    I was hoping Apple's App would at least give public access to event news, but alas no :(

    I usually go with Engadget but may give Ars Technica a spin this time. I've also become a Jim Dalrymple fan recently so I may use his site at loopinsight.com

    I use Engadget myself. As long as the site doesn't lag it's decent.

    usually I use engadget. It's pretty good.

    Seriously?? interesting... does it keep updating with the various products as they are shown off on stage?

    For the live blogs I keep both Engadget and The Verge up. I prefer The Verge but engadget will sometimes say something they omit and vice versa.

    For audio commentary I watch twit.tv live. I love hearing Leo Laporte's over-reactions balanced by Alex Lindsey's positive reactions and Andy Inhatko's level headedness.

    Then after, whenever it's put up, I'll listen to 5by5's Hypercritical with John Siracusa's insane critic.

    I've found the verge has really good live blog coverage for a lot of tech events, so I go with them.

    Of course, if you have the patience the best is going spoiler free and watching the video stream Apple posts later in the day.

    I tried that before actually. But it's almost impossible to do. You can even browse the internet at all on Apple keynotes. Just about any place on the web that reports anything at all reports the stuff Apple releases right then. Also when I went to Apples site to watch the presentation when it was posted, I couldn't get to it without seeing almost every major thing released before even watching the video.

    Someone posted on the forum the other day that no live blogging would be allowed at WWDC. Is this an antiquated rule that nobody pays attention to or is it new this year? Could obviously screw up live blogging if so :/

    Where does Apple post the keynote and approximately when? If it was up around 8pm EST I could easily avoid spoilers at work and watch it when I got home.

    is this true?

    will macrumors be posting relatively live information?

    Oh, it's incredibly difficult to do. It's basically having to lock yourself in a box for the day until someone comes along and pokes you with a stick saying it's safe to come out.

    Thankfully, I don't go to apples site to check when it's posted. In the spoiler free threads that start on these forums, people are kind enough to post direct links.

    Hey, Did you tried Apple Library? I see products from there and buy from the amazon always :)

    The Verge probably, if they can keep up with the load without server issues.

    Though, going to try my best and wait for the keynote to appear online.

    Is it too obsessive to follow multiple sites? I usually do engadget, but I'm thinking this year I'll add the verge and macrumors to the mix

    You really ought to check out the Apple Keynotes podcast feed, then. The keynote will just show up in iTunes or your favorite podcast program when it's put up.

    HD version
    SD version
