (steve Jobs) a d*ck! makes me laugh he didn't test it before he went on stage!

I think he did Burty. he has engineered his snobby little device not to associate with 'non apple' devices, and that includes sharing a wifi connection with all of those windows based laptops.

It did not disable the phone

Jobs is such a tool. Nice little passive aggressive attack on your audience there, Jobs. Don't be mad at them because your crappy device needs its own dedicated wifi connection to work.

This is a networking engineers failure, in my opinion. They should have had dedicated bandwidth allocated for his devices. Do Airports have this functionality?

That's a great point Docnoq. That is exactly what that was.
