    I really wish Apple added a "pay to watch" option to cover costs. I'd gladly pay $5 to see it live. Watching it afterwards is like watching a game you've recorded knowing who won. It's no fun.

    Just come to http://www.macrumors.com near the time of the event, and it'll all be clear.

    we'll have live web updates as well as IRC updates.

    There is no video webcast of this keynote, so you have to rely on live text transcripts.

    Because Apple doesn't want and doesn't make one.

    You'd think someone who'd be attending could have a cell phone call to MacRumors HQ or something, which would then be streamed to the masses. I wouldn't think the phone would have trouble picking up the Steve's voice, as long as there wasn't tons of talking in the crowd.

    The best way is to get a good seat about 1/3 of the way back. Close enough to see the live stuff up on stage but still able to see the screens well.

    :)

    As for cell phhnes and wireless inside the room,
    my experience is that it is rather crappy. Too many people going OMFG and trying to get word out at once.

    Is there going to be any video feeds? Not live, but afterwards?

    Traditionally Apple has posted one a few days later on this page.

    This time-- who knows? :eek:

    I love watching them, even after I know what was announced. I guess there is just something about seeing Steve present it and hearing the crowd go wild. I usually just start it playing, make it full screen and lean back and watch the whole thing. I enjoy watching steve give demos of software and explain some new product.

    If "any IRC client" sounds a little intimidating, try MRChat 1.0.2... Until I figured out Conversation, that was my choice for Keynotes... ;)
