    Default How to watch the 10-4 event live?

    I suppose most of the servers will be overloaded... Any suggestions?

    I've not seen any word of a live broadcast. The best we can hope for is a live commentary/blog from someplace like or .

    The announcement is being held on Apple's Cupertino campus where, one would think, they would have better ("tighter") control over wifi access, etc.

    I'd would be great if Apple would broadcast it like they did several years ago. But as I recall, that appears to have been a one-time shot.

    I always tune in here for the live blog and wait for Apple to post the video on their site. Even though I know whats coming I still like to watch it.

    Yeah, Apple always posts the keynote in iTunes - but it often takes days to show up there. By that time, it's old news that's been re-told a hundred times.

    Live feed would be the way to go, IMHO. #doubtful

    We've all been there.

    As far as I know, Apple has never (with that single exception a few years back) broadcast their announcements live. Not sure why - maybe it adds to the "exclusivity" or something.

    My thought has always been to let the people see it for themselves. With the "invitation only" model, you get people blogging and tweeting and creating a buzz, but everything that gets broadcast is filtered through the blogger/tweeter's view.

    The reason why is that they like to edit the announcements down and try to make them more concise. Also, most people are working at the time the announcement is being made, so they probably don't see a reason to broadcast live at that time.

    I usually follow a few live blogs. TiPb, Engadget, Ars Technica, Wall Street Journal & thisismynext are worth checking out. I forget which one is quickest at posting photos.

    Like I said I don't mind watching it even after knowing whats going on. I agree 100% though I do wish they would do a live stream of the show.

    I follow live blogs, but only from someone who is actually at the event. It doesn't make any sense to me to follow a live blog by someone who is reading someone else's live blog and retyping or commenting on it.

    Couldn't agree more Alli! Thus why I ALWAYS tune into TiPb for live blogs.

    I really despise Engadget... But it's mostly because of their commenting community being comprised of the stupidest people on the internet. I strongly prefer Gizmodo, but naturally their live blogs for Apple events are not the best. Haha

    Funny, that's why I usually go elsewhere. Nobody from TiPb will be at the event. They just follow the same live blogs I follow directly - save time and cut out the middle man.

    They also post it on apple.com a few hours after the announcement.

    Since when did Gizmodo get back on the invite list? IIRC, Engadget & MacWorld are the quickest with photos.

    Giz is only back on the invite list because whoever bought the iPhone 4 prototype no longer works there, and afaik that's only for this coming event.

    That said, Macworld is generally the fastest.

    What time can we expect the live blog? I can hide my phone in my desk drawer while I pretend to be working!

    Is this event synchronized to Cupertino, Ca. time? You guys in Aussie are a day ahead of us here in the U.S., right? How about some early feedback on sales impact?
