    what do some of you guys do? I have class at 10, but i'm gonna ask my girlfriend to take my essay and turn it in, while i watch the keynote and get the credit card ready.

    are some of you guys at work and going to try to secretly watch the updates or is it in your jobs to work with the web?

    [also started this thread because im looking for career ideas, im currently a bio major looking towards dental school]

    I'm at work, I don't "secretly" need to do anything but I won't likely watch. I can't help you with a career path but you should note that shirking your responsibilities so you can stay home and watch a keynote seems rather irresponsible. It is just a keynote and frankly, I personally don't see how moving aside everything else just to get the most up to date tech news is at all necessary. That is just me and I'm old so that could potentially be why our views vary.

    Oops. I help manage human pharmaceutical drug studies. I'm the one who finds all of those side effects you see on your prescription label. :)

    Astronomy ends at 11:50, then headed up to my dorm to read the forums until 1. Then hoping for a live stream! If not, following Engadget.

    Haha I wish regarding the latter. I'm an iPad and future MB Air user because my weekday life consists of flying from city to city to evaluate studies for the pharma companies and FDA. Traveling light is key.

    I manage a small store. So I'll be rocking the engadget live blog till I leave here at 4. Then I'll go home and watch the video of the whole keynote.

    +1 for cubicle dweller (Finance). I'll probably check the Engadget updates on my lunch, we'll see how it goes. I'm not upgrading from my iPad1,1, but looking forward to seeing what you all will be enjoying within the next few weeks :)

    Web Developer, so I doubt I'll be the only person at my company following the keynote. My company's pretty relaxed so as long as I get my work done and do a good job they could care less what I do (how every company should be).

    One of the biggest problem areas I see in my bio students is poor grammar and spelling. Perhaps you should spend more time in your English class...
