MACWORLD Tokyo Keynote Web Cast Changed From Live Stream To "On Demand Archive"

MACWORLD Tokyo Keynote Web Cast Changed From Live Stream To "On Demand Archive"

by , 3:00 PM EST, February 20th, 2001

First it was announced that Apple would be offering a satellite feed of the MACWORLD Tokyo keynote address at a new Apple retailer in Croydon, a suburb of London. Then Apple posted a Web page with information on a live QuickTime stream of the event for those in the States. The text from that page read (for the record):

Steve Jobs Keynote - Tokyo 2001
February 22 - 10am (Tokyo)
February 21 - 5pm (PT)

Watch Apple CEO Steve Jobs deliver the MACWORLD Expo keynote address from Tokyo's Makuhari Messe Event Hall. See the live Web cast right here exclusively in QuickTime. It's an event you won't want to miss.

That page was subsequently taken down for a couple of days and replaced with news that the event would be available as an archived file:

Watch Apple CEO Steve Jobs deliver the MACWORLD Expo keynote address from Tokyo's Makuhari Messe Event Hall. See the video-on-demand archive right here exclusively in QuickTime.

This means that the event won't be available to those in the States until after it is over. You can find information on the stream at Apple's Web site. If we can find a local satellite feed, we will offer live coverage of the event. If you know of such a feed in the Austin, Tx. area, please let our editor know.

The Mac Observer Spin:

There are three ready explanations for this change. Technical difficulties, paying for the stream was deemed prohibitive, or Apple had to change it due to their agreement with PC World, the new retailer where they will be offering the live satellite feed. It doesn't really matter though, as it is something those of us who want to see the event will just have to deal with.
