US CONTENT PROVIDER Time Warner admits it has "run out of beer" as its Ipad apps servers crashed under the weight of demand.
Apple's fanbois must be crying into their cappuccinos as apparently Time Warner's servers fried themselves due to the demands of live-streaming. The company has had to temporarily halve the number of Ipad channels it offers from 32 to just 15 in order to "ease strain on the authentication process," wrote Time Warner Cable's Jeff Simmermom.
We thought Ipads were going to be deployed as viable business tools but it seems that all Apple's fanbois want to do is stream live TV shows instead.
"This will enable us to offer at least some sort of an experience to our customers while we get a fix in place," blogged Simmermom.
"We'll add the other 17 channels back in as soon as we can fix the underlying issue," he added.
Time Warner didn't say which channels it has taken off but it does want to add more channels in the future.
Simmermom apologised by saying it is Time Warner's first foray into the Apple app world and he likened server disruption to running out of beer at a party. As much as we like our technology, we'd rather miss Time Warner content than run out of beer at a party, so it can't be that bad.
The Apple Time Warner app crashed only two days after having been announced. µ
