Steve Jobs WWDC 2010 Keynote Video – Wi-Fi Issue

Earlier today during the Steve Jobs keynote at , there was a hilarious moment where when demonstrating the device, Steve Jobs had some problem while loading NYT on the 4.

However, instead of getting angry or panicking, Steve Jobs instead asked the attendees to switch off their Wi-Fi devices so that he could access the internet.

If you were not at the event, here is a video of Steve Jobs WWDC 2010 Keynote when the Wi-Fi issue happened on the iPhone 4. Video after the jump.

iPhone 4 Features And Specifications

The Steve Jobs keynote at the WWDC 2010 just got over, and the highly anticipated iPhone 4 has been officiallyannounced. The new iPhone 4 is 28% slimmer than the previous generation iPhone. The device is only 9.3mmiPhone 4 thick, and is arguably the thinnest smartphone on the planet right now. The iPhone 4 screen size at 3.5-inch is same as that of the iPhone 3GS, but packs in 4 times more the resolution.

Apple has used the Retina Displaytechnology on the iPhone 4. The Retina Displayuses an IPS panel for better color rendering, and viewing angles. The pixel density of the Retina Displayis 326 pixel per inch, which is 26 pixels more than what the human eye can differentiate. The demo of the Retina Displaywhich Steve Jobs gave surely looked impressive!

The new iPhone 4 also has a steel band running across the sides of the phone. This steel band is a part of the phone engineering as it acts as a part of the antenna system. The new iPhone 4 duly covers the connectivity field by offering quad band HSDPA/HSUPA, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, and Bluetooth. The same A4 chip used on the iPad powers the iPhone 4.

The A4 chip has been made by Apple themselves, and it is definitely a powerhouse! The iPad redefined the meaning of fastthanks to this A4chip, and we can’t even imagine what wonders it will do under the iPhone 4G’s hood. Apple has also beefed up the battery capacity of the iPhone 4. Apple quotes the standby battery life of the device at 300 hours. The iPhone 4 will also feature dual microphones for noise cancellation.

Steve Jobs Says He Respects and Admires Adobe, Just Hates Flash

Steve Jobs has been very clear about why he does not allow Adobe’s Flash player on the and , however, there has been a tug of war between both Adobe and Apple over this issue.


A recent note sent by a user called Joshua to Steve Jobs, however got a different reply. The note asked Steve Jobs:

Do you hate Adobe and their products (Photoshop, Illustrator, etc) or do you just hate their view on Flash.

In reply, Steve Jobs said:

No, I respect and admire Adobe. We just choose to not have Flash on our devices.

That’s a pretty good way to clear up things, and I am amazed that a CEO of Steve Jobs stature takes out time to answer such questions.

Steve Jobs: The Times They Are A Changin’

Apple-Steve-Jobs Of late, Steve Jobs has been responding to queries from random strangers with surprising regularity. Unlike most other CEOs, he doesn’t sugarcoat his words. His typical email response reads a lot like a tweet – concise and pointed. However, for once he took a break from sending one-line responses.

It all started when Gawker blogger Ryan Tate fired an angry response to Steve Jobs, after being irked by a television ad hailing the iPad as revolutionary. To his surprise, Jobs responded within a few hours. In the (heated) debate that followed, Jobs defended his stance on Adobe, porn and mobile computing in general. The entire e-mail exchange is reprinted below.

  • Ryan Tate: If Dylan was 20 today, how would he feel about your company? Would he think the iPad had the faintest thing to do with revolution?Revolutions are about freedom.
  • Steve Jobs: Yep, freedom from programs that steal your private data. Freedom from programs that trash your battery. Freedom from porn. Yep, freedom. The times they are a changin’, and some traditional PC folks feel like their world is slipping away. It is.
  • Ryan Tate: Was it a technical issuewhen Microsoft was trying to make everyone write to the Win32 API? Were you happy when Adobe went along with that? You have the chance to set the tone for a new platform. For the new phone and tablet platform. The platform of the future! I am disappointed to see it’s the same old revenge power bullshit.
    PS And yes I may sound bitter. Because I don’t think it’s a technical issue at all — it’s you imposing your morality; about porn, about trade secrets’, about technical purity in the most bizarre sense. Apple itself has used translation layers and intermediate APIs. Objective C and iTunes for Windows are testament to this. Anyone who has spent any time coding knows the power and importance of intermediate APIs.
    And I don’t like Apple’s pet police force literally kicking in my co-workers’ doors. But I suppose the courts will have the last say on that, I can’t say I’m worried.
  • Steve Jobs: You are so misinformed. No one kicked in any doors. You’re believing a lot of erroneous blogger reports.
    Microsoft had (has) every right to enforce whatever rules for their platform they want. If people don’t like it, they can write for another platform, which some did. Or they can buy another platform, which some did.
    As for us, we’re just doing what we can to try and make (and preserve) the user experience we envision. You can disagree with us, but our motives are pure.
    By the way, what have you done that’s so great? Do you create anything, or just criticize others work and belittle their motivations?

I am among those who don’t believe the closed environment that Apple is trying to popularize. In fact, what Jobs tried to portray as freedom, is actually the total opposite. I want to be able to use my device as I wish. I don’t want to be told that I can’t run an app, as it would gobble up my battery. I don’t want to be treated as a child while using a device I purchased.

Even then, I cannot but admire Jobs candidness. He appeared levelheaded (save for the arrogant jab right at the end) and firm during the argument. It’s clear from the conversation that Jobs is a man with a vision and he firmly believes in that vision. He truly believes that mobile devices will shape our future. In fact, it almost seems as if Jobs thinks that as the leading innovators in the segment it is Apple’s responsibility to be responsible.

Steve Jobs Wants You To Buy An Android If You Want Porn

AndroidWith the battle between iPhone and Android gaining serious momentum, the two parties are not leaving any chance to drag each other out. In a recent response to a customer inquiry about Apple’s policies, Steve Jobs said that users who want porn on their phones should get an Android device.

When Matthew Browning, an Apple customer, emailed Steve Jobs about unjustified removal of Mark Fiore’s application and ranted out about Apple’s recent policies regarding seemingly inappropriate apps, here is what Steve Jobs had to say:

Fiore’s app will be in the store shortly. That was a mistake.  However, we do believe we have a moral responsibility to keep porn off  the iPhone. Folks who want porn can buy and Android phone.

You know, there’s a porn store for Android. You can download nothing but porn. You can download porn, your kids can download porn. That’s a place we don’t want to go so we’re not going to go there.

To me, that is a little bit more than what we call bashing your competition. It is almost as if Jobs think of Android as a promoter of pornography and iPhone as a saint. Can somebody ask him how his views about adult apps changed so suddenly and why he allowed them in his app store for a long while before blocking them without any notice? One thing is clear though, the Android and iPhone war is much more serious than we think it is.
