    I had a meeting scheduled for today that I rescheduled for tomorrow. I did so last week, thinking the event was going to be today since it's usually held on Tuesdays. Big mistake, but I should hopefully be home in time to watch the keynote live.

    I live in the UK so I don't need to take the day off work. The event will take place at 6PM UK time and I finish work at 5PM. I'll be back home in time to watch it at 6PM. :)

    I've taken the whole day off. I'll follow all the build up online, news, speculations, and probably stream a few memorable past keynotes throughout the day. It's so exciting. There is no day bigger than this for Apple fans.

    No. Sites like this will give me everything I need in a shorter time frame.

    I find the big reveal more exciting when we learn what we'll be getting. Taking delivery of all those pre-orders isn't too far behind though. :)

    I always take my vacation in September and its always been around the time Apple has one of their events! So yes I'm off already. I did request Sept 18th and 25th (just in case the release date is Sept 25th instead of the 18th) because I'll probably have to go pick up my phone at the store so I need the whole day off :D

    I live in the UK but work nights so for me I'll be waking up around 5pm, showering, ordering takeaway and sitting down for the whole thing like some kind of big geek event happening live in my bedroom. I always get far too excited for these events, even if I don't intend to buy the product. :p

    No. I'll just check this site (or the MacRumors Twitter) after I get back to my desk from lunch.

    I'm not wasting a PTO day to watch the keynote. I'll follow the live updates on here or on Engadget.

    It's simple for me: I'll watch the keynote on my Apple TV as it unfolds. I don't work as work tends to get in the way of other things I'd rather be doing.

    I'll watch it on Apple TV as it unfolds. I work from home, so it won't be an issue.

    Spoiler-free video thread if i can't make it, it's in fact a good way to stay unplugged for a few hours (cause to avoid spoilers i won't go into twitter or fb)

    EDIT: i agree with most people here. No one should take a day off for this stuff. Again, spoiler-free video thread guys!

    Normally I'm out of work by the time an apple event would start, but of course tomorrow is the one day that I have an unusual schedule.
