Hollywood director upsets CES press conference over teleprompter

When technology news conferences go bad, they go really bad.

Case in point: Samsung held an event at the Consumer Electronics Show on Monday to showcase its newest wares for 2014.

But when Bay's teleprompter didn't work properly, things blew up—quickly.


Twitter reaction was swift and predictable.
