    I am still rather new to MacRumors.com, but I was wondering... will there be some sort of live coverage for MWSF like the was for the Paris EXPO?
    Is that sort of thing standard for the site? Because I couldn't pry myself away from the computer during the Keynote speech.

    In the recent past, keynotes were rarely viewable via live stream - too bad that they decided to broadcast them via satellite only. It may happen that the CONSUMER show MWSF has a live stream though.

    I just hope it, really!!!

    The last time that there was a live stream of a keynote by Steve, I had problems. I had difficulty connecting and then staying connected. If I remember correctly, it was almost an hour after the beginning that I could connect.

    Since this is going to be a great occasion with the 20th anniversry of the Mac, I probably will go to my local Apple Store.

    Just to post my random prediction...
    I think the best case scenario would be that Steve says "we are going G5" and presents G5 XServes, G5 Powerbooks and low GHz G5 iMacs, leaving the G4 only in iBook and eMac. That product line would make sense, wouldn´t it? Who knows if IBM is once again ahead of schedule with their 90 nm 970s.
    R&D for G5 Pro Equipment is most possibly long done, all thats missing is the chip itself. Who knows :p

    For Apple to announce a new product (ie. G5 PowerBooks), how far away would it have to be from actually shipping, a week, a month, a couple of months, or would it be ready that day?

    As we have seen with the G5 Mac, Steve will announce new products on a special event. He won´t let have his thunder stolen. And since it is 20 years of Macintosh now, it would be time for a BOMB like my prediction.

    And Steve wouldn´t shy away from that announcement if it meant that Powerbooks are sold in February or March. Just look at the ship dates of the original iMac.

    MacRumors will have live coverage.

    We've managed to do live coverage for every major event for a while now....

    So, it's a "standard" thing for MacRumors.

    As others have hinted... for major consumer shows, Apple has historically done live streams of the keynotes... so you may be able to watch it live yourself.

    Either way, we'll have a live transcript going.

    Thanks arn, I just hope that there is a stream!
    Anyone who had a stream once will agree that a transcript is not the "real deal" ;) and we Mac heads are looking for our dose of Steve, don´t we? :D

    In the past, there was some nice guy in the iChat room "MacRumors" who was writing what he was watching on the screen. More direct than reloading MR, and still not as crowded as IRC.
