    For those who haven't noticed:

    There's a countdown at the top of the MR homepage for the keynote.

    This should eliminate any confusion as to when the keynote will take place (like my incorrect assumption that it was on Monday :rolleyes: ).

    Good job arn, great idea!

    Just a second ago it said 7 hours -4 min to go, either there is some weird bug somewhere, or you just fixed it.

    When I logged on it said 6 days to go:) SO CLOSE! I can't wait to hop in my car with my dad and go to New York. Also the SoHo store is opening so we can go to that after MWNY! I will be sure to bring back some video for everyone to drool over!

    not good humoUr, but at least it's there..... more than i can say for.....


    i'm pumped for the show too. hitting it up wednesday noonish to be surprised by whatever was announced... all these conflicting rumors has made it easy to stay unsure of anything

    no one jokes on here, so no, none of it was in jest.

    now, i'd feel so much less excluded if you all carried on in private, where i have no access to what you are saying.

    When is the keynote? Is it Monday or Wednesday?

    I had heard it was Wed. But if that's the case, the countdown is wrong on my computer. :confused:

    About the count-down: is it location-sensitive? What i mean is, does it give the same time, wherever you are, or does it take into account what time zone you're in?

    Friday @ 12:12 = 4 days and 17 hours ... 'til Wednesday, 6 am...it's right.

    Think about it... it's a relative time... if you live in New York or Japan, it's still just as far away.
