do any of the admins know if there will be a link to the quicktime vid just like the last keynote that doesn't give away any of what happened?

That would be great! Perhaps you (an admin) could update the post above with a link once the time is nigh. Then...we can just link to that single post and not worry about any adverts or spoilers...like last time :P

I've seen this done in the past for other keynote videos - it's a really awesome way to find out about the new announcements, and I hope they'll do it this time. I watched the entire iphone announcement without reading a single news site talking about the phone. Seeing the multitouch interface demonstrated without reading descriptions first was freakin sweet!

Please, please, give us a spoiler-free article with a link to the video, that we can bookmark in advance and will be updated when the video is posted.

Great service, thank you very much. Its really hard to do but i always try to keep away from the whole internet on days like that and watch the stream, a much much better experience that way.

I'm extra excited this time because there is a real chance that osX will make it to the PC, this is 'le moment suprème'. :)

No, there isn't. I think Steve has been pretty clear on this being exaclty the opposite of their philosophy. He spent 5 minutes or so reinforcing this point at MWSF.

My friend those years have come and gone... Back in 2000, we used to get live streams of both Macworld keynotes, and I even used to go to Apple's corporate offices here in Montreal, where it was broadcast via satellite. They even had free food for all of us...

The spoiler-free version during macworld in January failed completely. While going to the page, just above it in that black line of "updates" I could see "Apple announces the iPhone". That was spoiler-full :) I warned that this might be a problem before the keynote, but was assured that the page is totaly static, which of course was not the case.

If possible, please make the page completely static this time, i.e. with no third-party dynamic frames like that from Amazon, or that line of "latest news" at the top.

Thanks! :)

In MWSF 1995? In his interview with Bill he clearly stated that the Mac (and iPod and iPhone) is a beautiful box with superior software and that Apple is mainly a software company (mentioned it 3 times). Man, i want my name on the front page if osX is OEM'ed. :)

Well anyway, its as close as we'll ever get so i'm excited, and if Apple doesn't open up osX for PC's then i'm very interested in how they will technically lock the OS to prevent us installing it on homebrew PC's.

I just wanted to express thanks (along with many others) for informing and considering those of us who (sometimes) prefer spoiler-free updates when it comes to the keynotes. I think it's great, even though on rare occassions I've been known to peek. Thanks.

I can understand them not streaming it, but I don't know why Apple don't just stick it on itunes the moment it's available. The stream is generally unusable for a day or so, and it does spoil the enjoyment of it somewhat.

A downloaded version, which you could enjoy on your :apple: TV would make great evening viewing with some popcorn and a beer (yes, I really am that sad!).

Heck, I'd even pay for it!

I myself love spoilers. I also love having the itunes/podcast videos of past events with keynotes by SJ. I have a nice little collection that I look at from time-to-time. I would think that having an appleTV would shine in these cases but alass I can't get one because I'm saving for Sony BR 300 which will be @ $500 this month. Can't wait to make use of my HDTV, finally. I already purchased Planet Earth series from BBC as my first BR buy.

No, it has been addressed quite recently. There is no way that Apple will cannibalize their hardware sales to make $10 on the sale of OS X just so they can spend $15 paying their support staff to handle all the extra work.

As to your second paragraph, they have had an intel version for 1.5 years now and you still don't see many hackintoshes. The generic driver support is so poor that many people can't get various hardware devices to run (LAN, sound, etc...) on their existing equipment and just give up or don't do it. DRM never works, but make your product hard to use on other hardware and most will never try.

I was thinking about this the other night when I was watching the D5 Jobs and Gates interview on my AppleTV. I'm trying to decide if I want to avoid the live updates or not. Usually I follow the live updates, but this year I'll have to work, and while I can probably catch most of it on my lunch break, it might be fun to just wait until after work and watch it without knowing anything...

Okay, game over, Steve Jobs and the iPhone are a lock for the cover of Time magazine in December for Man of the Year.

The question is, just what "secret features" will we find out about on Monday from the WWDC conference?

I get the feeling a lot of people will be talking about the "Vista Killer" OS next week.

Bring on the iPod killers, bring on the iPhone killers, bring on the Leopard killers, ooops the next version of Windows won't be out for another 5 or 6 years...

The iPod's free, so you're safe anyway. :D

Oooh good I haven't seen a keynote in a while. They're always fun to watch. Imagine that beefy Mac Minis were suddenly rolled out. Engadget and Gizmodo would implode.

I'm pretty glad that Apple has proceeded to hush those that claim that they're short changing their macs. Hopefully this keynote will stick it to 'em again. :p

Maybe send the link to those who subscribed via e-mail.

By the way they put the MacWorld keynote on iTunes as a podcast. Hopefully they do it again. It was a little higher resolution I think.

Dell is paying $50 for Windows and does the support, not MS. Its not that bad.

DRM never works, but make your product hard to use on other hardware and most will never try.

Agreed, they don't need DRM just crappy drivers. Dell already has a laptop that can use the Mac Mini disks because its so similar to it, Apple hardware isn't that special anymore. A beautiful box but with extraordinary software, Steve's words.

It can go both ways, we'll have to wait.

Thanks a lot MR Crew!

I tried this last keynote, MWSF '07, and it was really weird. Of course I saw the iPhone preview on the Apple QT page, but watching it was like I was there. Sitting there, I found myself totally engaged with the video, and quite often, talking to myself about how amazing the iPhone was.

I've done it the MacRumorsLive way too. It's just as fun, because you can't wait for the next update and you find yourself looking around the internet for pictures and any other info.

ummm.... the same way they do now? there is not a chance in the world that OS X 10.5 will be able to run on PC... not because they can't do it.. they just DON'T WANT TO. The main reason people use Apple Computers is because they run OS X. Why dissconnect your software from your hardware?

You guys are all talking about the spoiler at the top of the spoiler-free page last time, but...

I thought I submitted my email address so I could have a link to the stream emailed directly to me without even having to first open a browser.

Also, do you (Arn) think you could do a follow-up email if and when they post a QT / podcast version of it? It's going to take a week for the stream to be watchable... When the stream is first posted you're lucky to get a frame every few seconds, and the connection just drops out a lot.

I don't have an HDTV, nor an :apple:TV, but that does sound like a sweet way to watch it if you got 'em. I do, however, have a DVD player that will play DiVX movies, so when I get the QT/podcast one I'll export it to DiVX and watch it on my stone age 480p TV. ;)

Edit: Actually, I guess the source might be 480p in the DiVX file, but the old standard NTSC TV would be 480i (or whatever the number of lines actually are). Symantics. :-)

Thanks to those who have resisted the urge to post spoilers to this thread... or to the moderators who are deleting them.

Let me guess....the QT encoder probably crashed near the end, so they had start all over again.... or the guy in charge met this cute girl during his lunch break..and is telling her how he as an iPhone at home..and he can show her if she comes along.

This isn't a spoiler, but here's a quick update on why it's taking so long. The Apple keynote editing team has had to do some quick CG touchup work on the real keynote video. Seems the Jobsbot3000's turtleneck wasn't the right shade of black, and the real Steve Jobs objected furiously from his secret vacation home in Bali.

So once they're finished colortiming the video and removing a couple other odd blemishes, we'll be seeing the video soon.

So reassuring! It's nice to know someone is looking out for us still.

I almost want to ask if it was worth the wait, but I don't want to know if it wasn't. I also don't want to get my hopes up too high either.

I think it appeared at 1400 hours Pacific, but it was pretty choppy and I only started watching it at 1500 or 1600 hours Pacific. My memory could be a bit imprecise but I am almost 100% sure it appeared before 1600 hours Pacific because I watched most of it that night and anything later would have made that impossible over here.

Thought I'd add something useful here. If you really don't want it to be choppy use VLC and set the caching value really high.

After making sure you have the advanced option checked in the lower left part of preferences the caching value can be set in...

Preferences > Input / Codecs > Access modules > File (If it's a file... might be an URL and then it'd probbably be HTTP(S), you can set the caching value in both.)

set it to something like 30s (that would be 30 000 ms) or higher and you should be guaranteed a pleasant watch!

Now if only they'd release it soon...

I've avoided the entire internet today to avoid spoiling any news. I too want to watch the keynote as my way of getting any news.

Its now been seven hours since the keynote began, and I'm guessing five hours since it ended. Wasn't the stream up within the hour the past few keynotes?

Waiting would be easier if I KNEW a quicktime would be posted... But, what if they are not going to this time?

Thanks for waiting with me though folks!

As per Apple's new Leapord page (I know you don't want to go there):

I'm in the same boat, my girlfriend pursuaded me not to spoil it by reading macrumorslive and now I'm getting tired. It's 01:08 in the morning over in the U.K.

I feel your pain. I'm in the UK too. My friend is leaving to go home tomorrow (we're at Uni) and we've stayed up and had a couple of beers, and still no keynote! A conversation on here may keep us all going in our time of need.

someone submitted this, don't know if true


I just spoke with an apple spokesman, and they told me that the keynote stream might/probably not be posted until tomorrow, because they're having trouble updating the site.

Meanwhile, i'm DYING over here, waiting for the damn thing to come up. I still don't know what happened at WWDC, and for apple to do this to me is mean and unfair. BLAH!

Update 2: An unconfirmed submission claimed this:

We can't verify if true... but stay tuned.

I'm a bit disappointed, too, but actually it's helping me get some design work done for tomorrow (just looking at the bright side).

It's 2:18 here in Spain and my head is getting heavier by the minute. I'm afraid I'll have to wait until tomorrow afternoon to be able to watch it; my Mac rss subscriptions keep growing and growing, and I dare not look at a single one of them... :confused:

It is especially so tempting now that I realize that my internet connection doesn't work with Quicktime streams. I have to wait till they post it on iTunes, and God knows when that will be.

This was my first time waiting for the stream rather than just getting the blow-by-blow live on some site. It was a great relief to know I wasn't the only crazy one out there, and reading this forum kept me from getting too impatient.

I'm pretty sure this is the way I'll do all future keynotes (unless I end up going to one of these conferences in person!).

So, who still hasn't watched the keynote? I couldn't because Quicktime streaming doesn't seem to work with my internet connection. So I'm waiting till it's on iTunes.

Where? I can't find it.
