Listening to the Google I/O Day 2 Keynote in the background, and i really have to wonder. A: who plans to do a press conference depending on wireless internet access, and B: who plans to do a press conference depending on a bluetooth keyboard. _Especially_ B. I've heard of plenty of public demos that have ground to a halt because all the attendees were swamping the local WiFi, but this is the first particular case i've heard where they couldn't even get their keyboard to work because of interference.

Clearly they can't really get around the wireless issues for the phones themselves (though maybe 3G is less susceptible to local overloading that WiFi) but in every case possible they really ought to be depending on LANs and wired connections.
