you should probably worry about school and then check macrumors.com when you get done with something like school that has much higher priority than knowing what apple releases, immediately as apple releases it.

to answer your question, i know of no such websites.

it's just high school i assume, it's not like he works at the White House.

apple news definitely takes priority.

(I'm not being sarcastic, i wouldn't be able to focus on work anyway.)

I'm surprised your guy's schools let you have cell phones on. We must have ours off at all times. Luckily in CST, the keynote is at 11:00 which corresponds to my Computer Concepts class at 11:00 so that means if we have free time, which we almost always do, I can pop onto MacRumors for updates and then at lunch to wap.macrumors.com (smaller text, better read) for the complete listing of products at 1:10, at which time the keynote will hopefully be done.

And you know what? One kid thinks I'm looking at pr0n. Apple products are much better then pr0n. (What a sick mind kids have these days)

we cant have them on but most of us keep ours on silent... but some of my friends phones vibrate very loud ie.( the Verizon V is super loud) im happy with the W300i that cant be heards except for the one time my external play button got hit and my music player got started.

Tomorrow is a half day(we only get one a month - great timing) for me, so I get out of school at 12:45pm EST. Should be home by 1pm EST, which means I'll get live updates for half the keynote.

I've got a work period with access to a computer lab, and a class in a computer lab from 8:40 to 11:40 (PST) tomorrow. I'm set to watch the site!

Provided the Windows boxes hold up for me, that is.

Missing A-levels could be the difference in living and living well and being able to afford the stuff.

What's the big deal with some electronics? CES is on this week, too.

School is important. These things will be nearly obsolete in 6 months.

...so that it nicely spans the commute home from work?

I'll be watching macrumorslive.com at work for the first 1/2 hour, then trying to get home ASAP to catch up. Having said that, I'll see if that page loads OK on my XDA

As I'm not working much at present this does not pose a problem.
