Microsoft is holding an event at Redmond where it is discussing the next chapter of Windows. As if the announcements weren’t boring enough , the live streaming is also crawling at snail’s speed. The company, which has one of the best cloud services, has also failed to deliver seamless live webcast of its event to the public.
People on Twitter have expressed their frustration. Some tweets are amusing.

Hey Cortana, keep the stream up.

“Hey Cortana, will you ask MS to have better live stream next time?” #Windows10

Cortana: looks like you are streaming an event, would you like me to show you how to do it over YouTube?

This reminds us about the Apple’s iPhone event last year, which was also a complete failure. Microsoft’s live streaming isn’t that bad, to be honest. It will be interesting to see if some technology giant makes fun of Microsoft’s streaming capability, like Samsung had done with Apple.
