Yesterday, Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos appeared for his congressional antitrust hearing before the House Judiciary Committee's antitrust panel via videoconference. He appeared alongside some big names like Google Sundar Pichai, Facebook's Mark Zuckerberg, and Apple Tim Cook.

Jeff Bezos was grilled intensely later in the meeting, but it looked he like struggled a bit initially with 'technical difficulties'. Bezos escaped a lot of questioning for about an hour due to a technical glitch.

Obviously, technology isn't perfect and reliable all the time and even the world's richest man couldn't escape it. But while his counterparts were being questioned, Bezos was seen casually reaching for a snack while on camera. Here, check it out -

And once he was back on camera for questioning, Bezos forgot to unmute himself, Yes, the world's richest man suffered the embarrassing gaffe while responding to questions from Rep. Greg Steube. 'Mr Bezos?..... 'You're on mute,' Steube said. 

Overall, it's safe to say that the congressional hearing was no different from video calls we ourselves have these days for work. It was plagued with technical difficulties where either somebody was on mute or someone was constantly getting disconnected. 

All this just goes to show how all this advanced technology is still not good enough to handle a video call properly during a pandemic.
