    I was watching the Apple event from yesterday morning on the Apple events site today. When I was watching I noticed that the presenter (Phil Schiller) made a clumsy slip up when rounding up the new features.
    I thought I heard his say that 'IOS 5 is the best phone we've ever made'. At first I thought I missheard but going back, I realised I was definitely right.

    Watch the video;

    http://www.apple.com/apple-events/september-2012/

    It happens at 52 mins 18 seconds. (52:18)

    Watch it and see what you think.

    I find it quite amusing :D

    Can you blame him for being nervous though? I would be if I was introducing any product of that caliber.

    Obviously, I think we all would. I just think that overall, it should have been a bit more professional. That is his job and he should be unveiling it proudly and with confidence. I don't blame him, nerves often do overcome us, I just find it rather amusing. :)

    When was the last time you presented something on stage in front of 300+ people?

    Give the guy a break, he's only human.

    And not for nothing. But it's Phil Schiller. No Alan. :D

    Steve Jobs has made some minor slip-ups too on his keynotes.

    I thought it was funny that they kept showing Al Gore in the audience.

    Saying "iPhone 5 is the best phone we've ever made" at all is a bit redundant though, no? Every new iPhone has improved on the last, so I think it was fairly obvious :p

    Indeed.

    Slip up? Perhaps he should take a step back next time before criticizing someone on such a minor mis-step.
