Apple's live stream fails during the first hour of the company's event

So what did these frustrated Apple fans do? They dusted themselves off, stood up on their two feet, and sent out countless tweets complaining about the lost feed. So many complained in fact, that the number of tweets from those shut out of watching the event, soon eclipsed the number of tweets sent out about the new iPhone 6 models.
The problems with the live stream continued for well over an hour, and prevented viewers from learning all about the Apple Pay payment system. When video did pop up during talk about Apple Pay, some of it was merely older images recorded earlier, showing attendees taking their seats before the event kicked off.
The second hour of the event managed to be streamed without too many problems, allowing viewers to see the unveiling of Apple Watch as it occurred.
- Display 4.7" 750 x 1334 pixels
- Camera 8 MP / 1.2 MP front
- Processor Apple A8, Dual-core, 1400 MHz
- Storage 128 GB
- Battery 1810 mAh(14h 3G talk time)

Apple's way. First to be available only to their customers (probably continuing keep them captive) and second proving their capabilities of preparing this event (you will find inaide hardware and software delivered today). LOL

Except one thing. Not even 5% of people who watched Apples event could be 100% of the people who watched Samsungs lol.

"And these are consumers who had turned to the Safari browser on their Mac or iDevice to watch the event. After all, Apple had decided not to stream the event on PCs and on Google's Chrome browser." Serves em right. Be dicks about who can watch your event, and you deserve to have your feed screw up.
