    So how many of us will be on for this particular keynote? I'm sure I will be. This place is going to basically be unusable if certain products are released. (e.g. iPhone)

    It will be useable. It switches over to the MacRumorsLive system, which uses a low amount of bandwidth and refreshes by itself for you. The forums are usually disabled to save bandwidth and, I would assume, to prevent 82349324908324 "LOOK WHAT WAS RELEASED" threads. :p

    At what time is the keynote? I probably won't be able to watch it but it would be cool to see some of it.

    9 AM Pacific on Tuesday...you'll just get text-based updates (and hopefully some pics) here, but it's about the best you can do. Apple will post the Quicktime video a few hours after it ends.

    All hands on deck?

    You'll need to delete all those: "The FIRST post about the new [insert iTV's true name here]"

    That will be nice. It's always frustrating when the forums are overloaded right after the keynote. This one's going to be big no matter what, because either everybody's going to be logging on to complain that they were disappointed, or else it really is going to be as big as it has been hyped to be, and that'll be just as bad for forum traffic.

    It's a pity that it will start at around 3.30AM in Brisbane. Looks like I'll find out all the latest gadgets in the early morning.

    Wow, you're lucky. No WiFi at my school (I think), and I'm deeply afraid of bringing my new Sidekick as it would likely be stolen.

    I will either have to wait until I get home or sneak into the PC lab and pretend to look something up for a report. :)

    I'll probably save myself, keep away from the forums, and watch the keynote on quicktime. This way I get the max effect.

    Not saying it won't be hard keeping away from here, lol

    This is the first chance I've had, so I'm not going to miss it. I'll be avoiding the forum(s) and waiting for the Spoiler Free© QT-delay. Who'd have thought this would be one of the benefits of being temporarily unemployed?! :)

    I'm going for popcorn, some Cokes and beers, and 10 sites open simultaneously in Firefox with live coverage. It's that time of year again... snif! :)

    That's so sad... I'll be doing exactly the same :D

    Will the MRChat IRC thread be up and running this time? If so could someone explain how people can download it, because I can't remember how I got mine :eek:

    Gizmodo.com will have near-live up-to-the-minute photos of the Keynote. They're bringing a special rig with that automatically resizes and uploads pictures to the website within 30 seconds of the photographer taking them. Pretty cool.

    Yes, it'll be running and can be downloaded from here

    You never know, we might have something similar ;)

    (although I think 30 seconds is probably pushing it for ours)
