Apple CrapCast

September 10th, 2014

Well, if Apple is trying to royally piss me off, then mission accomplished. I stay up to 2 a.m. to watch their live stream of the special announcement, which they have hyped for weeks—only to see that they are completely fucking it up. The picture goes out to a color-bar test screen every minute, and when the video does show, it has Chinese language translation over it—and I’m not in Fracking China. I hate idiots who try to “help” me by geographically locating my IP and giving me a language I cannot understand. I expect this from 3rd-rate web sites, but Apple?

Goddamned unbelievable.

    I’m in the USA and the Chinese interpreter is on my feed too so I’m pretty sure that you are hearing her because she is interpreting there at the conference not because some idiots are trying to help you. As far as the access issue that’s due to the server you are on. Apple has nothing to do with it.

    After about 30 or 40 minutes, the problems became much less prevalent, and the Chinese language disappeared. It would still freeze at times, but pausing and clicking “Play Live,” or simply reloading the page, would usually fix it. But for most of the iPhone presentation, I was ready to throw my Mac through a wall…

    The Chinese lady was on my live feed here in Cali too. And it crapped out.

    Apple watch reminds me of the 1st gen iPod, or worse. Too bulky!

    $350 is a bit high. Gonna pass though the SDK might be interesting.

    iPhone 5S looks a bit better, but my old iPod Touch is still soldiering on. I ~totally~ and inexcusably missed the boat with the AppStore there, so I’m even more afraid of trying my luck there.

    (but I should get over it and just try my luck anyway of course)

    Apple isn’t floating my boat as much as it used to.

    Maybe their iPod event will be more interesting.

    But the way things look now I’ll be getting a Tegra K1 tablet, probably the Nexus 9 when it comes out. My iPad certainly needs replacement now.
