Microsoft Blue Screens At CES Keynote

This is priceless:

During a demonstration of digital photography with a soon-to-be-released Nikon camera, a Windows Media Center PC froze and wouldn't respond to Bill Gates' pushing of the remote control.

Later in the 90-minute presentation, a product manager demonstrated the ostensible user-friendliness of a video game expected to hit retail stores in April, Forza Motor Sport. But instead of configuring a custom-designed race car, the computer monitor displayed the dreaded "blue screen of death" and warned, "out of system memory."

This isn't the first time Microsoft has gotten a BSOD at a big show. It happened in 1998 at the spring Comdex when they were showing of Windows 98. Check out the video here.
