Mad Dog Keynote

After some Pacific Time to GMT transforming i found out that, assuming i don't wanna do my homework (which is likely when Macworld is involved) I can watch the Keynote LIVE online!!

Any idea where i can find it?

I dont knows where but...

I dont know where you can watch it live, but Apple usually puts up a recording of the keynote on their site soon after it has finished.

It means that you can do your homework and then watch the keynote Happy

I don't think it is streamed online...

I remember one o' the last big Apple things - you know, the one with the crushingly disappointing lack of anything - wasn't broadcast live anywhere. It was 'blogged live' by a bunch of people, but I think Apple prevents live broadcasts on purpose to build hype; they may be experts at a lot of things, but it's probably hype that they're best at.

Possible sites

In reply to: Mad Dog Keynote

Yeah, live broadcast is against the policies of apple, but a number of sites do use those cellphone-like network cards to blog what he says live. Here's the one I plan to use:

It won't be streamed live

In reply to: Mad Dog Keynote

I am 99.9% sure of it as they have never allowed live footage. But alot of the major MAC sites are allowed to blog live the keynote so you get the play-by-play.

I could be wrong, but I feel confident that is the answer.

Brilliant Idea ignored

In reply to: It won't be streamed live

Somebody in a podcast (pretty sure it was not BOL) suggested after the last one that they should broadcast it live to the Apple stores. I think that is a really good idea, and ensuring enough bandwith for only those locations would not be difficult, whereas trying to provide a feed for everyone on the internet who wants to watch live WOULD be difficult.

In general we need a better system for transmitting and buffering live events. I would be very interested in watching the keynote in near-real time, but I wouldn't mind if it filled a buffer (think youtube, but it obviously cannot progress passed what is current). Then if I progress ahead of the buffer it pauses, I could pause it without loosing the data that's already buffered, and you can rewind and fast forward within the buffered portion. Then at the end, you should be able to transfer the buffer into a permanent file so that you can put a copy on a mobile device. This would make sense for sports, news events, etc. Any thoughts, or better yet is there a product that already does this and it just hasn't gotten ubiquitous adoption?
