    No news on a webcast as yet I take it? I would have thought we'd have got something. Apple seem to be dropping the idea of live webcasts which is a pitty.

    A Google search turned up this, but I didn't find any news either.

    It is too bad that they don't do live streams but at least they will have a recorded stream so it isn't too bad

    This shouldn't come as a big surprise, as Apple doesn't webcast everything live - even MWSF was a recorded broadcast. In the past Apple has streamed some shows live, others not, but we'll get to see it eventually so it's all good. :)

    Well I think the main reason to broadcast the keynotes was to show them in Apple Stores. Since it goes on in Paris, it will be 4am here (eastern time)and obviously there's no Apple Stores open at 4am so there's no reason to broadcast it, at least live. I would expect Apple to release a QuickTime broadcast later in the day, not that it matters so me as I'm on dialup. :(

    Yeah, that sounds about right. Shame though, it will be 6pm here in oz for me and I would have liked to watch it live...

    Hopefully the QT will be out within a couple of hours of the show

    I knew it was in Paris but for some reason I didn't figure in the time. Thank goodness it'll take place when I'm asleep! This way I don't have to reload every 15 seconds. That and I can drool over the iMac G5 and then take a shower to clean up.

    Well, I have orientation for school later on tuesday, but I'm tempted to stay up late and hit refresh every 5 seconds so I can see all of the new goodies.
    But I definately want to look good for my picture. :cool:

    I'm content with going to sleep and awaking to new goodies on the Apple site. It'll be just like Christmas!

    Or at least 10 minutes of Christmas, and without Santa. Last year Apple only released a little more than 10 minutes of the keynote address, presumably the end, where Steve introduced updated versions of the 12" and 17" PowerBooks, the much anticipated 15" Aluminum PowerBook, and the Wireless Mouse and Keyboard.

    Of course, the no Santa thing is about Steve not being well enough to do the keynote.

    At least G5 iMacs will be under the tree. :)

    Well I am very happy that I get to witness (we shall see how) an Apple event live at a reasonable hour

    My wife & I saw a live broadcast of MWSF via satellite at our local Apple Store. It was great, had a nice crowd. They provided three rows of seating. If MacWorld Paris is at 9am, which is the usual time, that would be at either 3 or 4am EDT. I know that I won't be up then. So will have to depend on the rebroadcast.

    Yeah, it kinda stinks that I have to stay up that late just to watch it. Sometimes it sucks living on the East coast.

    I'm still debating on weather or not to stay up all night, and see if they do a live broadcast, but I doubt they will, so I'll just try to get more sleep, and see the rebroadcast.

    I got this message using your link: The page you tried was not found. You may have used an outdated link or may have typed the address (URL) incorrectly. You might find what you’re looking for in one of these areas:

    I didn't see anything about a Paris Webcast on the page. Maybe you could find the link again?

    wdlove -

    That page won't point to anything until Apple puts the QuickTime broadcast of Apple Expo '04 in Paris up - jimsowden is predicting that the URL given is the most likely location for viewing the broadcast when it does come up.

    Not predicting. Thats where it will be. If you change 04 to 03, its last years. Thats how all the apple webcasts work, live or not. I did this for WWDC, worked perfectly.

    No, I think that he's possibly saying that it will not be definitely not un-live. Possibly. :cool:
