Apple Event: Yay, We Didn't Crash

Image for article titled Apple Event: Yay, We Didn't Crash

If there's been a sore spot on Gizmodo's track record, it's been that every time there's an Apple event, our site slowed or plain died. Not today. We got help from friends at Automattic (who both hosted and did the coding for the liveblog), and despite all the clicking you refresh-happy readers did, the liveblog stayed up and fast the whole show. Pretty cool. Thanks for reading, even though we crashed in the past, and I can assure you, things are only going to get better going forward. And now, the adrenaline has worn off, and it's time to nap. Gnite. (PS That's a photo of Steve Jobs looking cool like Fonzie, while Starbucks dude was droning on about how they open 7 shops a day.)

Your coverage was fucking AWESOME.

I've always been a little disappointed in the Giz's coverage of Apple events in the past, but today you really did it just right.

The live site was just what I needed. Put it on auto reload and just sat back reading it.

Better than "the other site" where the new coverage was in the frikkin bottom of the article...
