What time will Apple Post the KEYNOTE online for viewing?

Does anyone have any idea??
I am leaning heavily on not looking at any news online for the entire day of the keynote. When I get home about 7pm eastern time from work I will look at the keynote in its entirety online without spoilers so I can have the full experience.
But what is the longest they have ever gone until Apple finally posts the keynote online?
We need to know.

They usually post it later the same day. Might be up by 7 eastern.

Excellent!

Although, its going to be very hard to avoid news for that day. I've already instructed my boss to not listen to news on the radio which is his norm and my co-workers will not surf to news sites that day so they wouldn't accidently spill the news from Apple. They have all decided to comply including my boss because they would rather not face my wrath!!

They usually post the lo-res later that day.

I actually prefer to wait a day or so and watch the hi-res version.

Really?? I hadn't realized they did it that way. That sucks. Because I don't think I could hold out to wait a couple days for the hi-res version. They should immediately post the hi-res version. Why lo then hi?
GRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR!!!!!

There's like alot of people wanting to watch it instantly.

My guess is that they post the lo-res version right away to save bandwidth, or something along that line. ?

It's worth the wait though, trust me!

Unless you want Steve Jobs to be and inch tall on your screen.

Thing is the odds of me finding out the apple news accidently from somewhere till they finally post the hi res version is just too great. I can't tell my boss and the rest of my co-workers to go on a news blackout 2 days straight!

Ok something disturbing has just come back to my remembrance. The last keynote I tried to look at the low res through firefox and the low res stuttered and finally locked my browser to the point where it even froze my PC and I ended up having to reboot.
If I were to load up another stream for anything else....fine no probs. But only with the keynote did I get trouble. Perhaps I should set the bookmark using safari. Maybe there would be less problems?

I'd like to hold out to watch it, but as I recall the low-res version is pretty bad. I'm sure I'll cave and watch the text update.

If you watch the low res, like right after they post, I have had problems as well. If you wait about an hour, it should be a lot better. Basicly people give up if there are stuttering problems and free up bandwidth for those that wait a bit.

I remember when they did post the hi-res immediately. It was terrible. The video (as someone mentioned) would time out and stutter ike crazy. It was unwatchable.

I like the idea of putting it on iTunes, I wonder if Apple ever considered it. A lot of people would be willing to pay a few bucks for it.

It has to download the whole thing. About an hour on DSL. But then you can keep it forever.
