Apple to Live Stream Mac Media Event [Updated]

| News

Apple announced Wednesday morning that it will be live streaming its Mac-related special media event. The announcement means anyone that didn’t get an invitation can tune in and watch the company’s announcements from their computer as they happen.

Since Apple will be using its HTTP Live Streaming feature, viewers will need Mac OS X 10.6 or higher and Safari, or an iPhone or iPod touch running iOS 3.0 or higher, or an iPad.

Apple will be hosting its special media event starting at 10 AM pacific time today from its Cupertino campus. Be sure to check in with TMO for our live event coverage.

Update: Apple pulled the Live Streaming announcement, so now it’s unclear if the event really will be streamed as it happens. So far, Apple hasn’t offered any clarification.

Do you see the contradiction there?

Bah.

If they stream it, and you don’t have a Mac, Leo Laporte will most likely have coverage (plus the appropriate snark) at TWiT. He’s usually good like that.

What’s the contradiction? You need a modern Mac or some other Apple device. Did APPLE say “anyone” or was that Jeff Gamet for TMO.

Either way, I hope that we get a text based live blog from someone because I don’t have a modern mac.

But I don’t feel slighted either…

Noted that the online Apple Store is offline awaiting the new stuff! Great fun this.

why in hell do I need a mac and safari and 10.6 and who knows what just to watch a streaming video?

Why not just do it in Flash grin

Why not just do it in Flash

Because, if they did it in Flash, we’d all have to disable our “ClicktoFlash” or other Flashblockers and thus render our www-browsing and CPU efficiencies too sludged up with Flashcrapifications. :(
