I was hoping Apple's App would at least give public access to event news, but alas no :(

I usually go with Engadget but may give Ars Technica a spin this time. I've also become a Jim Dalrymple fan recently so I may use his site at loopinsight.com

www.TheVerge.com usually has great coverage from Joshua Topolsky

Just may follow The Beard myself. Despite the fact that he's Canadian.




I jest folks..I jest!

I use Engadget myself. As long as the site doesn't lag it's decent.

usually I use engadget. It's pretty good.

I refresh this page constantly throughout the keynote:
http://www.apple.com/pr/library/

Nothing else.

Seriously?? interesting... does it keep updating with the various products as they are shown off on stage?

For the live blogs I keep both Engadget and The Verge up. I prefer The Verge but engadget will sometimes say something they omit and vice versa.

For audio commentary I watch twit.tv live. I love hearing Leo Laporte's over-reactions balanced by Alex Lindsey's positive reactions and Andy Inhatko's level headedness.

Then after, whenever it's put up, I'll listen to 5by5's Hypercritical with John Siracusa's insane critic.

I've found the verge has really good live blog coverage for a lot of tech events, so I go with them.

Of course, if you have the patience the best is going spoiler free and watching the video stream Apple posts later in the day.

I tried that before actually. But it's almost impossible to do. You can even browse the internet at all on Apple keynotes. Just about any place on the web that reports anything at all reports the stuff Apple releases right then. Also when I went to Apples site to watch the presentation when it was posted, I couldn't get to it without seeing almost every major thing released before even watching the video.

Someone posted on the forum the other day that no live blogging would be allowed at WWDC. Is this an antiquated rule that nobody pays attention to or is it new this year? Could obviously screw up live blogging if so :/

Where does Apple post the keynote and approximately when? If it was up around 8pm EST I could easily avoid spoilers at work and watch it when I got home.

Oh, it's incredibly difficult to do. It's basically having to lock yourself in a box for the day until someone comes along and pokes you with a stick saying it's safe to come out.

Thankfully, I don't go to apples site to check when it's posted. In the spoiler free threads that start on these forums, people are kind enough to post direct links.

The Verge probably, if they can keep up with the load without server issues.

Though, going to try my best and wait for the keynote to appear online.

Is it too obsessive to follow multiple sites? I usually do engadget, but I'm thinking this year I'll add the verge and macrumors to the mix

You really ought to check out the Apple Keynotes podcast feed, then. The keynote will just show up in iTunes or your favorite podcast program when it's put up.

I really like gdgt's coverage. Their servers have never failed for me.

I've also used The Verge before but their servers don't seem to be reliable.

I'll be at work that day all day so I should be good. Plus I'll just use MacRumors spoiler free article they did. Have it bookmarked so I'll just get off work and go to that to see if it was posted yet.

I've heard it doesn't show up in iTunes almost a day after the keynote (I could be wrong though, just going by what I heard).

The Verge said that they have moved to Syllabus instead of ScribbleLive, which has failed them miserably in the past.

I usually have live.twit.tv up along with The Verge and gdgt. And of course Twitter for reactions.

I've posted this in another thread but it seems to also fit in here. This website is claiming to have a live stream of the event ( how live it will actually be I don't know but no harm in checking it out) : http://www.wwdclive.com/#
