    Sorry if this has already been asked, but are the stores getting feeds of the Keynote tomorrow?

    Hoooeee I'm hoping!
    I'm going to call Apple Houston Galleria tomorrow morning and see.
    If they do, I'll be there with a folding chair and popcorn!!

    Through a little googling, it looks like Palo Alto did for one WWDC.
    ...lucky californians.. getting all the apple love. :( haha

    Well, I live in Boston and I've been to a WWDC screening there before but *sigh* I don't think they did it last year and I'm not sure if they'll do it this year either.

    It starts in nine and half hours from your post. Sorry, don' know the time conversion, but I'm in San Francisco, so I do know when it's starting.

    10 AM PST, (I believe), But I can't wait I hope for atleast a Quicktime feed (Usually posted a few hours after it's over but there are no Apple Stores around Salt Lake) So about 8.5 Hours from this post... (Yeah, you need to do the math yourself...)

    Yeah, but every geek on earth will be trying to watch it. It usually takes a good day or two before watching the stream is reliable.

    6pm UK time... which means the keynote probably won't be up until after midnight (so you might as well sleep) and then watch it in the morning when the Apple servers have cooled down a little.

    I doubt the stores will be getting feeds - they haven't for the past 3-4 keynotes.

    I called Apple Houston and they said no go. :(

    He did say that people with their laptops and Wifi were there for play-by-plays, so warm up your fingers, those who are in the audience! :)

    Well you could always do what some sports fans do: just don't talk to anyone, listen to the radio, or watch tv. Then when the keynote is available in Quicktime, you can watch it all unfold and still be suprised! ;)

    and the quicktime stream will be slow, as thousands of mac nerds try to access it all at the same time.

    Macrumors live, here I come! :) :)

    No the Apple Stores didn't get a live stream either. I was at my local Apple store at a little after 6pm. One of the staff said that he had just heard about the Intel switch. So apparently that didn't have a way to even track WWDC.
