At about 10:06 on Sept. 9, I was sitting on my couch, iPad in hand and laptop on lap, ready to find out whether all of those rumors were true, when suddenly everything on my television screen went black. Assuming something went wrong with my Apple TV, I loaded up Apple’s live stream on my MacBook Pro. Nothing. I tried it on my iPad. Blank.
As it turned out, it wasn’t my technology, or even a poor Internet connection in my neighborhood. It was Apple’s fault.
