Apple may aspire to “control” journalists in some ways, but it’s tough to prevent viewers from commenting when the world’s most-watched live stream keeps crashing, broadcasting Chinese translations over Tim Cook’s voice and creating some trippy visuals:

I’m more in shock at this awful attempt at a live stream than the new iPhone #AppleLive

#AppleLive stream is down but I got a Tinder match. Silver lining.

For the record, the problems appear to have receded: Cook’s description of “Apple Pay” just came through clearly and we’re now witnessing the Apple Watch (NOT the “iWatch”) in its multi-chained glory.
It’s accurate within plus or minus 50 milliseconds!
Still, it’s tough to avoid cracking a joke when the world’s most-respected technology company finds its own messaging efforts hobbled by…technology.
Oh, and this one was amazing. Great work, Denny’s.
