Why did the webstreams seem to go away? It's like if you don't have a satellite, or an Apple Store nearby, you have to sit staring, reloading a silly webpage for news.

Hopefully MSNBC will carry the Apple event (isn't that an oxymoron?).

not the first time

This is not the first time Apple has done this. I watched the unveiling of the iTunes Music Store at the Retail Store in Tampa.

A curiosity

I have little doubt the the iTunes music store for Windows will be announced... but...

What about the current countdown for Panther? They certainly won't bump that off their main page for anything will they? It just seems weird I suppose. Something to think about.

Well, i thought about that yesterday, i think they will just bump it down to the bottom, like they did the G5 and then return it to the front when its released.

I'm guessing a split image. There's plenty of space for both concepts.

Fill in the blank->

Odd isnt the right word but it is ____ to me that apple is streaming the broadcast and having bands celebreate itunes for PC when a lesser deal was made for the products on their own platform. I realize the bigger market, but still. its just a little _____.

Didn't Apple do this last time when Jag was announced? I seem to remember another annoucement and the countdown clock was put in a smaller box below with a counter.

1. iTunes for Windows - definite
2. iTMS for Windows - definite
3. Launch of new ad campaign - definite
4. Pod accessory - good chance
5. iTunes 5 for Macs - 50-50
6. new iPod features (not related to accessories) - possible

With just 1-4, it'll be a blockbuster event. This is a BIG DEAL for Apple. Apple should pull out all stops for the Windows iTMS--it has the potential to make a lot more impact on Apple than iTMS for Mac ever will. The combination of iTMS and iPod could be the killer appliance+internet commerce combination that everyone's dreaming of pulling off (including Sony, Msoft, Dell, etc.).

interesting to note

I find it interesting that out of four possible stores in the San Francisco bay area, only one is carrying the feed. And my luck, it is the furthest from my house. Oh well. At least one of them is broadcasting.

I am excited to see what they announce.

What? When? I have watched every stream that i can remember for the past couple of years and i have no idea what you are talking about. Apple has their own streaming media server why would they possibly do such a thing.

Uhm... I don't think Apple has *ever* streamed anything in windows media.

Unless, what I considered to be a typo, you actually meant "if they do steam it", then perhaps they will steam windows media. :p

MSNBC relayed the previous Music Event sat feed over Windows Media.

We had known satellite coordinates then though

I can't wait to see how fast itunes is on relatively new (under a year old) mac and pc systems. I think the pc will get higher visualization fps, but overall I want to see how fast my pc is compared to my mac. Considering what Apple claims about the speed of my system compared to PC's when it came out, they should be pretty even. I hope it will do the rendezvous thing between OS's, no reason to have one computer doing all the work of playing songs when you have more than one on a network.
