Watch the Apple Keynote’s Network Meltdown — Gizmodo – “WWDC keynotes are usually carefully orchestrated affairs. But you might have just read in our live blog how Steve Jobs had to bail on a demo because of network trouble. Awkward. Apple attempted to do their demo over Wi-Fi, but as you can see couldn’t manage to get things up and running due to overload. So Jobs had to ask everyone in the audience, repeatedly, to shut off their Wi-Fi so the show could go on. A bizarre hiccup for a company in its prime, showing off its latest wares.”

Booher Banter: Presentation Disasters: Recovery Tips – "So far so good. Then just as I clicked on the one and only slide that they really needed to see (versus the other humorous ones), the computer froze. The remote would not move it backward or forward.

During the presentation, his computer ran out of batteries and he had forgotten his power supply. The material he was presenting to the group abruptly stopped and he was forced to continue the seminar without the benefit of his slides. Unfortunately, the rest of the seminar was not well received, as the presenter never truly recovered from losing his material. What a nightmare!"

6 Mistakes you should never make as a Presenter — Free as in Freedom – "I believe live demos are a recipe for presentation disaster. Forcing yourself to do a live demo is like saying, "Look at how much of a man I am! I'm willing to put my presentation to risk with my bravery!". One of the things you want to do in a presentation, is be in absolute control. I like to minimize the number of things that are out of my control in a presentation situation. Patchy network connections, a bad day with the demo software, and 'errs and ummhs' at the time of presenting are all things beyond my control."
