Google's I/O keynote and talks were streamed live. They were made available on any platform, on any OS, and on any web browser. They were also consumed by millions of people without a hitch.
It's 2016, and Apple still hasn't figured out how to do that.
The world has changed since the 90s. But Apple is still stuck in the delusion that there's something special about artificially limiting access to their keynote events.
There's absolutely no reason, today, why events can't be streamed live and made available to anyone with an Internet connection and a modern web browser. The power of the open web and advances in web technology has made this a reality.
We are way past the caveman era of the web. Apple, however, refuses to evolve past that era.
